Garmin eTrex Vista Reviews

4.00 out of 5


Garmin eTrex Vista GPS with built-in barometric altimeter and electronic compass! The eTrex Vista combines a basemap of North and South America, with a barometric altimeter and electronic compass. The compass provides bearing information while you're standing still and the altimeter determines your precise altitude. The Vista is also designed to provide precise GPS positioning using correction data obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). Provides position accuracy to less than 3 meters when receiving WAAS corrections. The eTrex Vista also boasts an internal memory capacity of 24 MB, which allows it to accept downloaded mapping data from Garmin's MapSource CD-ROMs, including U.S. Regional Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots. A silver case gives this unit a high-tech look. New... this model includes marine aids to navigation in addition to the basemap. These navigational aids are pre-loaded so your GPS is ready to use right out of the box! Order Today! Garmin eTrex Vista GPS

Review: I use this on both backpacking trips and motorcycle trips. If you purchase Garmins mapping software, the map is really detailed down to dirt roads. Without, like the last reviewer said, don't get to far away from major roads. Lots of features, and user friendly. Built in compass is nice and you can turn off the GPS to save on batteries when using just the compass. I have also used it with a laptop and Street Atlas. No problems interfacing the two.

Review: Rugged but the screen is a little small and the resolution is just so-so. Includes all the mapping functions you'd expect in a recreational GPS but more detailed maps will cost extra. Built-in basemaps have major highways and even exit info (restaurants, gas, etc.) built in but good luck if you venture too far off the beaten path.
