    Written on: 21/03/2008 by MartinF (1 review written)

    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.
