Summary: Functions as indicated, but difficult to enter points and battery consumption is high when using constantly. But is is portable and good for hiking or when cannot plug into 12v system, like in a boat. Instructions do not say how to enter points any other way.
Summary: I tried this in the NH lakes region where I lived near the top of a large hill. I could not get a reading even while standing in my driveway with a clear view of the sky, never mind going into the woods with it.
Summary: The Garmin Vista H is just as advertised, in great operational condition. The case has a scratch as advertised, but when in the neoprene case I bought you would never know it. All the buttons function fine as does the unit. This is replacing a Garmin Vista I had but lost.
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase, although the screen is just about impossible to read because of the very very high DPI. But that is just the way it goes. Maybe soon I will buy one of the 2015 versions. This item is a product of its time. And it's a good one.
Summary: I have used this GPS for recreation and professional uses and it has always been a reliable tool. One could hope for a little more accuracy, but only if you are willing top shell out two grand. For the price this unit is a bargain.
Summary: Garmin makes this talk garmin brand is very good and not the signal is lost between paths enclosed by forests and buildings, I live in Venezuela and took him with me whenever I go hiking, beach, the Gran Sabana in order to output all my walk, I highly recommend as well as the seller
