Strengths:    Size/weight
Battery Life
Handlebar bracket

Weaknesses:    User Interface

Bottom Line:   
This is the 4th GPS receiver I've owned. My original was an eTrex model, a much more primitive one, but I liked it. Then I got a Garmin Edge 205 which was a good bike computer but a marginal GPS, then the Delorme unit which was, well, garbage.

I just got this so that I could stop being annoyed with my Delorme, and so far I'm very pleased. I just expected it to be as good as my original eTrex, but it's vastly improved on many fronts. The color display is very good, the battery life is incredible. And it is much sturdier in the way that it attaches to the optional handlebar mount.

Garmin etrex Legend HCx newbie

I have this unit for 2 years now and occasionally use it to track ride time, mileage etc. and that's only if I remember bringing it. If someone is inclined, I can really use all the help to better utilize this gadget i.e. use it to guide me in unfamiliar trails (if that's a possibility). TIA..Read More »

Etrex Legend HCX, 60gsx or something else?

I'm looking for a GPS mostly to help me navagate dirt/jeep/fire roads. So, mapping and turn by turn is important. Don't really need elevation. I would like to be able to plan out my route before hand. I have a bike computer so I don't need cadence or any thing like that. I was looking at the Ga ... Read More »

Which to buy? 60CSx/eTrex Legend HCx or 705?

I'm, obviously, attempting to avoid buying more than one unit to do it all. I want to be able to use it on the bike, snowshoeing, hiking, etc. and for the car. Sitting here looking at the Garmin comparison between the 60CSx & the eTrex Legend HCx I see almost no difference aside from screen size, ov ... Read More »
