    Thats why I'm considering a "spare". With my kind of luck, a newer model will be a step backwards...sort of why I bought a few spare GSes when the new ones came out. :D

    there is an interesting comparison between the 60CS and the 60CSx here

    you know we pay $799 au retail for the CSx ($699 for the Cx) in Australia and there is no rebate available either. That would be $678 US and $593 US respectively. But they do throw in free delivery though.

    Sucks to be us:lol3

    Good deal LVR.

    I netted 300 bucks for a 60CSx last Nov. with $50 rebate. No extended warranty.

    I'm on my second warranty return in 10 months. :deal Extended warranty is a good idea.:wink: Don't get me wrong these little buggers can take a bump! Good stuff!:D I don't think I'll be using it again on a road bicycle. Great for everything else: dual sport riding, hiking, car.
    I'm all for the alt. and compass sensors even at 50 more bucks. :clap Especially the stationary compass yes I use it.

    Enjoy,

    Thats why I've brought a unit over to a rider in Europe...it was half the price after all was said and done. Sorry, I'm not heading to Oz though...not yet.

    You have to wonder about Garmin's pricing anywhere but in North America. :rolleyes

    Just received my 60CSx from BuyERetail and would buy from them again. Called on Tuesday to see about changing delivery because I hadn't received a shipping notice. Was told it shipped Friday, and 20 minutes later the doorbell rang.

    I didn't go for the extended warranty, after reading it basically didn't cover anything I could actually see going wrong with it. Especially since the dont cover screen or buttons. I'll take a gamble and try Garmin service if something craps the bed after the original warranty runs out.

    Shipdog.com has the 60CSX for $271 (this includes the $50 rebate) and free shipping and no tax outside of NY.

    Check around, you can probably find a better deal than that out there.

    Unfortunately, buyeretail.com (the vendor with the price point this thread was created for) no longer offers the 60CSx. No idea whether that's permanent, or just a seasonal sold-out thing.

    In the good bit of checking around that I've done in the past few days, the shipdog.com price of $271 after rebate was the lowest I could locate. However, that includes free shipping whereas buyeretail.com had a failry stiff shipping penalty, so the price diff is close to a wash anyway.

    FWIW...:ear

    FYI, shipdog.com is operated by the same place as buyeretail.com. I know this because my invoice from buyeretail.com says Titanic Prices at the heading, and the shipdog.com site says very conspicuously that they are DBA Titanic Prices.

    Just received a 60CSx that I ordered from buyeretail.com. Came to $320 including shipping ($15), before $50 rebate. It was the best I could find...

    OK it's less than a week before Christmas and less than 2 weeks before the $50 Garmin rebate ends so I thought a bump was in order. I just stepped up to a 60csx direct from Amazon.com.

    $329.99 with free shipping and in-stock (up $4 overnight :eek1 )
    -$50.00 Garmin Rebate
    -$30.00 off first purchase using Amazon/Chase credit card (instant on-line app and approval)
    _______
    $249.99

    And Amazon is an authorized Garmin dealer!
