Summary: I have used Garmin GPS units for many years and am impressed with the improved features of the 60CS model. It is as accurate - within 10 ft - as advertised. The USB port is especially handy for connecting the unit to my laptop and desktop to upload and download data points.
Summary: I have several GPS receivers, and I recommend this unit above all. If what you want is a reliable gps unit, count on the GPSMap 60CS. I have been in bad weather, under heavy rain and this unit always delivered. I like this unit for its colorful screen, easy to read and many menus.
Summary: I use my GPS mainly for Geocaching. My original (Etrex Vista) was a fine gps, but I wanted the external antenna, the extended battery life, and the bigger, color screen. I have not been disappointed. This GPS is more accurate than my Vista; the Geocaching mode helps keep track of my finds.
Summary: I purchased my first GPS unit and I am very satisfied. I read many reviews, and researched about a half a dozen candidates before I settled in on the GPSMAP CS. When I bought it, I knew that it was being replaced with a more expensive unit that had a removable SD chip, but I did not need that...
Summary: I purchased the Garmin GPSMap 60CS a month ago for use on my business trips between California and Arizona and have found it to be a great tool. I also started using it to Geocache as I had some down time while in Arizona.
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: I have used this device now for 10 years (yes its been that long since I bought it). It is rock solid for hiking and has been with me to 5 continents. Although by modern standards its memory capacity is lacking and browsing a map is a bit slow. It has never failed me.
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!!!
