Nice personal gps, but useless w/o added maps I bought one of these expecting it to be useable out of the box. After all. great transacion. Bought if for a gift and got it in plenty of time. Have not heard any reports yet on how great it is.

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.
