eTrex Vista HCx

Garmin added removable memory to this pocket handheld, making it easy to pack light and add maps on the go. The eTrex Vista HCx is loaded with top-end popular features including a barometric altimeter, an electronic compass, a sunlight-readable color screen, and advanced GPS routing capabilities.

With its high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, the eTrex Vista HCx locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear -- whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Vista HCx to help you find your way when you need it the most.

The eTrex Vista HCx has a built-in electronic compass that provides bearing information even while you're standing still, and its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use the altimeter to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Adding maps is easier than ever with eTrex Vista HCx's microSD card slot. Just insert a MapSource card with detailed street maps, and eTrex Vista HCx provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about it getting wet.

Included With Purchase: eTrex Vista HCx, basemap, MapSource Trip & Waypoint Manager, USB cable, wrist strap, owner's manual, quick reference guide.
