    I have the old version of the Legend.
    No complaints.
    300 finds on the old yellow, 290+ on the Legend.
    I have a Geocaching problem...

    I have the Legend HCx and combined with my PDA I have everything I need. The Legend is very quick to lock on and will hold the signal well under all conditions.
    Get one and enjoy :socool:

    Very pleased with mine, new to GC'ing and have used it almost daily now for 2 weeks. Paid extra for the Garmin UK road maps which I find useful too.

    Have just joined today !! have been looking on Amazon for a GPs and have more or less decided on the Etrex HCX - so you have asked my question for me !! Can you down load info from the Geocaching site locations on to an SD card and load ?? Am a complete novice - bought a Navigon Satnav recently as it said it would work on Map co-ordinates but it does not seem to ?? Hence the GPS enquiry

    Hi,
    There's a bit about how I use my eTrex on "Bit about how I load my Garmin Vista HCx".
    Hope it's of use.

    PS. might wanna look at "Garmin Rubber Problem" as well.

    Not sure if there's an org, but there's certainly a lot of active cachers around here. Try looking for event caches, that's usually a good place to get to know the faces behind the log names you see.
