Summary: This is a nice unit. I wouldn't buy anything like this from amazon though. Their service is awful. Plus I found cheaper prices on other online and brick and mortar shops. Nice unit but shop around.
Summary: I bought a garmin gps 60csx for several hundred dollars for use in all situations, trails, water, road, and paid $100 in US road map softward so I could also use it in my car to find addresses. The software is very user-unfriendly. I do a search for an address in Florida and it can't find a street that's been there for 30 years. It doesn't even have Miami on its list of cities.
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.
Summary: BUYERS BEWARE...In comparison the unit is better than most, but it gets one star because of the technology and map prices...Garmin should be ashamed...seriously...And 1st time buyers beware that the FREE maps are not routable!!! Come on guys...you should be up-front about these things! Very dissapointed in this unit and the new Oregon. My Android phone/track app is better than both units (and as accurate!), and google maps are heads above the maps...BOTTOM LINE.
Summary: I bought the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx. I turned it on and explored its basic functions. It quickly found my location to within 9 feet. Good so far, you might say. The built-in map is very generic. In order to do anything useful, you need to register your device and download maps from Garmin itself. I proceeded to do so. I created an account under MyGarmin and bought the map: City Navigator North America NT - Lower 49 State. That's when trouble started.
Summary: Embora tenha pago o objeto, qual seja: GPS Garmin, 60Csx, no dia 24/02/2011, ainda não recebi o produto. Estou ficando preocupado. Peço que me ajudem a esclarecer o ocorrido. Qual o site para fazer o acompanhamento do frete ?
Summary: After using this GPS for several years, I have never had a problem with it. I did note that the professional reviewers were still rating this as one of the best units 'out there' and a great buy for the money. Accuracy is excellent as is battery life. Anyone can use this as the directions are well done and the unit is well designed for easy use. A real keeper.
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.
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.
Summary: The maps that this comes with are useless. The maps you have to buy for it are very expensive (can easily cost more then the unit itself). When you buy the maps, you don't really own them. They can only be used in that one GPS. If you buy a new GPS, you have to buy the same maps again (not cheep) for each unit. I had two Garmin GPS units and was expecting to use my basic road maps ($125) on both. I had to pay ($99) to get a code to put them on the second unit.
