Contents of the Package
FeaturesThe eTrex Vista HCx uses a high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled receiver to accurately locate
your position and maintain your GPS location, no matter what terrain surrounds you.
Use the eTrex Vista HCx’s barometric altimeter to pinpoint your exact altitude and
track changes in pressure to help you anticipate changing weather conditions. And the
built-in electronic compass provides your bearing even when you’re standing still.
With eTrex Vista HCx’s microSD card slot, it’s simple to add maps without even turning
on your computer. All you need to do is insert optional preloaded microSD cards with
MapSource data for fun on land and water. And, if you need turn-by-turn directions,
just plug in a MapSource card with detailed street maps. And don’t worry about getting
your card slot wet, it’s located in the waterproof battery compartment.
Just like its cousins in the eTrex series, the Vista HCx is compact and lightweight,
making it perfect for travel. It’s not only waterproof, but its 256-color,
sunlight-readable display means you’ll have no trouble distinguishing map details, no
matter how brightly the sun shines.

One of the best general purpose gps.I also have a Legend HCx and have used other models before but this one is a compact powerpack. The Page key is hard to push compared to other units.

It''s a great product, but later I find that it''s a product four years ago, but is still popular. I recommend you to choose a more latest one.

I don''t have a lot of experience with GPS and cannot compare with others. However, it seems to have a lot of features and pulls in satellites well. It would be nice if detailed topo map or two came with it and I didn''t have to buy them separately. Price from GPS4US was best I could find online. Generally happy, but not overjoyed.
