Summary: The Garmin GPSMap 60Cx replaced a Garmin 12XL that I lost. I love the ability to upload maps to the Micro SD card and have loaded all of the Topo maps for several states with room to spare on a 4gb card. The 60Cx works extremely well with a very sensitive GPS antenna and fast satellite lock. The unit displays all of the landmark names found on the loaded maps on the map screen. I love the label typing screen for typing in meaningful Waypoint names.
The Garmin GPSmap 60Cx is extremely accurate and easy to navigate.

Summary: This GPS was recommended by a friend of mine who is a proffessional surveyor. It is easy to read and operate and is very accurate. I have owned 2 other GPS units and this one is by far the best.
Summary: A few friends had these and raved about them. Battery life is great. can be plugged in the vehical you are in. The screen is easy to see and read. I can page from screen to screen with my MC gloves on. I have not used it on a hike or with topo maps. It would be nice if it recharged the batteries. Great Bang for your buck.
Summary: I was really looking forward to using this product on my dual sport bike, but found it nearly impossible to set up. Big gaps in information in the manual, online help, and cd. Also expect to spend another 130 for maps as nothing is included and the chip that comes w it won't download the street maps I purchased from Garmin. Oh, and no support on weekends!
Summary: We use this GPS unit on our boat, and are very satisfield with its performance out on the water. We use the default maps which came with the unit. This product works well, but the default maps are not detailed and key roads are missing and are often mislabelled. Using this product to navigate roads would be awful. However, navigation by water is slightly better. Several waterways correct and are in the expected positions on the map.
Summary: Precise, reliable, good battery duration, lacks some non-indispensable function like barometric GPS (only satellite available), magnetic compass (only gps available) altimetric profile. All of them are available in the csx model but price difference justifies buing cx. Good product, fully satisfied.
