I prefer trax over routes..routes will give you prompts to read and the 60csx screen is too small for my eyes to try and focus on..trax will show a colored track or line that you follow and if you deviate from the line, you can see it and make attempts to get back on the line.
Yes, I prefer tracks! I never had any use for routes, but many will give a good argument for routes and they probably do have their place, but I am not interested in routes..it all comes down to your preferences..hopfully someone else will get in here and tell you why routes are better than tracks..good luck
