Comments: "My experience with
the Vista has been nothing short of amazing. As an avid hunter
and sportsman, I thought that I had a pretty good sense of direction.
But after hunting in a totally different area of Alberta, and
being stuck out in the wilderness until after dark one night,
the Vista brought me straight back to camp, and prevented an unwanted,
cold, sleepless night in the woods." -Jim
