GPSr Units / Keep my GPSmap60csx or upgrade?
« on: July 06, 2016, 06:50:35 AM »
I am new to the forum, and very new to using gps maps.  I have experience with navigation, but not with these particular devices.  I have a gpsmap 60csx that I inherited, but it does not have any maps uploaded on it other than the basemap. 

I found this site, and am planning on using the texas, new mexico, colorado, and wyoming topo maps, and some trail overlays, but am not sure if that is possible with the 60csx due to the map size limitation.  Do I need to put each map on a separate sd card and switch cards when i go into different areas?  Or do I have to load different maps with mapsource or basecamp every time I want to use a different map?

Is it possible to load the US OSM Auto map alongside the topo maps, and select which map I want to display on the device, so i can navigate on the road, or trail?  I want to try and use this gps, but if it is too much of a hassle I may get a different one. Is this worth keeping?

I am looking at the etrex 30, gpsmap 64st, or oregon 700 as alternatives.

I would appreciate any advice/input from other 60csx owners.  Thanks!
