Garmin eTrex Legend H Handheld GPS: REVIEW

Our Rating

Latest Price from Amazon
Is this the best price?
Rated4Stars Top Pick


We first reviewed the Garmin eTrex Legend GPS in 2005 and were delighted to see that this classic workhorse is now available in an economic bundle that includes a PC cable, car power adapter, and Garmin MapSource U.S. Topo Map CD-ROM. Though it lacks some of the features we’ve come to expect in newer handhelds, such as a color screen or next-generation GPS chipset, the eTrex Legend remains a capable and proven workhorse in the Garmin family, and a beloved one at that (we still use ours), still used by many for a wide range of outdoor activities, including geocaching, despite its lack of any special geocaching features.

Tom Tom ONE 3rd Edition – REVIEW

  Entry-level never looked so good in the vehicle GPS market. TomTom significantly improved upon its already solid-performing and crowd-pleasing ONE (2nd Edition), yet has priced the new TomTom ONE 3rd Edition only slightly higher than its predecessor.
