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...

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...

There are free TopoMaps on the Internet. Though you can use them on the MapSource program to load to the Garmin GPS, not all of their map features can be displayed on the GPS itself; eg., the TopoMap may have mountain peak names that are not visible on...

Not for boating in areas of tidal action. Garmin states, in their product description, the unit presents tidal data. They FORGET to mention an expensive Blue Chart addition is required, to obtain tidal data. Tidal data is not even mentioned in the...
