I've ready a lot of good things on those but they are pretty pricey. How much did you pick yours up for if you don't mind telling?Cutthroat said:Yup, have a Garmin GPSMap 60CS. In the summer, when I troll, I mark the location where I get strikes. In the winter, I have marked waypoints on lakes where I have had good luck for lake trout.
I really like that option of having an external antenna, it seems to be able to cut through heavy tree cover. I may have to just say the hell with it and spring for that 60CS modelCutthroat said:I got it a couple months after they came out from Amazon.com (free shipping, no tax). I think their price was something around $390 or so. They had a deal for some kind of discount with electronics purchases and I had another chunk of "free" money from another promotion, so I ended up paying nearly $100 less than asking price for it. They are pricy, but it's nice to have the mapping capability, and the good antenna that has never failed me (like etrex sometimes does) in steep canyons. Color display is nice. If you think the CS is pricy, you can save money by going with the B&W version, which is closer to the $250 mark, I think. Not sure if any of the other cool features have been scaled back on it, but color is really just a luxury on these things.
