Overall good GPS unit. You can use it successfully for road navigation, but is the hills where it shines. Especially when you have Topo maps installed.
Menu system can be confusing until you get used to it, but persevere its worth it. Screen could be bigger but new GPS 60CSx takes care of that. Mapping quality of Topo V2 not as good as Memory Map, but thats not the Legends fault.
I purchased my Garmin eTrex Legend Cx as an upgrade from basic eTrex, what a difference! It came with 23MB micro SD card which handled about 6-9 local maps using Mapsource Topo v2. Friend and I both purchased 2GB SD card to load all Topo maps onto. Now its amazing! The unit now offers full interactive facility for both x-country work (bike/walk etc) and road navigation. Usual rugged Garmin construction and a perfect back-up to maps and compass whilst on the hills. The functionality over original eTrex is well worth the money for upgrade.
