That's the cx instead of the csx, bit pricy for a used bit of kit but it does have the citymaps.
I'm another one for the Garmin GPS 60CSX...hands down winner
Forgot to mention the breadcrumb facility to keep a record of where you have been. Its fun uploading it into the Garmin Basecamp software and topo map and then choosing "view in Google Earth" which then overlays the track on the satellite view!
Interesting to see where you have taken wrong turns and backtracked etc.
Magellan Meridian Platinum. Cause I have had it for years, been through hell and back and is still going. Not as flash as the new ones, but hey it still ain't broke so why change??? External power is mechanical fastened, it won't come off with vibration.
Garmin 60csx hands down. Mine has survived 5000km of Malaysian rainforest riding and tropical rain on a 450EXC, it has a very sensitive receiver and works under a 60ft tropical canopy. Its now getting the orange dust treatment on my KTM530 and still going strong after 3yrs of thrashing.
Garmin Zumo is the go.
What do you like about the Garmin Zumo Maggno?
The 60 CSx is streaking away here seems the popular choice for the dirt enthusiast.
Another Zumophile here.
Haven't used the CSX so can't comment/compare.
Based on my use -
Can get Oztopo maps
Glove friendly buttons
Bluetooth is not A2DP (ie not stereo)
No auto routing
Do you know if the HTC Desire can do everything that the HD2 can?
A mate just got a Garmin GPSMAP78s the other day, he hasnt used it yet but it looks like a really nice bit of kit! It has a bigger better screen than my 60csx and looks just as tough. Anyone had any experience with this new model??
not the 78 but i use a 76 for work it is a great bit of kit and i find the screen a good size and easy to see and the buttons are well spaced for my fat fingures
Before you rush out and buy the 60CSx check this http://www.gpsaustralia.net/forums/showthread.php?t=16044
G'day pete I think the "HTC desire" has their own android operating software which means you won't be able to run Oziexplorer CE on it but otherwise the desire should do most of the same things.
Zumo for me, I don't use the sound features at all but the screen is what does it for me and the glove friendliness of it.
I'm on my second one the first died after about 120 000 km's broken circuit board from corrugations/ vibrations.
Took it in they gave me a new one as a replacement for just under $200.00 (it was 14 months out of warranty)
2nd one has done about 40 000 and going strong.
I run Oz topo and the standard maps thanks to a little very patient tech help from Bernie.
I am hoping its warna brotehr gps 60CSX I just bought it on the fleabay!!
hopefully it will serve me well!!!
i thought you already had a gps lentil?
gps stands for grouse penis size doesnt it?
This thread has inspired me to do some research on a new unit and I have come across this.
Its the long awaited replacement for the 60 series and looks fantastic. The only draw back I can see is the mini usb power plug. A definate backward step from the 60 series waterproff 5 pin plug.
Looks pretty reasonably priced and there is an even cheaper version, that doesnt have the compass, barometer or sd card, but it has 1.7g of inbuilt memory, which should be more than enough for most applications. I get by on the 56 meg on my 60.
Grouse or gross ?
well I sort of have a couple (this is where the nerd comes out) I have 2 handhelds at work a gps 72 and Trimble juno along with a DGPS for accurate marking
and a holux bluetooth for camera taking gelocated photos oh and one in my phone@!
it sad really!!
hows your packing coming along philth? got some mud boots?
Looked into that and you are right, they have gone to full Android operating system from Windows Mobile. Would be really good to have all your maps on a SD card and use OziExplorer I reckon.
Yeah it all depends which model HTC you buy as they have specific units with Android OR Windows..... this what i like about HTC... you get a choice of operating system.
I think the "HD2" is their top shelf (windows unit)... and the "DESIRE" is their top shelf (android unit).
