Summary: This unit is exactly what I needed. It is the same make and model that I have used for a number of years, using the companion Garmin MapSource software to load radial routes and waypoints for the purpose of making precision (broadcast) radio station signal measurements.
Summary: Great unit that would have gotten 5 stars had my USB connection not get ripped out of the unit after finishing a sync once. Used the included cable, and the fit was... tight. Went to unplug the USB, and the entire USB connection came with the cable, ripping it off the device's PCB.
Summary: I bought this GPS unit to use for hiking. It has worked wonderfully. I use it to mark my start point as a safety measure as well as record distance, show my hiking speed, direction, and the time hiked. It also gives a nice profile view of your altitude as you hike along.
Summary: Garmin has a very hard-to-beat product with the GPSMAP 60CS. I've owned 13 different GPS units from Garmin and Magellen and this one is the best I've had. This handheld, waterproof unit does all of the things found in the much more expensive units such as autorouting, providing the user with audible...
Summary: GPSMAP 60cs is a nice unit but if you can wait for their next generation handheld, you should.

Summary: I upgraded to the 60CS after my M4 cracked the screen on my Etrex while out marking UXO (unexploded ordnance). This is a great little GPS that is easy to use and highly accurate. A few of us had and used them all over Iraq while escorting convoys and running patrols.
Summary: This GPS is great. A color screen is a must and we have need no problems viewing the screening in direct sunlight. This unit is very durable too with a sporty look. The best part you can take it everywhere (hiking, biking,walking, running, even on trips). Money Well Spent!!!
