    G'day all

    never owned a gps, used a few in car. From what I read the garmin 60csx is a good unit and will suit my day/weekend rides around south east queensland.

    The cheapest I can find one is new on ebay @309 delivered
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GARMIN-G...327?pt=AU_Electronics_GPS&hash=item27bba9b2ef

    it says it is genuine australian model with international marine point base map loaded?

    1. Is this the correct basemaps?
    2. Any advice so I dont buy the wrong thing, or anyone know any shops I could get as good a deal at ?
    3. Also I have a mac at home, will the gps/software ineract ok?
    4. What else should I buy to load it onto my bars, which mount etc?
    After buying the gps I will be a bit broke so like the idea of free maps, shonky get recommended allot. Am I on the right track.

    Advice is welcome, or if anyone know a good deal on another unit that might suit.

    cheers
