60Csx a HUGE disappointment

Cacher, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: I'm a geocacher with 20,000+ finds. I used the 60Csx for years and LOVED it! I touted it as the VERY BEST geocaching GPSr on the planet. But then my 3rd 60Csx failed and I sent it in for exchange. The factory refurbed 60Csx I received was different. The unit was very inaccurate and nothing I did solved the problem. It's accuracy was always only about 50-60 feet.

Beware Garmin Customer Service

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: Downloaded a map of london onto the unit and it wiped out my Topo US 24k West SD chip. On line at Garmin does not warn you of this prior to download. Customer Service said they could not make this up to me and basically they were sorry that their site does not address the issue prior to download. They stated you have to by a blank SD chip to download another map even though the online download states there is room to download additional maps.

What a Huge Disappointment.

R. Proulx "Traveller", Amazon
26 November 2009
  • Summary: All alpinists understand how crucial it is to always know what their elevation is. Unfortunately, keeping an accurate account of elevation is impossible with this GPS due to its altimeter, which cannot be deactivated, according to Garmin Tech Support. You can't just use satellite data to determine elevation like with other GPS units. Instead, the unit takes some sort of average of what the satellites determine and over-mixes it with the altimeter data.

Disappointed with software

Julie Binding, Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas for the intention of it being used on a boat. When he went to download the software from the Garmin site is says that the software has been withdrawn as it is unreliable and no definite date for a replacement is available!! What use is a GPS without maps/software and WHY is the product still being sold with it is not fit for purpose?

An Qualität verloren

Thorsten Roeder, Amazon
5 May 2010
  • Summary: Ich kaufte mir dieses Gerät anhand der vielen guten Bewertungen und weil laut Beschreibung ein SiRFSTAR III GPS-Empfänger eingebaut sein sollte. Als ich die Empfangseigenschaften testete war ich etwas entäuscht. Der Empfang war nicht besser als die der anderen GPS-Geräte die ich schon hatte. Nachdem ich mich dann schlau gemacht hatte erfuhr ich dann das Garmin den guten SiRFSTAR III GPS-Empfänger gar nicht mehr verbaut.

Spontane Satelliten-Amnesie

Ulrich Goettert, Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: Habe das Gerät zwar nicht bei Amazon gekauft, meine Erfahrungen könnten jedoch für den einen oder anderen kaufentscheidend sein. Ich war ca. ein halbes Jahr sehr zufrieden mit dem Gerät, welches ich als Fußgänger, Fahrradfahrer, Motorradfahrer und Autofahrer genutzt habe. Da es mir wichtig war, das Gerät für diese 4 doch recht unterschiedlichen Aktivitäten nutzen zu können, konnte ich mit den je nach Verwendung eher durchschnittlichen Navigationsleistungen gut leben.
