4.0 out of 5 stars Vista HCx and Maps, 9 Mar 2009
Excellent GPS with greatly improved sensitivity in sheltered e.g.woodland, areas.

The included map is really only major highways and of very little use for walkers.

Walking routes can be prepared on a computer, based on what ever map is available, but if the map is not a Garmin product only the route, and not the map details, can be transferred to the the GPS.

The facility to add maps is welcome but I find the Garmin policy of producing a GPS that only works with Garmin products (as expensive as the others)to be restrictive.
