If you have a etrex legend hcx (or vista hcx I believe) then just buy this to mount it to your bike. You will also need the bit for your GPS that should have come with it.

Pros:
- Allows mounting to bike
- Comes with a couple of variable thickness rubber tapes for mounting to different size handlebars

Cons:
- GPS doesn't fit as snugly as it could, and rattles a little (even on roads). I don't find this annoying unless things are particularly bumpy. However I intend to pack it with some tape to get rid of this anyway
- Handlebar mount design is basic - will need to unscrew to take off. I would prefer something quick release

- Lots of excellent functionality in it (love the trip computer, so many stats to look at!)

Cons:
- Screen updates for the map could be quicker. When browsing the map the… Read more
