Product Description

Pinpoint Your Location–and Direction
The Vista H’s barometric altimeter pinpoints your precise altitude, and its built-in electronic compass provides bearing information even while you’re standing still.

The Vista H can also receive position corrections from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), which makes its already-accurate positioning data even more reliable. In fact, when you turn on WAAS, you can increase the accuracy of Vista H’s position reporting to within three meters. The device’s high sensitivity means peak performance in any environment, from heavy foliage to deep canyons.

Add More Detail
The Vista H’s basemap contains lakes, rivers, cities, interstates, national and state highways, railroads, coastlines, and landmarks. It also comes preloaded with marine navigation aids. And, with 24 MB of memory, you can add even more map detail with data from Garmin’s entire line of MapSource mapping products (add maps in a snap with the high-speed USB connection).

24 MB is also plenty of room for waypoints, routes and saved tracks. The Vista H’s automatic track log saves up to 10 tracks for retracing your path, and stores 20 routes with up to 125 waypoints per route.

See More Detail
With a high-contrast, backlit 2.4-inch LCD display, and 64 x 128 pixel resolution, you’ll have no problem seeing your maps. The Vista H is compatible with mapping software including topographic maps, Bluechart and inland lake maps. It also includes built-in celestial tables for best times to hunt and fish.

Handheld Performer
The Vista H is engineered for comfortable, efficient handheld use. With its slim form factor, and weighing in at only 5.3 ounces with batteries, the Vista H is ready to go wherever you might take it. The four-way cursor provides smooth, one-hand operation, allowing you to move through menus and screens with ease. The rugged waterproof case (IPX7) gives you added protection against the elements, and a pair of AA batteries gets you up to 17 hours of use.

One-Year Warranty
The Vista H is backed by Garmin’s one-year limited warranty for a little peace of mind while you’re on the trail.
