Summary: Great little device, instructions are easy to understand. I just got back from a backpacking trip in the sierra nevada mountains and this gps took me right to the spot where I wanted to go. Thanks to the after market topo my unit came with. The screen is bright even in daylight.

Overall a very good system with a few design flaws that need changes.

Summary: Generally, a very good field GPS. The Display is small for middle-aged eyes, but being sunlight-readable is a plus. The menu also takes some time to figure out. Also, the controls and stick are not designed for gloves or cold weather use, but again this is a good system for general use.
Very good product. Sensitive receiver. Free third party maps.

Summary: This is an excellent product. I was most amazed that when I first turned it on, I was sitting in my basement and it got a location using 5+ satellites. My other GPS units can't see any. Works literally anywhere in my house, and inside the car.
Summary: This unit is the best GPS I've ever owned or used. I'm 19 and I thrive on backpacking trips and extreme sports. I've never owned a mapping GPS, but this little guy has definitely set a high standard.
Summary: Bought this because of my previous experience with an older vista gps and was needing to update. Great features and functions for the money with the longest battery life. I did have trouble with the display after a few years use on an earlier model of vista, so will see how this one does.
Summary: I bought it because the product is excellent , very reliable , easy to use .Nothinng to disslike . The product comparing to others is far more easyer to use and with far more technik advantage then other
Summary: I have start the GARMIN DEVICES many years ago having the previous model eTrex Vista with B/W screen. Currently I decide that in one hand held device you can find something more accurate and ejoiable as this device and even there are new models in the market, I choose to buy again the same.
