Garmin GPS receivers support geocaching game functions. 2 time. out geocaching friends, newer units satellites, given directions cache found before unit even a fix! 3 Battery life. ancient Vista devoured batteries a set alkaline batteries last 4 hours. I eTrex Vista HCx replacement. I overlooked Garmin GPSMap 60CSx hugely well geocachers very similar functionality. , I upgraded Vista I sorely disappointed? positive points: + hot time ~3 seconds brilliant + much improved time ~30 90 seconds much better ancient one + battery life a single set NiMH 2500 mAH rechargeable batteries 20 hours, compared 2 hours NiCD batteries ancient one + colour screen much nicer ancient monochrome one + geocaching features exactly ‘s required + accuracy unit much greater ancient one + works reasonably well under trees, ancient one hopeless woods. negative points: – unit freezes time time again. ‘s a mood’ day, caching. – rubber gasket fits around side unit slides around glue holds inadequate. gasket ancient Vista fine 10 years. Everyone I know newer eTrex units same problem. – ancient Metro maps load, turn- -turn navigation work . Time fork out extra a3a3a3 maps already . – limit 1000 waypoints remains, even a capacity memory card installed. – Waypoint names restricted 16 characters comments 32 characters. inadequate recording observations. – maps sometimes disappear during , -up. Restarting unit sometimes cures . times necessary restart unit without memory card, restart again memory card. verdict: don’t Vista HCx, spend extra GPSMap 60CSx instead won’t suffer deficiencies, same advantages. menus functions Vista HCx quite different ancient Vista, ‘s a familiarisation process anyway. greater number buttons 60CSx many frequently used functions more accessible. customers find helpful reviewsa0 review helpful ?a0 | a0
