  1. I have been playing with the 60CSx the last two day and love it..The 400t will be here tomorrow so i can not tell you which one i like the best..I can tell you the 60CSx will do everything you need but paperless cacheing.. And i did think about going the route of the palm as well but i do not want to have to look at two or three things when im out.. I cant wait to try out the 400t, and like the idea of the paperless feature, "not becuse i want to save trees but becuse it is convenient".
  2. THank you I got the icons figured out, but im still alittle confused..I thought they where susposed to go into the geocache icon when i send them to the GPS unit.. The manual says you are susposed to be able to hit find and gointo the geochace icon to see the gecaches that are in your GPS, but it does not say how to put them there..
  3. I have been loading geocaches into the 60CSx from here and it keeps coming up in my waypoints instead of my geochaches.. When i use the find button on the 60CSx the downloaded geocaches are in the waypoints and not the geochace icon... When i download the caches to the 60CSx i been clicking onto the, Send to gps and then hit the write button... How do i make them goto the geocache area oof the 60CSX? Thank you
  4. I got the 60CSx in and already loaded my topo's. WOW! This is a cool little GPS, and now i cant wait until tur to get the 400t..
  5. I called Garmin today and the biggest deciding factor for me between the 300-400t, was that you will not be able to fit all of topo 2008 directly onto the 300...Thats why i went with the 400t becuse i know it will always be on there...
  6. http://garmincolorado.wikispaces.com/General+Information, question G3. Thanks for the info...That is everything i have been looking for. I went with the 400t and it will be here on Tur..The 60CSx sould be knocking at my door within the nex hour.. Now i will have the best of both worlds and my wife will have one of her own...
  7. Yeah... i just called Garmin and they told me the same thing, so i Ordered the 400t... The Big Brown truck is dropping off the 60CSx today, and the 400t will be here Turesday...Than i have to call and get a second unlock code for the 400t for the NA City Nav... I cant wait to get my hands on both to do a side by side comparison on them.
  8. LOL I know this will start a fire, but here it goes anyway... I do like REI alot and shop there from time to time, but their prices are always high in my opioin..I prsonaly dont think the REI club, or whatever its called is worth it becuse i dont see any savings. becuse its still more to me than other places .I do know alot of plp that are die hard REI customers and thats fine and dandy, but i do not have a unlimited budget for the bragging rights to say, " i bought it at REI", so i do have to shop around for the best price out there...
  9. Sure, that is what they say..... There is obviously a serious QA problem at the factory and they need to fend off as many returns as possible... I've only had mine hang on specific caches that have HTML. Strip the HTML and they work fine. If it is bothersome, run a GSAK macro to strip all HTML code from the caches. I have seen nothing wrong not related to that issue. Of the 6 people I know, only one has had a bad unit and it was a physical problem. As I say, I believe there is a serious QA problem going on. Anyone with a problem that is not known and reproducable in another unit, should return it. Can you please explain what yall are talking about becuse i am totaly lost and realy do want to learn as much info as possable...I am new to high-tec GPS's, (i have been useing my old army compass and etrex the last few years)
  10. where did you find it? It would help people be able to let you know if they are reputable or not if they know the name of the place. here is the link http://www.everyprice.com/item.asp?item_id...CFQ-TggodCgMNbg
  11. I need to add that i will be useing the Colorada as a autorouter in the car, "but mainly for geochaching with the paperless feature", so im not sure on the diff with the memory.
  12. If you have already ordered Topo ( US I assume ) you may want to just get the 300 as you can then load your Topo maps on both units. Can i do that? I keep hearing, about how i can only use the software on only one device..And is the internal memory the same on the 300 as the 400t...I realy have not got a clue, thats why i am asking..Any help would be welcomed...
  13. I found the site for the $479 price but it does not say if it is refurbished or new.. Does anyone know,becuse i just want to know before i order it...
