Re: eTrex Vista - any good

A friend has the eTrex Vista and it seems feature packed up against all but the best units. I realize it is small but my needs are for stop when lost nav not look down on the fly nav. What are your thoughts?
Compare it price-wise to the eMap. Some day you may want to load some maps to it and the eTrex Vista doesn't take data cards. Internal memory on Garmin units tops out at 19 Mb on the GPS V - may be enough for some, but if you are on the road for a while, 19 Mb isn't enough unless you tote a laptop along to load up maps as necessary.
