Re: O/T GPS receivers for jeepers
I've had a Garmin Etrex Summit for over a year, and I love it.
It does not have the map features as the Vista, however, from what I have seen, the map features are very sketchy. This is mostly due to the small screen size and relatively large pixel size and limited memory.
I do use the electronic compass and altimeter feature quite a bit when I'm hunting and scouting. I also didn't hesitiate to take it 40 miles out in the Pacific (in an open boat), since it is mostly water proof.
I've already destroyed it once (got smashed under my passenger seat bracket), and Garmin replaced it for a flat repair fee ($69).
