Summary: This is a great product. Picks up satellites quickly. It has so many features to master I am no where near using the full capabilities of this unit. I use the tracking feature mostly as I hike a lot, by myself, on mountain trails. It is very easy to get disoriented once you lose sight of civilization. With the tacking feature I can keep track of what direction I am going and a track back to where I started. Very comforting. I can also keep track of mileage and elevation.
Summary: I am thourghly thrilled with my purchase. This little unit does way more than I hoped for. I am just looking for excuses to do some interesting treasure hunting and exploring with it on my side. Although the map sourse products are quite expensive and I haven't yet purchased any I am anxious to eventually buy and use them.
Summary: I love this GPS, so much in fact it goes everyplace I do. Bought it for geocaching, now I use it to track my workouts or to give me driving directions. It works better than the Navi I have in my car, I have tested both and the handheld unit beats the car everytime.
Summary: I just can't help but research, research, research any "big" purchases I make. I get almost obsessive about it, to tell the truth. I knew nothing about GPS except that I once had one in a rental car I had and loved it. Had they not been over $1000, I would have bought one immediately. So, after many long nights of meticulous research, I ended up selecting the gpsmap 60.
Summary: Unless I can gice an item an excellent rating, I do not take the time to write a review. This GPS receiver from Garmin is worth the effort! I bought the Garmin GPSMAP 60 in October, 2005. It is my first GPS and I did a lot of research to decide what I neeeded and what features and capabilities were important to me. One capability that I decideed was important is good reception. The first unit I got did not live up to my expectations.
Summary: This Garmin Map60 has everything you need for hiking, hunting , Geocaching, road navigation and more. It's easy use and hold. The screen is also easily seen. I'm still learning about but very glad I bought it!
Summary: I have enjoyed this product since the day it was put into my hands. My brother has one and he enjoys it very much and its a great help geting places. I use mine a lot to find geo-treasures and getting from point to point. Its been a great help and would recommend it to anyone who is starting out in geocaching.
Summary: This little unit is awsome. Husband and I started geocaching and after reading lots of reviews and getting suggestions from friends we settled on the Garmin 60. It is great. We have had great luck finding caches since we got the unit. It takes us to within a few feet of the hidden cache. Also it has been rained on and dropped several times. It is kind of like a Timex watch, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
