Good Points
Great functionality as described.

Bad Points
Doesn't work reliably.

General Comments
I had 2 Garmin eTrex Vista GPS units from new, returning the first for the second. Both of them exhibited the same fault - namely they hang / freeze during use. They hang at random points, any time from switch-on to several hours later, so very unpredictable and very unreliable.
They hung/froze regardless of battery type, or whether the Micro SD card was plugged or not.
I updated the software in each of them to the latest - v2.6. No difference.
I can only conclude that there's a bad batch or design problem. Either way, Garmin are not admitting to it.
If it weren't for this, it would be a great unit.
