    I see they have the Zumo 450 for $169, but I am a little skeptical of their payment options.

    Bank Transfer
    Western Union
    MoneyGram
    T/T

    And they have several million in assets that they need to urgently transfer to you thru their Nigerian banker!

    Smells like SCAM

    60, 76 or 78. Not 62, no decent external power connector. 76 is discontinued, cheaper than 78, a bit more than 60 which is: the least expensive, has that aerial sticking out to be torn off and probably will be discontinued soon. 78 is new and pricey with some track handling issues. You have to decide.

    Hey Dave :rofl it was half in jest. I Am looking for a GPS but ive learned to STFU and read the already posted info. I dread being stopped by the GPS police that will not hesitate to direct me to the search box :D

    250senuf : Thank you for the post. People seem to hate the fact that the 62 has only mini usb (or is it micro) but i kinda like the idea..:ear

    Seems drawback is the lack of waterproof. How robust is the other question. YMMV.
    Happy with my 76--.

    250senuf: Which 76 do you have? there is the S and cs and csx. Correct ?

    There is an S for sale on my local craigslist thats pretty cheap, but i was under the impression that the C stads for "card", as in it has a slot for an sd card, which i would think would be not just nice but needed..:ear

    Gazza dunno but even if i was halfway willing to try in the beginning, that Hayabusa for 900 bucks ,...:dunno

    I have the csx. I'm not sure what all the letters stand for. I think the card is good to have. You can load multiple mapsets at once as well as having it log the track of the whole day, for many days to the card. I think the Garmin site still has the 76's available to do the "compare" thing. If not, try GPScity or the other online sellers. Most of them have the "compare" option.

    The x stands for eXpandable, i.e., the memory card slot.
    The S stands for Sensors, i.e., the compass and altimeter.

    Thank you. Makes sense to get the csx so you can expand memory.