  14. Ok guys and gals, "im back".. I had to step away for a bit and get a unbiased opioin on the matter.. I had my wife sit down and read everything, and she said i should of made my questions clearer, and i was acting like a brat, so i do apoligize to all.. One good thing is she said, "Why not get both?"(Gotta love tax season,. "Its better than Christmas") She said she would like one as well so get both and she will take the one i dont like, so i will be placing a Order for the 300 or 400t tonight.. Now for the coin toss..."which one" I forgot to add i did order the 60CSx today with topo and city na...Does garmin sale unlock codes so i can use the city na on both units...
  15. People need to realize that forums ATTRACT people that LIKE to complain. Because of this there is a disproportionite amount of negative to positive posts from what you would find in a survey of a full cross section of users. Where did get that data from? sounds like, it's just your opinion and you just pulled it out of your A**. As far the The Colorado, it's way short of being 100%. You know that. If you like being sold a product that does not perform like a finished, ready to use, 100% reliable, then your entitled to that. but don't shove your view down the forums throat or goat someone else for feeling the Colorado is not STABILIZED. I guess your comment might constitute complaining in your sense, so you are actually making up part of your own referenced stats. Carry On! WOW! This is getting out of control...Everyone is intitled to their own opinions so dont bash someone for their input when you had none of you own. (expet to flame on someone) I have decided an it will be the 60CSx and i will get the 400t in a few mo... The other thing i have decided, is i want no part of this site if this is how plp act on here...It seem that some plp on here just wants a argument..
  16. Barry, As I understand the issues, Garmin does not own any of the "road warrior" maps. These are purchased from Naviteq and TeleAtlas. These companies impose very restrictive licensing terms on their users. As a measure of the value of the intellectual property involved, Naviteq was just sold to Nokia for $5B and Garmin dropped out of the bidding for TeleAtlas at $3B. Basically, you're blaming Garmin for a problem they have no control over. Garmin does own the Topo family of maps and you'll see much more liberal use terms. Also, IIRC, Garmin is the only company which has maps on a PND and a PC software like Mapsource. So if you purchased any other PND, their would be no PC viewing option. In this case you're damming Garmin for a feature no other GPS company offers. Seems unfair. FWIW So Garmin has no control???? So they did not spend the extra 2b but will make a extra 2b in software sales..(Thats smart on there part) They certanly have the control to load it onto their product, (400t) or sell it seperate...Look im not tying to start a flame war but its all about economics...If you sell the 400t with a preload that cant be used on someones comp. That person will eventually want to plot a map and load them, so "yeah you guessed it" that person will have to spend more money on software, (probbaly your product)..
  17. Well i was thinking of getting the 400t, but now if i get a Co. it will be the 300 and get Topo seperate on CD..
  18. Man aint that the truth...."Atleast they work the bugs out of golf clubs before they release them" ... I will know which one tomorrow...
  19. Sure you do - my time is valuable, so is my Gas Money scouting out places to place caches that can be denied on a whim, etc. Everything costs something - not necessarily money per-se, but definitely something. WoW! I bet you would argu with a tree and tell it its not a tree....
  20. Irish my wife was looking at the Rhino's for the same reaseon, but we have a set of radios already....I think we are going with the 60Csx, but wont know for sure until i get out to the stores tomorrow and put my hands on them ..The 400t is still in the running but i dont know if i want to wait on all the firmware to get running properly....
  21. I'd like to see the supporting documentation to verify this... but I guess you don't want people to comment on this part. Read the whole sentence, becuse i said this what i found from the reviews and info on the net. I'd like to hear this myself... but I guess you don't? So this is the ONE thing you wanted to know in your thread... gotcha. Glad you got the info you were looking for. Read into it what you will, but you dont have to be a jack-a** about it... At no point was i rude or out of line, so peel yourself away from the screen, go outside, and get in touch with reality.
  22. You may have to play by there rules but you dont have to pay for the game...
