Summary: I love this GPS. Previously, I had a Magellan handheld GPS (with dim black and white display). It worked well for about 5 years... getting me from point A to point B while I drove my family around California to visit relatives. Recently, I decided that I wanted more so I bought an eTrex Vista CX.
saves tracklog WITH timestamps to the microSD data card
21 March 2009
Summary: I've had my eTrex Vista Cx for several years now and have been quite happy with it. I use it for hiking, sailing, and now soon geotagging photos. Normally the saved track logs are condensed to save space - and so they remove the timestamps for each point.
Summary: My Garmin Vista continues to amaze me with the different ways we find to use it. As I become more familiar with its functions I see how useful it really is- for fun and for information. Thanks for a great product.
Summary: I like to hike and backpack, and a friend recently turned me on to geocaching. After a lot of research, and I mean A LOT, I decided to go with the Vista hCX because it seemed to do everything in a small compact unit.
Summary: I love this GPS. When I bought it new, it did everything I wanted it to. There's no weather information but I figure I am outside I can see what the weather is. The accuracy is typically 5-7ft when in open terrain and anywhere from 6-14ft when in semi-dense trees.
Summary: I love my eTrex. It works for everything. I use it for hiking, mountain biking and road biking. It will run on 2 AA batteries for a long time if you turn off the map and just run the "computer" (speed/distance) screen.
Summary: For a road motorcycle driver, or anyone who must use it in his puckett, it's size is as great as it's reception, even with it's small screen you can always see and follow what you're looking for.
