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.

DIDN'T GET IT

Andrew Gurry, Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I would love to have given this a full review but having waited a month it still hasn't turned up. The bill has though! After several emails to Amazon I had to order a different one as they would not send a replacement or cancel the order in time for me to use it on my holiday. I'm not impressed. Added to that Amazon say they have refunded my money but it hasn't reached my credit card so I'll end up paying interest on it.

A dissapointment

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 October 2008
  • Summary: As an avid traveler, I feel you can't get anywere without a good GPS system. This horrific monstrosity made my life a living hell for 3 days, I ended up lost in the North of England, with only my wits on me. The GPS map itself is terribly out of date, and to be frank I would have had better luck with the 1970's AA map.

Poor performance

Richard, Amazon
9 July 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the unit a year ago and found it to be unreliable even in open land without trees around. It's so bad that I no longer bother to use it. It frequently reports weak satellite signals. When it does so it brings up a messsage that you have to clear by pressing ENTER before it will restart to track. This is very difficult if you have both hands occupied riding a horse or cycle. When it works it gives a good result. Not at all recommended.
