The GPSMap 60 series is a tried and true line of GPS receivers. Quite a few people ask me for GPS recommendations, and the 60 series is often what I recommend.

I used a GPSMap 60CS for 2500 miles on the Great Divide, two 700+ mile trips on the AZT, the Grand Loop, the Colorado Trail, etc. Finally, after all that, the handlebar mount did break, but was easily fixed with a zip tie. Some prefer to use a zip tie or other strap to keep the GPS on the bars should it pop off its cradle. But I never had much of an issue with it.

The CSx is the latest and best version of this GPS. It adds a “high sensitivity” Sirf chipset to the CS. I rarely had any signal issues, but, hey, better is better.

The screen is large and easy to read on the handlebars. This is the main advantage the 60 series has over the eTrex line, the downsides being larger unit, slightly more weight and a bit more costly.

The software is also easy to learn and pick up, even for GPS noobs.
