Marilyn, March 11, 2009 While the GPS works very well and takes the beat
of beening on a ATV running thru wood's trails and
once I figured out how the user interface worked,
the manual is not very clear to a novice user, I
was impressed with it.
The thing I found bad about was the description of
what input it had. It says that it had a computer
data input but failed to mention it was a 9 pin
serial data input. I was expecting a USB input
thus when I received the unit because my computer
has no 9 pin serial input I had to find and
purchase a converter cable.
There is a Vista unit available with a USB input
so maybe a note could be prominently placed
somewhere explaining this.
Dale Ireland, March 29, 2008 I bought this Vista not long after they were introduced. I think it was about mid-2000. It has worked perfectly. I still use it often and it is still being updated and supported. I think the long production life speaks for itself. Not many electronic models stay in production anywhere near this long.
mARK, September 5, 2007 this one actually works in the woods! i had a garmin emap, but it lost the satellites all the time under forest canopy. the HCx had at least 8 all the hours i was out walking. that's in central ontario (ie, temperate zone) forest.
LYNDON LUDDITE, December 31, 1969 The Vista is top flight instrument and I give it a 5 but I cannot understand why the display is amber background with amber characters which makes it difficult to read. The speedometer in my car broke and they wanted over 200.00 to fix it so I just put my Vista on the dashboard and with the big size trip computer page display it is easy to read. I might say that the easiest way to learn its use is to keep it in your car and go thru the meriad of drop down menues and pretty soon you can call yourself an expert. The batteries last me about 10 to 12 hours on a trip. Yes, Yes, I give it a 5.
