    I have found the garmin 76cx for 30% off brand new. Is this a good GPS compared to the other garmin GPS? or should I keep looking? I know it dosent have a sensor, but is it still good enough? I am looking to go out west of Queensland to do some touring?

    PLEASE HELP as I have only 1 day left for this sale.

    It is fine for offroad work.

    It has a GPS movement compass but not a fluxgate compass (direction when stationary) and also GPS calculated height rather than pressure calculated

    The GPSmap 60Cx is the same unit in a slightly smaller case and usually a little cheaper
