Garmin International is part of a company that makes navigation equipment for the aviation and marine markets, as well as the consumer market. In fact, their first GPS handhelds supported Coalition forces in the Gulf War. So we think it's fair to say...

The Garmin GPSMap 60CSx handheld GPS arrived for review here at the old GPS Lodge and we're happy to take it on a few outings to test it. The Garmin 60 CSx is the top of the line handheld GPS out of the Garmin shop, and recently won the Gear of the...

Garmin GPSMap 60CSx

 

GPSMAP 60CSx is the product to get if you want the best and are afraid of our top-ranked product, which has a well-documented reputation for a steep learning curve. As mentioned, GPSMAP 60CSx is also a little higher on the price scale. But this...

Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx

 

No matter where you are, you will never need to ask for directions again.

Do you like GPS navigation devices or do you still use an atlas? Despite being overshadowed by the explosive popularity of aftermarket GPS navigation products in the automotive sector, handheld units such as the the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx are still...

Great for Geocaching, Classroom use

 

Gave 15 of these to teachers for recording their school's science research locations. Works for all their needs and more. We did have minor injuries when multiple people play gecko smack at once.

Sturdy, powerful, miniSD

Careful with the Geckosmack game in groups

Great GPS: Ignore the Petty Complaints!

 

Lots of people are expecting this GPS to be the perfect GPS. I really like it so far and I don't have any complaints. Most of the complaints you'll see are people comparing the features of this GPS to the 60CS. The issues most people are complaining...

Very quickly locks satellite signals ; The SIRF receiver technology is great ; Display can easily be read ; Color display is very nice ; Well laid out buttons ; Auto-routing is very impressive

Audible alerts could be a touch louder ; Turn notification could come a bit sooner ; Lat/Lon data fields appear to be missing though manual says they should be available

Best handheld GPS hands down.

 

This is the best handheld...period. I have owned a Magellan Triton 300 (still own for a backup), Delorme PN-40, and now the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSX. I actually returned the Delorme for a refund, awful GPS. The 60CSX has faster satellite acquisition of the...

Everything

None at all

The best GPS produced, ever!

 

The first thing you will discover about this incredible GPS, is that you can get coverage inside your house. That is how great the antenna is. I like having the microSD card slot as I load different mapped areas on each card. The mapping software is...

It's rugged, the screen is easily read in any light condition. Waterproof, fits in shirt or jacket pocket, the best reception I have seen on any GPS

None that comes to mind

Product Specifications

The GPSMAP 60CSx is a refreshing upgrade of the GPSMAP 60CS, one of the most popular Garmin's models for outdoor and marine use. This unit features a removable microSD card for detailed mapping memory and a waterproof, rugged housing. The microSD card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment. Users can load map data and transfer routes and waypoints through the unit's fast USB connection. In addition, this unit features a new, highly sensitive GPS receiver that acquires satellites faster and lets users track their location in challenging conditions, such as heavy foliage or deep canyons. The GPSMAP 60CSx also incorporates a barometric altimeter for extremely accurate elevation data and an electronic compass that displays an accurate heading while standing still. Considered the mainstay among serious outdoor enthusiasts, the GPSMAP 60CSx offers a large color TFT display and turn-by-turn routing capability. The unit comes with a blank 64 MB microSD card.
