I don't have that unit nor do I have any knowledge of it. But I am interested why you chose to ask about that one?

I use a Magellan SportTrak Pro, but only because it was the best deal for me at the time. There are many treads discussing (arguing) the finer points of each unit.

You'll get about as many different opinions as there are units. The cheif debate is between Magellan and Garmin. In reality, both companies make excellent units and each brand has its advantages and disadvangates.


Some people will swear by their Magellan and others will swear at it. Same for Garmin. You'll also find people who own both and prefer one, or the other.


This being said, I really like my eTrex Vista. I started with the Legend, but eventually upgraded because I wanted more memory. I like the fact that it's compact and can fit in my pants pocket. Because of that, I take it pretty much everywhere and even use it to mark my car in the mall parking lot. The new Gecko is even smaller, but doesn't have mapping (similar to the yellow eTrex in that respect).


If you don't do a lot of travelling, the Legend might be the better value. It's now less than $200 at Amazon.com, plus there is a $50 rebate from Garmin, which brings the cost of this fine unit below $150. I found the 8 meg of memory to hold a lot of topo maps.

Hello DuhNPookinz,


Always glad to see another 'Zonie here. I have not used the Vista, but can vouch for the Legend as did a prior poster. It has served me well and has all the features I need.


Good luck in the adventures ahead!
