|The eTrex Vista C is Garmin's exciting, new, pocket-sized handheld GPS that brings color, automatic routing, longer battery life, plus more to our popular-selling eTrex Vista. You won’t miss a thing when you take this colorful, lightweight, easy-to-use handheld out hiking, biking, boating or even geocaching. The eTrex Vista C along with the eTrex Legend C are Garmin's smallest hanheld GPS units, least expensive products to combine a color TFT display and advanced GPS routing capabilities in a waterproof design.
In addition to its distinguishing features — barometric altimeter and electronic compass — outdoor enthusiasts will love the latest improvements made to the eTrex Vista C:
256-color, sunlight-readable display makes it easy to distinguish map details and see where you’re going
Automatic route generation, off-route recalculation, turn-by-turn directions with alert tones, and icon-driven menus for finding points of interest (when combined with Garmin’s optional MapSource® CDs) navigate you safely to your destination
Longer battery life for more hours of outdoor enjoyment
Mini-USB port for fast, convenient download of map data from Garmin’s entire library of optional MapSource CDs using a PC
Of course the eTrex Vista C still includes those popular features that users have come to love and expect in the eTrex product line, such as a compact, lightweight, waterproof design and user-friendly interface. It is WAAS-enabled, and like all eTrex units, the primary controls are oriented on the side of the unit, so the user can conveniently operate it with one hand. Also, an innovative rocker switch is located on the face of the unit that enables the user to input data easily, scroll through menus, or pan the map page.
