The GPSMAP 60CSx is a refreshing upgrade of the GPSMAP 60CS, one of our most popular models for outdoor and marine use. This unit features a removable microSD card for detailed mapping memory and a waterproof, rugged housing. The microSD card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment. Users can load map data and transfer routes and waypoints through the unit's fast USB connection.
In addition, this unit features a new, highly sensitive GPS receiver that acquires satellites faster and lets users track their location in challenging conditions, such as heavy foliage or deep canyons. The GPSMAP 60CSx also incorporates a barometric altimeter for extremely accurate elevation data and an electronic compass that displays an accurate heading while standing still.
Considered the mainstay among serious outdoor enthusiasts, the GPSMAP 60CSx and GPSMAP 60Cx offer a large color TFT display and turn-by-turn routing capability. Each unit comes with a blank 64 MB microSD card. Owners of these new x-series handhelds can also purchase new microSD cards that are pre-loaded with MapSource Topo and inland lake maps, BlueChart marine cartography, and City Navigator street maps.
The venerable Garmin 60CS just got a whole lot better. The 7.5-ounce GPSMap 60CSx now features an insanely accurate, high-sensitivity GPS receiver by SiRF that tracks your position even in tree cover and canyons. Plus, you get a bright, sunlight-readable color TFT display and an included a 64 MB microSD card for storage of optional map detail. Add all that to the 60CSx's integrated barometric altimeter and electronic compass, and you've got a unit that is ready to take you anywhere on land or sea.
The device features the powerful SiRF GPS navigation chip for supreme accuracy in all conditions. You also get an electronic compass and a barometric altimeter.

The 60CSx's 2.6-inch, 256-color TFT color display is designed to present mapping and trip information clearly and accurately in any lighting conditions. Plus, the case is lightweight, rugged, and water resistant to IEC 60529 IPX7 standards (can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes). When using two AA alkaline batteries, you'll get up to 20 hours of battery life from the unit. The unit's barometric altimeter system features automatic pressure trend recording while providing current elevation, ascent/descent rate, minimum/maximum elevation, total ascent and descent, and average and maximum ascent and descent rate. Meanwhile, the electronic compass allows you to get accurate headings while standing still.
Another key feature of the 60CSx is the 10,000 point automatic track log; 20 saved tracks (500 points each) let you retrace your path in both directions. There's also a large-numbers option for easy viewing, as well as a dual-position display mode.
The 60CSx's trip computer provides odometer, stopped time, moving average, overall average, total time, max speed, and more. Meanwhile, a fast processor allows the 60CSx to provide quick auto-routing, turn-by-turn directions, and audio alerts when you use the optional MapSource software, which can be stored on the unit's included 64 MB microSD card. Downloading information is quick with the USB or serial port interfaces. Using the dedicated serial port, the 60Cx can share navigation instructions with repeaters, plotters, and autopilots. The four-position rocker pad and dedicated high-use buttons make navigating through the unit's features easy, even when your fingers are cold or wet.
Finally, the GPSMap 60CSx is packed with some extra fun features. An integrated outdoor calendar provides ideal hunting and fishing times, plus moon rise/set/location information. There is a dedicated geocaching mode for those of you into the hot GPS community treasure hunt game. Finally, there are indoor/outdoor GPS games to help you and your friends enjoy the outdoors.
If you like the features of the 60CSx, but don't need an electronic compass and a barometric altimeter, check out the Garmin 60Cx.

Top Customer Reviews
As a tour guide I use mine in Yellowstone Park everyday. Customers are always interested in asking what the elevation is, distance we have hiked, etc..... It is also helpful to me personally when I preview a trail and need to write a description for clients. MOST trails in Yellowstone Park have the wrong distances posted at the trailheads. This is because over the years the trails have had to be re-routed for various reasons; erosion control, mud slides, avalanches, etc.... but the park service has never spent the money to replace the expensive metal trailhead signs that were installed in the early 1960's.
When the other GPS's shut down due to lack of signals in deep valleys, this one just keeps powering on! If you are going to be hiking in mountains with deep valleys this is the GPS you need.
I highly recommend purchasing a scratch cover for the screen.
One drawback for me personally is, Garmin is not compatible with Apple computers, so I had to purchase a memory map card with Yellowstone Park installed. If I visited another park like Grand Canyon National Park and wanted to use this GPS unit, I would have to purchase a new map card with that park installed. If you own and use a standard PC computer you can download these maps off of the internet and install them into the GPS yourself.
I personally do not Geo cache, but when I first purchased this GPS unit I did drive into Bozeman and found several just as a way to learn how to use my unit.
The map card I installed does include other areas outside of Yellowstone Park, like Bozeman, Montana where I live and includes the street names, etc... however, you can not type in an address and have the GPS unit direct you to that address like you can with a vehicle GPS unit. Hand held GPS units are used for hiking, etc..... It's like the difference between a standard screw driver and a Phillips screwdriver. They are both screwdrivers but used for different types of screws. The same for handheld GPS units vs vehicle GPS units.
-It speedily acquires satellites
-Reception always has been good even under forest tree canopies
-Takes a microSD card for memory expansion
-Accuracy is pretty good within 20 feet. Can't drop bombs with it, but you'll find your way around.
-It's easy to overlay recorded tracks onto a topo map on a PC and create a detailed and printable route record
-Base maps that come with the unit are AWFUL and lack any detail whatsoever.
-Additional topo maps are horribly expensive ($75 +/-)
-It's not intuitive. In fact, for months I always carried the instruction manual with me when I took the unit out in the field. There is a learning curve.
I don't use this for navigating in a car or for geocaching; I use it exclusively for finding my way through the woods here where there are no trails and for cross-boundary wildlife management - for this it's an excellent GPS. I've used different units before buying this one, and the others weren't nearly as good.
Overall, it's well worth it even if you do get raked for the topo maps.
The 60CSx doesn.t use a excessive number of batteries, Batteries generally last longer than what the manual said to expect.
