Garmin GPS 60 for marine use

sv AMULET, Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I have two GPS 60's I bought to replace our old and very well liked 48's that have failing memory batteries. I have had them for 10 months now of full time cruising. We've been cruisng for 12 years now. First the positve. Accurate distance in feet to waypoint, very handy for marking where we drop the anchor and if the anchor has dragged. Handy to know where the anchor is (direction and feet) when the wind dies and a new boat comes in to anchor.

great item, but....

E. Dlugoss "eric2524", Amazon

  • Summary: Great item, used for geochaching and basic nav. nice features, easy to learn and use. Problems I had, gps would not settle down, kept jumping with big variations for distance, from 1.3 miles to 53 miles, recalculating every 2-5sec. wanted me to leave trails to jump on the interstate. The biggest problem is the screen. You cant see a thing, even after adjusting the screen, contrast, brightness, you cant see the screen very well.

  • Excerpt: I used this in Iraq, where we often needed a ten digit grid location for a variety of reasons. This unit will most often find satellites within an acceptable period of time. But the compass needle does not turn as you do unless you are actively moving, which I did not like. In retrospect, I'd have bought a different model from the same company.

Hard to use

Laura Ayers "Chocoholic", Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought this specifically for geocaching. The instructions are insufficient to figure out how to punch in coordinates that you already know. Maybe I need a 13 year old to figure this out, because the 12 year old I know couldn't, and neither could I!

  • Summary: If you want this GPS, you've got to pay to play.

Functional & Practical, but basic

CMD "CMD", Amazon
9 January 2006
  • Summary: The GARMIN 60 GPS is a nice GPS that is "base" no-frills model. I was able to plug it in, load the software, and start entering waypoints within 5 minutes. The plug and play USB port worked without a hitch. The unit itself is very accurate -- although it took me 5 minutes to realize that I didn't have to wait and watch it synch with satellites each time I turned it on.

So-so GPS for outdoor use - unsuitable for cycling

michaeld2, epinions.com
21 August 2004
  • Summary: Decent unit for hiking, but is, at least with the accessories available from Garmin, not suitable for cycling and especially not for mountain biking!
  • Pros: good reception, very nice color screen, 'mapping' function (map display), runs on AA Batteries, rugged
  • Cons: pricey, expensive add-on software, limited availability of topographic maps, bicycle mount insecure, Garmin service
