Garmin Etrex vista hcx here. learning curve is long this unit has ALL the bells and whistles but maps are good sat reception is very good, for basic use its easy to learn and learn as you go. I bought mine because it does have all kinds of features some that I may never use however as technology expands I thought that some of this stuff may come in handy in the future, i have had mine for 3 years and I am not far from being a basic to moderate level user but I do link some of the features of the unit that were not available on others when I got mine like a digital compass that works while you walk. that is just one example. I do not go in the woods without mine now, especially during mushroom season that is when I seem to find places where people dump garbage or have bait sites set up for archery season, I just make it a way point and send the lat/long to my local DWCO and they can find the violation without problem.
It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.
