60CSx still best all round value

The 60CSx is still the best all round performer for a gps unit. Use in the city, use in your kampong. Excellent for car nav and perfect for trekking and offroad. The case is robust, waterproof and the storage card is :-'

:thumbsup: 60Csx

The 60CSx was my entry equipment into gps. For tracking purposes, it has to win hands down especially when complemented by an external antenna. 2m EPE is the norm. It is easy to use, robust and with practically unlimited amount of tracks that it can collect.

60CSx is not the best navigation gpsr for me as it lacks voice support. That is where my 10X + GMXT + pda come in. Voice support in navigation is crucial for me as I don't want to be looking at the gpsr more than necessary while driving. With the pda in the instrument cowl, I get very clear audio emitted and map is clearly visible as it is in a shaded area. The larger and sharper screen of the pda also show a wider area during navigation. I can also switch navigation to another car easily with the 10X. As for the pda, I carry that all the time as it is also my phone, calendar, contacts etc. Remember a survey done at MSM a couple of months back? BT gpsr + pda had the most number of users.

I use 60csx for my car navigation and tracking. It is an excellent tool.
What I do during the navigation is when the GPS prompts for turning just glance at the screen once (like what you used to do to glance at display panel) whether it is right, straight or left turn... when GPS gives a second promt warning, the turning is nearby hence slow down to take another glance. It gives me excellent guide to my destination. You will love it.
