Comparing to eTrex earlier model, Legend HCx is greatly improved. The satellite reception is much stronger. This is a great GPS. i love it, i am a hunter so it is a great hand held GPS for me. I like the color screen, and it maps my direction very well.

Bought this for geo-tagging my photos and it works great. Buy a memory card because at 1 GPS fix/second the onboard space fills up fast. I havent used this back in the states yet, but if it can survive the elements and atmosphere out here.

Creating a Route

Routing creates a sequence of waypoints that lead you to your final destination. The eTrex stores 50 routes with up to 250 points each. Create or modify a route using the Routes page, and add waypoints to a route. Create complex routes using MapSource mapping.

Route Page

Route on the Map Page
To create a waypoint on a saved track:
1. Press MENU twice > Routes. 2. Select New > <Select Next Point>. 3. Use the Find Menu to select a route waypoint from one of the Find groups. 4. Select Use to add it to the route. 5. Select Navigate.

To create a route:

Methods for routing you to a destination If you select Go To on the Waypoint page, or for other Find items, a straight path is created. If you select Navigate when on a Route page, the eTrex uses a route made of waypoints or Find Menu items. It navigates directly from point to point. When using an eTrex HCx unit, both navigation methods change when you select the Follow Roads option on the Routing Setup page. Both Go To navigation and point-to-point allow you to Auto-route using roads. Auto-routing uses roadways in the map database to automatically calculate a route to your destination. Turns on roadways are preceded by a guidance message with a graphic of the turn.

Using Auto-Routing

(Auto-Routing is a feature available only with the eTrex Vista HCx and Legend HCx.) This feature is enabled when using City Navigator mapping data. When you select a destination, and select Go To, you are queried, Follow Road or Off Road. Using Follow Roads increases the number of turns and shows an Active Route page. Select Off Road to view only a list of route points. A Calculating Route message appears until the route calculation is complete. Your route appears as a magenta line overlaying the map.

2. Hold the unit at eye level and line up the two sighting marks with the distant object. Press ENTER to lock the direction. 3. Select Set Course.
5. Enter an estimated distance from your current location to establish a projected waypoint location. 6. Select Go To to open the Map page and begin navigation to the projected waypoint. The Compass page shows a bearing pointer for guidance.
Using the Course or Bearing Pointer
The bearing pointer and course pointer are independent of each other. The bearing pointer indicates the direction to your destination, and the course pointer indicates your relationship to a course line leading to the destination. If the bearing pointer arrow is pointing straight up, for example, you are going directly to your destination. If it points any direction other than up, turn toward that direction until the arrow is pointing up and then continue in that direction. The bearing pointer points to the destination.
If you are using the course pointer option, and you drift away from the line of travel from your original location to your destination, the course deviation indicator (an arrow with horizontal dotted line) provides graphic indication of drift (right or left) according to the scale shown on the compass ring. Move to the right or left to get back on course.

0.25 mi

The course pointer indicates your course of travel from your original location and the distance off course.
The bearing pointer always indicates the direction to your destination from your current location. eTrex HC series Owners Manual31
