Excerpt: It happened me in the past very often I want to visit a town or I want to make a tour with my bicycle and I don’t find the way. Two weeks ago I found the sollution : I bought a navigator system : the Garmin Gpsmap 60C. It …
Summary: I've used this GPS for everything from hiking, backpacking, thousands of hours of back country SAR missions, mountain biking and general trail mapping. It has never failed me. Batteries last quite awhile when setup properly. Buy a case to protect the screen.
Summary: bought this for use on my motorcycle and really like it. case is rugged and battery life is excellent. the display is reflective and VERY easy to read in all but dark conditions and the back lighting is bright. satellite acquisition is fast and readings are accurate.
Summary: i really like this unit but I have no idea on how to download maps to it or update it. I constantly am using it but like I said I have no main maps of any citys. I only have major high ways and well that is the problem.
Summary: This is probably my 4th handheld GPS. I also own a bluetooth GPS for the PC. I use the GARMIN in my car sometimes, but mainly on my kayak trips. Before this I had a Magellan Sportrak color. It was stolen and replaced with this unit after I tried a friend's Garmin.
Summary: This Garmin hand-held gps unit has gotten me safely home countless times. I get lost a lot when I'm driving around and this GPS unit recalculates the directions for you if it senses that you have gone off course along the way.
Summary: Garmin has always been #1 in the GPS market. The other guys, have one or two models and pack them with features like "picture viewing", that's right now how is that needed in a GPS? Are you going to the photomat or something? This unit is excellent. I've used it hiking and riding my ATV.
