Reviews Summary for Garmin Etrex Vista
Garmin Etrex Vista Reviews: 1 Average rating: 4.0/5 MSRP: $214.27
Description: The eTrex VistaŽ combines a basemap of North and South America, with a barometric altimeter and electronic compass. The compass provides bearing information while you're standing still and the altimeter determines your precise altitude. The Vista is also designed to provide precise GPS positioning using correction data obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). This product will provide position accuracy to less than three meters when receiving WAAS corrections.

The eTrex Vista also boasts an internal memory capacity of 24 megabytes, which allows it to accept downloaded mapping data from Garmin's MapSourceŽ CD-ROMs, including U.S. Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots. A silver case gives this unit a high-tech look. New to the product design, Garmin will include marine aids to navigation in addition to the basemap. These navigational aids will be pre-loaded into each unit from the factory.

Product is in production.

Good GPS for APRS use  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have been using this GPS since November 2006. I purchased the cable from Glisson Technologies for my D7A and it works ok. The only issue I have is the unit turns off after a while without the APO being turned on. I have to press the button to bring it back on line. Otherwise, good product.
