Strengths:    Rough and reliable GOS unit for all your rides, period! I have been using the 60CSx since it was launched to the market and despite Garmin introduced a new 62 GPS to replace it, the 60CSx is still my choice because of its durability and strength. The battery lasts 8 hours, the display has fairly good definition and more important the 60CSx is sturdy enough to withstand falls, vibration, mud, rain and everything you can add to your rides.

Weaknesses:    Have found none so far. Maybe the handlebar mounting from Garmin is its weakness, I would prefer something similar to the Garmin Edge which can be mounted in the stem and not in the handlebar.

Bottom Line:   
If you want to track all your rides and adventures and then have to take a look at them at home to review or share to others, the 60CSx is it. The most reliable GPS unit I have ever had.

Strengths:    the feature very complete. tracking, marking, navigation. it comes with editing software too, so i'm easily can upload my gpx file to our website. i'm tracking many track with this gpsmap60csx as as seen here at my website http://www.bifzacycling.com/jalur-sepeda.html.

Weaknesses:    its consume battery a lot. for 3-4 hour biking you must prepare a couple of replacement battery. or use more durrable battery

Bottom Line:   
i'm recommend to use garmin gpsmap60csx for your biking. i work 8 years on surveying body of government, this gps actually design for professional job like survey. so, if you use it 'just' for bicycle, all what you need is realy2 there.

Strengths:    I'm really impressed with the signal strength even in the deepest of woods. It's very user friendly and plenty of topo maps that you can buy for different areas. Battery life is pretty good as well.

Weaknesses:    It's a little heavy compared to some other GPS's.

Bottom Line:   
If your GPS is having trouble with signal in the "bush" than this is the GPS for you.

Garmin GPSMAP 60csx vs 76csx

Anyone know what the difference is? I used the comparison tool on Garmins site, and the only difference it shows is that the 60csx is a tad smaller, and the 76csx comes w/ a 128M card vs the 64M card w/ the 60. Even retail is about the same.Read More »
