has paid off big time

  • Summary: I've had the Garmin 60CS for 4 months now. I use it with a mounting bracket on my Bike and also use it in my car. I will be getting the car kit and additional map software for it when I go RVing with the in-laws this summer. My job is in sports, fitness, and recreation and I find a lot of uses for this device.

Nice unit, but check out the map60 cs-x

  • Summary: I just received my map 60cs-x recentlly from Amazon, I don't know why they say its not released yet. It's been available since December 2005. Anyway, I really like my Map60cs and its 56 mb of internal memory, but that is now my daughter's unit. The Map 60cs-x comes with 64 mb of trans-flash memory which is "semi"-removable. Garmin intends to sell trans-flash cards w/ pre loaded maps, but they are as yet un-available.

Overall it is much more than what I was expecting

  • Summary: The Garmin 60cs is a very great piece of technology. I got my unit about a week ago and have slowly been learning its functions. To use the general gps functions are pretty self-explanatory, especially if you have had any previous gps experience. Pros: * The color screen is very easy to see in daylight and looks sharp. * The screens load relatively quickly, especially compared to the old garmin etrex vista that I used in the past.

Garmin GPSMAP 60CS - So far so good!

Bill, Amazon
26 August 2005
  • Summary: I have bought and used many many Garmin GPS products (XL12,Rhino, Legend, Vista). This one is suppose to do it all except for radio communications! I do not like the size, unless it means the antenna is more responsive, but I do like the USB interface, exterior antenna port, note fields for waypoints and color screen. I haven't used it enough to know about the battery life but I hope it is at least like the Vista. On the downside, this is the second unit I've tried.

Excellent All-Purpose Receiver

Stephen W. Hinch "hiker and author", Amazon
17 January 2005
  • Summary: Garmin has come pretty close to the ideal all-purpose GPS receiver with the GPSMap 60CS. It is a great receiver for outdoor use AND a great receiver for highway navigation, with only a few compromises in either area. For outdoor use, the 60CS has just about everything you would want. It can store 1000 waypoints, has a 10,000 point tracklog, and can store 20 tracks (compressed to 500 points each). It also has a dedicated geocaching mode.

Almost there

P. Keezer "paula_ke", Amazon

  • Summary: GPSMAP 60cs is a nice unit but if you can wait for their next generation handheld, you should. I recently did a 2000 mile motorcycle trip along with several back country hiking excursions and for the normal kinds of things you want a gps to do, (where am I, how do I get there, what direction am I going) the 60CS was great! With CitySelect maps I could see all the roads, even the dirt roads in obscure places like the south western Oregon National forests.

Fun for trips

zoomtown, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first GPS device. My main use is tracking my progress on longer bike rides. The 60CS has a nice "track" feature, which records your journey. When used along with the odometer, you can get some nifty data on how fast you were going, time spent stopped, etc. The track data can then be downloaded onto your computer and viewed with the map software provided with the device. The altitude profile view of your track is very cool.

gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

8 October 2012
  • Summary: Ich suchte schon länger ein Navi mit dem ich meine Rad- und Wandertouren nachvollziehen kann und das mir bei der Orientierung im Wald hilft. Diese Erwartung wird weitgehend erfüllt. Aufgrund des beschränkten inneren Speichers passen Topokarten leider nur begrenzt auf das Gerät. Wer da Wert auf mehr legt sollte sich ein Gerät mit SD Speicherkarteneinschub zulegen. Das Kostet dann natürlich auch ca. einen 100er mehr.
