Summary: for the price this is one of the best GPS units ever made. no frills, just simple ability to give you an accurrate location and track your movements. Memory is a bit limited, and accurracy not as good as you can get now, but if you can still find one of these for under $100 and you just want a...
Summary: This 60 was purchased to replace the more expensive 60CSx that died, with switch problems. This unit, same design and shape, works well. The monochrome display is hard to read, even with the light on full. The 60 uses battery power even when connected to the computer.
Summary: This is a great gps... very easy to use. I didn't want a complicated interface, and this one is about as simple as it gets. The page key navigates you thru the different functions, and you can mark a spot with two keystrokes.
Summary: I bought this mostly for hiking and also for geocaching. For those uses this GPS does all you need. Sure the base map comes with only the larger highways and basically no landmarks aside from large lakes and points marking towns; but if I do a little planning ahead I don't need the map.
Summary: This is a good, but higher level basic GPS. Picks up satelites reasonably well, except in heavier tree cover. Clear and readable display. The unit performs as advertised. What I don't like about it is the 1MB memory limitation.
Summary: We had an eTrex, which my clumsiness sent to the bottom of a creek, never to be seen again. I like this unit a lot more than the eTrex: - the screen is much sharper and easier to read - the device's softwre is more sophisticated; you can store much more information about each waypoint - the USB...
Summary: Nice unit, locks on fast and keeps the signal, it even worked inside my house. The base map that is loaded isn't much and only has some cities. The Garmin web sites indicate a "Marine Data Base" is loaded but I can't find it and we have a number of buoys near our house.
