    Default Garmin launches the new X-treme series handheld gps

    Well as expected the new X serisies GPS's are finnally listed on the Garmin Website so it is offical now. I have been looking at the specs and I have to say that the 60 csx might just get me to convert from my magellan over to the Garmin camp.

    So far The 60 csx seems to be a really nice unit but is winning only cause of hte size. The 2 points that the 76 Series is better in thoug are. 1, it floats, 2. that it includes a larger memory card by default (easaly corrected by replacing the card). The screens and features seem to be the same other than thoose 3 differances and I think that the smaller overall size would be a big advantage.

    Here are the links to Garmin's Specs

    I figured that this might spark a little conversation.

    I think any "serious" geocacher looking to upgrade their unit needs to get one of these. I bought a 60c in the spring so I can't justify the upgrade right now, but if I were still using the eTrex Legend, I'd have one of these on order.

    I am really excited about the "X" versions, which use the new SiRF chip.

    I know, I am just waiting till I can fit it into my budget then I will be putting my merdian up for sale and getting the 60 csx I think.

    I was using TAT's 76c over the holidays and was very impressed with it and now that they have the memory card option I am very impressed

    I was just checking out the garmin website and realize that the X series is only about 35 dollars more than the old one. I cant imagine not spending the 35 dollars to buy better. Always buy up. I wish I had waited now. I bet we see a whole bunch of garmins going on sale here soon. I would consider selling mine to upgrade if the price was right

    For Sale: One slightly used left arm (would sell my left leg but who the
    heck needs two left feet). This is a must have for all
    those who just need an extra hand. Or trade for Garmin 60csx
    or 76csx. Can throw in an old eTrex (yellow edition) to make
    things even.

    I can't say I'll be the first but I will have one of the new Garmin x series GPSr for the summer, I hope, . Although I found my first 389 caches with Old yellow so its kind of hard to tell the wife I need the new GPSr. Want and need, need and want. Sometimes its sooooo hard to differentiate. Why, why do they do these things to us????????

    I just bought my 60cs too this summer. I'm gonna have to hold off for a few years with my 60cs. I couldn't be happier though, I like it.
    Sorry, you can not add yourself to your own ignore list.

    Hmm, justifcation, I am glad I do not need that

    As for that though you could allways try that the new GPS is alot more accurate so I would be able to spend less time searching for a cache and more time enjoying her company.
