60cx speed

I recently sold my quest 2 with the plan of getting a 60cx. I ended up being side tracked by a 276c. It's awesome but maybe too much for my bike and still can't be used for hiking.

Now I'm thinking of selling the 276c and getting the 60cx. My real question is how fast does the 60cx calculate routes etc. compared to the Quest 2? Is it slower, faster, same?

Major differences as far as a bike mounted gps?

Thanks,
Brian

I don't know about the Q2 or 276C, but the 60Cx is damn fast calculating routes.
Faster than my V anyway

It is scary fast compared to the V. I had to put the first one I touched down. Fast.

Thanks guys, my problem is I have no clue how fast a V is. The 276 is awesome on zooming in , out etc. I thought the quest 2 was a bit slow.

Really looking for a comparison to one of those models as they are all I know.

I haven't used the quest 2.

The 60.. is a lot slower than the 276 for route calculation. Likely an order of magnitude. Usable though. The V was ridiculously slow; I thought it was nearly unusable. The 60.. is definitely way faster than those. One thing about the 60.. vs. the 276 is that the 60.. has a higher contrast display and is very easy to see in any lighting. The 276 is good, but not as good as the 60... The 60.. really lacks the resolution though and will never replace paper maps. The 276 is much closer to getting you away from paper.

The 276 can be used for hiking but it'snot theat well suited and the 60.. is much better for that. I have both!
