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.

1. When I was debating on which GPS unit to buy, I had reservations on the Garmin 60CSX due to some of the reviews mentioning the learning curve navigating through the screens and setups. It came with a nice, thick manual that, once I read it, I understood the unit pretty well. Once I played with it for a little bit, I had it down pat. It's not that difficult of a unit to understand. Just read the manual.
2. The c.d. that comes with it is the 'Trip and Waypoint Manager' software. The quick start guide that comes with the Garmin mentions installing the software before hooking the Garmin to the computer for the first time as there are necessary drivers that must be installed from the disc. The disc will only install on the 'C' drive and cannot be changed. My computer has a different letter designating my hard drive and couldn't install it. After notifying Garmin's support, they e-mailed me back two days later and said the software is old and the drive letter can't be changed. This turned out to be no big deal as I was able to go to Garmin's site and download the drivers. They also gave me a link to a program called 'BaseCamp' which it their new version of the 'Trip and Waypoint Manager'. It turned out to be no big deal but is something to be aware of.
Lastly, my main purpose for this purchase is for Geocaching. The Garmin 60CSX is a full blown, very powerful and accurate GPS unit for any situation involving GPS navigation necessities, but does have a nice dedicated program for geocaching where I'm able to do paperless geocaching. The caches can be uploaded to it from 'Basecamp' or geocaching.com. or manually inserted. I put a few hundred caches on it and am set for quite a while.
To sum it up, I love this unit and for the price, I give it my highest recommendation as I don't think you can find a more powerful, feature-rich GPS unit.
Other notes: Know what you are buying! Don't be shocked that it doesn't come pre-loaded with City Navigator like most car based units. Know that you must use Garmin Topo software if you want to load (and of course view) topo maps on your gps. Know that the barometric altimeter is affected by pressure, therefore having the car windows up/down or blower running will affect it's reading. Know that the electronic compass is affected by metallic and magnetic objects at close range. But hey! When moving, the unit uses (by default) the gps coordinates to track heading and this is a handheld/outdoor type use of product so when standing still in the woods trying to find direction at least you CAN USE the compass WITHOUT having to walk around trying to get the compass to update. This is really nice for geocaching as well.
Long story slightly short: I am quite pleased and highly recommend this unit for those who want a handheld gps. Now if only Garmin would put out some top notch US topo software..........ahhh, gps life would be good. I know National Geographic, Maptech and others have great USGS based software but of course you can't upload these maps and even if you could they probably wouldn't be of great use on a 2 inch screen. For those who want to download waypoints and track logs and then view/share/map out/print your hikes/bikes and whatnot, get one of these 3rd party options, they are great, just not what I want.
Bottom line: If this is in your price range then stop fooling around and just go buy it! It's great!
