Our Comment

Like all the other eTrex models, the brightly coloured eTrex Legend HCx is both robust and water resistent.  In comparison with the original eTrex Legend Cx, the HCx offers a high sensivity GPS receiver, a bright colour sunlight readable display, a microSD card slot, long battery life and the ability to switch to automotive mode for turn-by-turn routing on roads.
