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...

An overpriced upgrade

 

The GPSmap 60CSx has all the hallmarks of a decent handheld GPS device. However, it still offers too little at too high a price.

Colour screen, expandable memory, barometric altimeter, Highway mode is useful

Expensive, slow acquisition times, somewhat confusing button placement

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

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.
