Garmin GPSMap 60Cx Review

 

The other significant upgrade is that the 60Cx no longer utilizes the unit's built in memory for MapSource maps, but loads them to a microSD card instead (the unit comes with a 64 MB card). This means you have unlimited map storage capability, plus you...

Excellent field performance - crippled desktop software

 

This is my third handheld GPS and by far the best. I do a lot of hiking in very mountainous terrain and this faithfully works under the most extreme conditions including low valley under heavy tree & cloud cover. For coverage in Canada, a free topo map...

Quick synchronization - works well under heavy forest cover (west coast BC) - low battery draw with back light off - recent firmware upgrade, the unit will now support large topo maps (4GB) - easy navigation menus - good email technical support

Crippled desktop software. The print function has been killed for maps installed from their data CDs. If you purchased your maps on a microSD card, you cannot even view them on your computer.Nor can you backup the microSD card

Great unit but will drain wallet with upgrades.

 

I enjoy the unit quite a bit and will come in quite handy hunting in the deep forest. I was dismayed that the only roads, etc. on the unit were I-5. It became so frustrating and nonfunctional as a everyday driving GPS that I was forced to cough up $89...

Works well with my PC, rugged/ waterproof (up to 30min.) will provide extra security in deep forest hunting. Lots and lots of options. Computer suave dream toy(sort of)

No Maps of US, 1 GB Memory card will have to be replaced with more memory, Cheapest Garmin Map for step-by-step, functionality costs at least $89.95. Garmin should have provided either a great map or high end memory card

Great for Geocaching

 

I use this gps all the time for geocaching and road trips. I like to use it even when I know where I am going just so I have a better idea of my ETA.

Autorouting, Holds Lock in Cover, Color screen is easy to read in sunlight

A bigger memory card would be useful for road trips

rugged

 

I have it wired to my motorcycle battery and just leave the AA batteries out. Works great :) very happy

Been working for three years now. Dropped it in a creek once, while it was on. I can rinse it off in the kitchen sink with the spray nozzle. I mount it to my motorcycle handlebars and take it offroad on the bumpiest trails around

Extreme bumps rattle the batteries loose. These are bumps from being on my motorcycle, not from hiking

Tough as nails

 

I purchased this GPS with the hope that the technology had improved in the last 5 years. Boy has it. Reception is great with this device, even in dense cover. I use it primarily for hunting, to get me back to the truck/boat or back to the same tree...

Accurate,Reliable Reception,Waterproof

Product Specifications

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. Considered the mainstay among serious outdoor enthusiasts, the GPSMAP 60Cx offers a large color TFT display and turn-by-turn routing capability. The unit comes with a blank 64 MB microSD card.
