Had my 60CSx for nearly a year now, and used a mates for a year prior.

Folks seem to want larger touch screens, fair call and I understand why, and I thought I needed a larger screen too. I really did think I needed a larger screen, ageing eyes and all. But after using the 60CSx it is bullshit. The smaller screen is just fine, no problems for me, and because it is not a touch screen it won't delaminate on me either.
The 60 series does those nifty 3D displays, autoroutes (with autorouting software like any other GPS) and has basically all the functions of the other units as far as GPS goes, and maybe more.
The unit however doesn't do bluetooth, photos,. mp3's, or any of that other bling stuff, which I suspect is part of the reason it is such a damn fine GPS. They are more of a technical unit than the consumer grade ones, but in my limited experience it does everything you'd ever want of a GPS, and the little buggers are TOUGH. Size is perfect for a bike too, and it will just drop into your pocket when not in use.
There's a good reason why lots of riders skip the "bike" GPS's and get the 60CSx.

Amen to that. There is not one thing I would change about my Garmen 60

For Australia - GPS

The best solution I can see is the android Sony Xperia (waterproof) ($499 or $6 per month on a Telstra plan) loaded with MemoryMap ($200 for 1:25,000 topos and 1:250,000 aviation charts).
All that is cheaper than a Garmin Zumo with unreadable topo maps.
