I just bought my first color gps, a Legend C.

I really like it. I had a reg. Legend for about a year.

Anyone else using the Legend C?

I love my Legend C. I went from a eTrex Venture to a GPSMAP 76S to the Legend C.

The only problem is that I'd like to be able to load more maps at one time... but I want a small GPSr and I like the interface on the eTrex series so the Legend C is the fit for me.

There was also new software for it released within the last month:

I just got the Vista C, which is very similar. I took advantage of the $50 rebate Garmin has running right now. I downloaded maps to it last night. I was surprised how fast the Twin Cities downloaded to it (like 2.5 minutes). I was able to use the same MapSouce install that I use for my Garmin iQue M5. It just detected the Vista C, and unlocked the maps for it too. It used about 13 MB of the 24 MB it has.

Which mapset did you install? MetroGuide, CitySelect, Topo?

City select North America v6. I assumed that was the same thing that shipped with the Vista C. The packaging looked the same.
