    Comments about Garmin Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Portable Navigator:

    I had a Magellan eXplorist and had lots of problems, including customer service. I decided to get the Garmin 60csx and have never had a problem since. It is very reliable and rugged. I have considered buying a second one, just in case ( I love it that much!). I tend to use it weekly, especially since I have been hunting in the backcountry a lot more this year. The only thing I have a problem with is that I use a Mac and Garmin software only works with Pc computers.

    Comments about Garmin Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Portable Navigator:

    This unit is simple to use and serves as a great backup; even for those who are already good with directions. I have never lost reception; and the addition of a "state specific" topo card makes this the ultimate hunting companion.

    Comments about Garmin Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx Portable Navigator:

    This is my first GPS receiver. It's easy to start using with the basic setup but there are plenty of features to explore and put to use after using the unit for a while. The base map is adequate but I'm looking to add the topo maps very soon for more detail.
