This receiver works like my other eTrex receivers and my old eMap. Communicates nicely with MapSource on the computer, so allows downloading and visualizing on a map the way points and tracks.
The monochrome display is difficult to see in sunlight, however. I'f this is to be your only hand-held GPS, spend more and get a color display, the eTrex Venture HC is a good choice. If you want a tracker, and don't need to see where you are, this one will suffice. It has the same tracking capabilities as the color-screen eTrexes.
I just purchased and tested garmin legend with some of the reaults are:
1) Updated software at garmin.com, followed inscructions on their update page went like clock work, abosolutely no problems.
2) Tested all functions, walking, traveling in car, and subsystems within the garmin legend tracking unit. All worked well except map location of one of the roads I was on. After driving in the car and stopped I switched over to the map. The map page show a few road names ( I have not purchased any garmin legend maps, this is original map installed in the unit ) and the location were I had stop which brings me to problem, The cross intersections road names are incorrect. Hyw32 is correct and intersecting road was actually 4mi, the garmin legend mag stated it was 5mi. I checked this after the manufactor's update was down loaded results were the same - road name off by one mile, I was on the 4mi and not the 5mi as the map road "name" stated.
The trip distance, time and postion are excellent. Plus the functions are easy to use.
Would trust this with my life if I was lost or extreme weather changing, no, that is way I always bring maps and a couple of compuses with me and one in my emergncy kit.
I would have given this an excellent rating except of the road name issue.
Overall I bringing the garmin legend with me and to test the road name issue.
The unit works well, but the manual was not written with the newbie in mind as a lot of abbreviations and terms are not explained. I had to do some research just to understand some of the owner's manual.
This unit came with some basic maps installed. Garmin wants an ungodly amount of money to get more maps, but if you google 'free topographic maps for garmin' you will do okay.
If I were asked, I would not recommend this unit, but suggest a higher quality one. - ONLY because the visuals are very difficult to see. If price is the only consideration, then this one will do fine. This is my first GPS and I will be keeping it...... but I sure wish I had made a better choice.
Something I didn't do that I wish I would have done was to go check them out first! I bought this unit on the net. It was cheaper than at the store, but the font is so tiny I have to bring reading glasses just to see it. The contrast and light settings just don't bring enough clarity to the screen.
In the future, I will go to the stores and examine the screens and functions first, then shop on the net for the model I have decided to go with.
My Garmin works great, but if I had done my Due Diligence first, I would have popped for a better model. These devices aren't cheap, but I would rather spend a little more than be unsatisfied and have saved a few bucks.
Love to Geocache, Hunt, Hiking, or the outdoors, this is a great starter unit.
The eTrex Legend H GPS Receiver has a very simple ease of use. The directions were simple that our 12 year old was working this unit in a few hours.
With a simple MiniUSB to USB connection to your computer, you can easily download waypoints or geocache coordinates in just seconds. This is one of the simplest units I have used.
One downfall with this unit is that it has a monochrome screen that can be difficult to read depending on lighting conditions and angle.
Receives satellite much faster that its earlier model the Legend. Has a great read of position even in tough conditions.
Having previously owned a Garmin Etrex Legend, (Which was smashed) I decided to
replace it. The Legend H has more capabilities and some new features that I like
but I also learned that I cannot download my mapsource to the GPS, nor can I
upload from the GPS bact to my computer, it seems like this new Legend H does
not have that capability as I learned after trying numerous times I finally
contacted a tech. at Garmin, he explained they aren't designed to hold downloaded maps.
