Very easy to learn, lots of features
Pros: Large, bright display. Just-right form factor. Easy to learn (with or without the manual).
Cons: Pretty basic package; you'll likely need to buy an accessory or two.
It's all good with the Garmin, so far. Its interface, feature set and quality are outstanding. Read More at Epinions.com

See new vistas with the Vista Cx!
Pros: Good performance, feature loaded, durable in most regards, easy to read, electronic compass.
Cons: No way to disable barometric altimeter, kinda ugly, expensive maps
I'd strongly suggest looking at the competition as well, but that doesn't make this a less excellent product! It is definitely an extremely flexible little device~ Read More at Epinions.com

A good moderate priced small GPS unit with the necessities.
Pros: Small, light weight, good (but not excellent) reception, great battery life, reasonable price.
Cons: Low quality base map, wish the screen were slightly larger, not good for driving.
A good economical choice for outdoor types with all the features you need, but also compare the HCx version for better reception. Not recommended for driving. Read More at Epinions.com

Real world experience review of this GPS unit
Pros: Fairly inexpensive now that it has been replaced with a newer model.
Cons: Poor signal reception which is easily lost. Lousy preloaded maps.
I would not buy another one. I would shop for a unit that has a better sensor. Read More at Epinions.com
