Review of Garmin GPS 60

Norman H. Mason, Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Garmin GPS 60 to get the anchor drag alarm, which product advertising and information says it has. The so-called alarm gives one, and only one, barely audible " beep" and that is it. This clearly is not an "anchor drag alarm". An alarm must be continuous until it is shut off. This would never awaken a sleeping individual, and is consequently useless as an "ancor drag alarm". Product advertising and information is very misleading and wrong.

Terrible Experience with Customer Support

  • Summary: I am now afraid of Garmin products. If they fail, expect to pay a hefty price....
  • Pros: Works very well when it works. Fast, good display, nice user interface.
  • Cons: Limited sample size (1 unit) my conclusion is that Garmin has very poor quality control.

Unclear instructions & unavailable service

David M. Poage, Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: I returned this product for a full refund due to unclear instructions and no repsonse from customer service. The instructions provided in the owner's manual on entering bearing and distance to find a new waypoint were unclear. I was unable to reach the Garmin customer service via email (maybe their server was down) or by phone. I tried to phone them 2 or 3 times during business hours and was unsuccessful in reaching a person.

Piece of JUNK!

Mountain Man "Freddo", Amazon
28 February 2007
  • Summary: The maps that come with this unit are wortless. If you want good maps, be prepared to shell out $100. My biggest gripe is that my GPS WILL NOT talk to my computer! That makes it IMPOSSIBLE to load my $100 maps. I tried to connect to both of my PCs at home AND my PC at work. All came up with the same message - USB Device Not Recognized. My friend in Utah has the same problem - and a bad temper. He threw his Garmin against the wall and killed it.

Garmin's not what it use to be

W. Isenberger, Amazon
1 February 2006
  • Summary: I purchased two of these units the first one worked OK. The second one has a problem. In a side by side comparison the signal qualities of the two units vary. I checked there accuracy and tracking with OziExplorer moving map software. The first unit tracks pretty good, but the second units position is off a large percentage of the time and sometimes as much as 400 meters. I sent the faulty unit to Garmin to be repaired.

FATAL FLAW

gseely, epinions.com
12 November 2005
  • Summary: This unit is marketed as a "combo" GPS, but is virtually worthless for street navigation because it lacks a slot for any type of removable media.
  • Pros: Nice display, lots of bells and whistles.
  • Cons: Lacks a slot for an SD card, etc. Doesn't support Bluetooth. Worthless for street navigation.
