    I'm pretty sure double take mirrors gives a discount to adv members. He's in the vendors thread.

    I have a map60csx that I will sell to you. $250 complete with the maps so let me know. I even think I still have some of the mounting hardware for the bars if I can locate them. The unit is like new but the screen is too small and I can't see it without my glasses.

    This is an excellent unit. I like it so much I bought a second one to keep for when my primary one dies. $250 is a good deal. I saw a new one on ebay for $650 recently.

    I also have a 60Cx with TOPO map installed and it works very well for me. Yes there is that small screen issue, but I carry my "cheeters" in my possible bag.

    Mefadv,
    You should carry your spot on your person so that in the instance of a seperation and you can not crawl to your bike, you can still reach your spot. I also thought there was some kind of electrical interference with the spots that suggested they not be placed in near proximity to GPS units?
