VERY GOOD!

jazz072248, Ebay

  • Summary: I still use the old Nat Geo TOPO! software because I have hundreds of dollars invested in it. I have the original eTrex (now over 15 years old and not WAAS-enabled) and wanted to upgrade. I bought this discontinued GPS because I believe it is the last and most advanced unit Garmin made that is compatible with TOPO! I was not disappointed.

  • 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. Waypoints are easy to set and the unit is small and compact and very easy to pack. Batteries can last up to 20hrs more or less depending on use.

  • Excerpt: With four years of use I still really like the Garmin Vista HCx. Pros : Really high sensitivity, color screen, micro sd card slot, electronic compass, small size, long battery life, excellent tracklogs, trip computer is adjustable and great, altitude and altitude display, records all my tracks as gpx files on the micro sd card, turn by turn routing with optional maps, it is a very tough unit.

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. Display is best viewed in bright light, but the built-in adjustable back light works beautifully when you don't have good lighting. Lots of options on what to view and how to view it.

The most value for the money.

  • 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. So far it has been a huge improvement over the old design in functionality, as it works in any amount of tree cover and even indoors!
