Legend Cx Basemap

The basemap.

This GPS, one the the eTrex series of Garmin units, is a small but sturdy GPS, with a waterproof casing and color screen with adjustable backlight. The battery case is secured with a latch attached to a d-ring. Inside the case, along with the batteries, is a 64 MB microSD card for storing topographic maps and other data. On this unit, topographic maps are useful, for the basemap is mundane and shows no terrain data. The unit is compatible with Mapsource® topo maps.
