Do I need to update my Etrex Vista circa 2001?

Recommended Posts

Having just discovered this sport, I dusted off my old Garmin Etrex Vista circa 2001. It was a gift from my father and I have not used it much.


I am wondering if anyone here has a familiarity with this particular unit and whether I need to update it with anything. Maps? Operating system?


I also have a garming Zumo 550 and I have noticed that the Zumo seems to be much better at acquiring and keeping a good lock on the satellites. So, I am wondering if my old Vista is adequate for geocaching purposes. Has the technology advanced a tremendous amount in these past seven years?


Thanks for your help.
