NaviGadget: Garmin announced the eTrex Vista H – a low-cost handheld GPS receiver plus navigator.
eTrex Vista H – like we mentioned – is an entry level unit but that doesn’t mean it’s not useful. It has a high sensitivity receiver that can get satellite fix under even dense tree canopy.
It includes an electronic compass and barometric altimeter as well which can be quite important if you’re outdoors a lot. eTrex Vista H also features USB interface which will give you access to a whopping 24MB of internal memory – allowing you to add detailed topo maps.
Also announced by Garmin was the eTrex Legend H – another low-cost handheld GPS receiver plus navigator. eTrex Legend H also has a high sensitivity receiver (which you can see near the top of the unit – white square box) that can get satellite fix under dense tree canopy or deep canyons.
