Excerpt: The GPSMAP 60C is an all-purpose unit - packed with exciting new features and delivering the kind of color that consumers want in their handheld GPSs. This lightweight, rugged, waterproof unit raises the bar to offer a 256-color, highly reflective display that provides easy viewing in almost any lighting condition.
Excerpt: Garmin GPSMAP 60C Garmin Int’l (913/397-8200; garmin.com ) has come out with two new devices that are of interest to the camping enthusiast, the GPSMAP 60C and 60CS. These two handheld devices with Global Positioning System (GPS) technology are almost identical, save that the 60CS comes with an electronic compass and a barometric altimeter, while the 60C does not. But what sets both of these units apart from other handheld topo GPS devices is their vivid color display.
Conclusion: It's pretty good when the only negative I can come up with is the lack of rubber all around the sides of the unit (for gripping the dash or console of a car). And that shouldn't be a big deal since optional vehicle mounts are available. The bottom line is I was very impressed by the GPSMAP 60C. It does a lot and does it well.
Pros: No rubber on the sides (for gripping)
Cons: Long battery life, External antenna capability, Highly customizable pages
Conclusion: Très bien conçu, le GPSmap 60C est un outil de géolocalisation simple à manipuler, qui se destine avant tout aux randonneurs et aux plaisanciers. Étanche, ce dur à cuire fonctionne pendant une trentaine d’heures en continu.
