User Review: Garmin eTrex Legend HCx
Price Paid: $180
Great GPS! Have used this on many many occasions.
Plotted a 35 mile kayak trip down river with help of software and internet with relative ease.
Tracked progress and trails for off-road park in NH. Used tracks from a day of driving through brush and creating trails to overlay on map and show where we had been. Very cool!
Will be trying with AMC White Mt. Guide on-line this year for starting to tackle the four thousand footers.
Have not had any issues with reception or accuracy despite being in gorges.
Having the backlit screen is a necessity, having it in color is fun.
This is definitely waterproof, it has taken many unplanned plunges off of the kayak.
I would recommend getting the caribiner attachment, it certainly aids in the convenience factor.
