etrex Vista

chris50333, Ebay
11 August 2010
  • Summary: Although the discription was of the newer model of vista (cx, or one with a color screen)was not correct, from the picture I could see it was not the right description so I was not supprised by the Item I recieved. The price was right and I am happy with the vista gps I recieved. The etrex line of gps recievers have been a solid line and will continue to be until they all turn to dust.

Nice GPS, not the greatest reception

m_hobbes, Ebay
28 May 2010
  • Summary: This GPS worked great for me most of the time. In the car or on the bike, it did everything I wanted with ease. But it doesn't hold a signal well under heavy tree cover. This was a big problem for me, since I'm a trail runner & backpacker, so I upgraded to the GPSMAP 60CSX. This problem isn't unique to the eTrex Vista, however; all the units with an internal antenna, even the new touch-screen Dakotas, have less than stellar reception.

It is a good solid lightweight gps...

alexovchinnikov, Ebay
10 August 2009
  • Summary: Like: Nice 256-color TFT technology produces a bright, sunlight-readable display. Longer battery life for more hours of outdoor enjoyment. Waterproof to IPX7 standards. Dislike: The WAAS-enabled eTrex Vista CX uses up to 12 satellites. It took about 10 minutes to locate satellites at first, but after that it is pretty quick. In city between high building GPS receiver lost signal. The Vista Cx is non expandable with a new microSD HC memory card.

Garmin eTrex Vista Cx Of Lobstering in Fl Keys

davervaught, Ebay
1 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Garmin eTrex Vista Cx Of Lobstering in Fl Keys. My father inlaw Has waypoints on mini sd card. The vista cx accepts that card, as you may or may not know the keys can get very very shallow very fast. I broke off my skegg finding that out.The Gps show me what track to take 20 miles out no problem.

kGarmin Etrex Vista

hunter5310, Ebay
3 February 2009
  • Summary: The feature that drove me to buy this model was the removable memory. It adds versitility, I use the GPS in many parts of the country and thought I needed the ability for multiple chips. It turns out the 128 mb chip that came with the GPS has so much room I was able to load all the areas that I need from the Map Disc, I dont need another chip! Its great! The color screen is a very nice feature, not absolutley necessary but nice.

A Definite Learning Curve

rekirrac, Ebay
8 January 2009
  • Summary: Since this is my first GPS I don't have anything to compare it to, but I do know this. I'm finding out that what I've read about Garmin products both before and after I purchased this unit are true; It's not very user friendly for a beginner and the only mapping software that is compatible is Garmin's, which is fairly expensive.

Great Tool for Geocaching

melindac122, Ebay
6 July 2007
  • Summary: I am into Geocaching. I was using a PDA and a Pharos GPS. It was accurate but awkward. I read several reviews of different GPS units at the Geocaching.com site and decided the Garmin eTrex would be the right replacement. Since I do a lot of shopping on ebay, I of course, checked here for it and found one for a decent price. This Garmin GPS unit is great for Geocaching! It's small, sturdy and pretty easy to use.
