The Garmin 60csx is the best for geocaching

By 

from Obion, TN

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

This is my second GPS and it is by far the best for geocaching. It is water proof, shock proof and easy to use. I have no problems even when under trees. I like that is uses regular AA batteries also.  I would highly recommend  this.

Great for caching under tree cover

By 

from Gainesville, FL

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

Our family bought the Garmin 60CSX for geocaching after reviewing many brands and different types of handheld GPS systems. We fell in love with it immediately. It rarely lost the signal under tree cover and was easy to use. It is comfortable in your hands and fits easily into a cargo pocket. Our machine did have the compass which we used a few times and the altimeter that we really did not have a use for here in Florida. The Garmin customer service personnel are wonderful also. The Garmin 60CSX we bought had a malfunction, after one conversation with the customer sevice they sent us new machine which worked perfectly. We used our garmin primarily for geocaching and hiking. We lost our 60CSX while on a trip and did not have the money to replace it, so we bought a cheaper Garmin GPS and miss the features of the 60CSX. Within the next year we will be buying another 60CSX or possibly one of the newer Garmin GPS units such as the Colorado. We highly recommend the Garmin 60CSX.

Great for hiking and geocaching

By 

from Stanford, CA

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

We got the Garmin GPS60CX about two months ago after having used an old Etrex for a while. I had some good experience with some of the older models of the GPS60, and had read good reviews about the new model, so we got it. We use it for geocaching and hiking, and it serves us very well for both. It takes very little time to start up, and often gets a satellite lock very fast. The antenna is much better than that of our old Etrex, and we can often keep it in a pocket when we go hiking without losing lock, because the antenna is more or less omnidirectional and has a high gain. The use interface has some nice features, including a physical "mark" button, so you don't have to navigate any menus to mark waypoints (nice when hiking), and a "find" button, which gives quick access to geocaches. The GPS unit also distinguishes between geocaches and other waypoints, and lets you record your geocache finds.

Awesome portable gps

By 

from San Ramon, CA

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

I have the Garmin 60Cx gps unit without the compass or the altimeter. I had these features in an eTrex and didn't think they were worth the extra cash. You already get direction when you are moving as well as elevation data from the satellites. Why bother having these extra units in your gps? This is an awesome gps. It is very portable, it will fit in your jeans pocket if you want. The coolest thing is that it takes a microSD memory card which you can store all your maps on. A 2 gig card will store all of North America with room to spare. Old Garmin users will remember how little memory the older units used to have. These new memory card units are a godsend! This unit also has the new SirfStar gps engine. This thing works way better than the old units, I can get a 5 sat signal from inside my house even. Outdoors it usually picks up 10-12 sats. Now if they could only make them work inside tunnels...

Good multi-purpose handheld GPSr

By 

from Bedford, TX

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

I've had a few GPS receivers, and this is the best one yet for my purposes. Yes, there are better units dedicated to driving, and better units dedicated to "backcountry" use, but this is an excellent combination. I wanted a GPSr that I could use while driving, but that I could also carry in the field while geocaching or hiking. Another requirement I had when shopping was that the unit had to keep track of where I had been. That is something that very few (if any) of the dedicated vehicle units offer. Add in the built-in support for geocache tracking, and this was just about a perfect unit for me. I would suggest buying the add-on Automotive package, which includes a vehicle mount, DC charging cable, and MapSource software - essential if you want to use this in a car.

Best outdoors GPS there is

By 

from Duluth, GA

Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator:

I've had this GPS unit for about three years now and am just a big fan.  I can't imagine hiking or backpacking without it.   First it has excellent satellite reception...even deep in the woods, you won't lose your lock...only happened to me a couple of times in deep canyons.  

The menu system is fairly intuitive..probably a bit of a learning curve but not bad and fun to explore the different tools and functions.  It is also very customizable with what screens are displayed as you "Page" through them...this turns out to be a great practical feature for daily use.

It will of course tell you where you are, but also creates "tracks' that you can download later in the Garmin MapSource software...you can view an elevation profile or view your hike in google earth...just fly around it and see it from different angles...or your bike ride or drive or whatever.

The only glitch that I know some of these units have is that the trip odometer can display overly low mileage and overly high stopped time.  This is annoying but you can always look at the track data later for a realistic estimate.  And odd too that it only has this glitch in certain areas of the country and only if you are moving slowly (not on a bike or car).

Battery life is excellent and a pair of Nimh recharagables will last all day or even a couple of ays.

It also features a baromeric altimeter and it's great to know how much total ascent/elevatin gain you have done.   There are newer Garmin units like the Colorado and Oregon and the 62st but this one is still the best value for the money, in my opinion
