GPSr Units / New GPS unit
« on: December 11, 2010, 10:01:53 AM »
Hi, I'm new here looking to upgrade my old GPS unit.

My current unit is a Garmin GPS38 which i brought back in 1987 and has given me good service, but I do find it rather slow at getting a fix. This unit is always used in conjunction with a real OS map and is great for finding your location where the weather closes in up on the mountains. I also use it for marking obscure locations on open mountain.

So with this in mind I was looking for a new model, I like the Garmin and it is nice to see that the newer models still retain the use of AA battery's. Internal mapping is not that important to me but agree that it could be handy (If wind blows away my map over mountain edge). I'm more interested in being able to locate exactly where I am under poor weather conditions, and still get a signal in forest, plus be able to mark a particular site once I have found it.

I have been looking at the Garmin GMAP 60CSx Handheld which I know is a older model, but also been looking at the Garmin GPSMAP 62s. Do you think that the 62s with the newer chipset is worth having. Or I'm open to any other suggestions.
