JCacher Posted August 11, 2003 Share Posted August 11, 2003 I am a newbie to the site, to GeoCaching, and to GPS in general. I have been reading and reading and have almost made my choice of receivers to buy. I think I like all the features of the Vista, and really like the fact it tells you current speed and distance. I want to mount it on my mountain bike and kind of use it as an odometer/speedometer. The main draw back is what I've read about the patch antenna in the woods or mountains not getting good reception. I heard that the 76s is fantastic on reception but I have not read where it could be used for my mountain biking plans. Also the 76s is $100 more. My question is, does the patch antenna really have that much of a disadvantage over the helix and is it worth paying $100 more for the 76s. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks........
