Sue, if you're still trying to decide, I've had my Legend about two weeks [first GPSr] and so far have had no problems.
I heard warnings about poor reception under light tree cover. Right now I'm inside a room with two windows that have barely open, metal blinds. I just turned on my Legend and had satellite acquisition within 30 seconds. Just for fun, I compared the Legend's coordinates with geocode's Tele Atlas calculator which gives map coordinates for any US street address. The difference in measurements was .0001 degrees [~15 ft?] in latitude and longitude.
My only complaints are that the high resolution and small screen size make text hard to read [you can increase font size], and it's a little hard to read in medium light situations [but OK in the dark with the backlight]. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
