  1. I had a chance to use my new Garmin 60CS on the raod today. I had uploaded several maps from Mapsource but did not think that the would autoroute. I am using Version 6.3 of Mapsource and did not realize that Metroguide is a program within Mapsource. Anyway, I found out that I have Version 3.0 of Metroguide and it worked great, allowing my 60CS to autoroute right to my destination. My question is, since my version of Metroguide works with autorouting is there any reason to buy City Select V.6 like I had planned? I do not travel a whole lot but are the upgrades worth the new expense. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. I had the ETrex handle bar mount already for one of my bikes. I wanted to be able to switch the unit to my wifes bike and the kids wanted to put it on theirs also. I ordered a couple of handle bar mounts for the E-Map unit and it worked perfect. The actually handlebar mount is the same and the E-Map mount was just over $5.00, as opposed to $15.00 for the Etrex mount.

  3. Sorry, busy weekend and I was in a shotgun school all day yesterday. I ordered the E-Map handlebar mounting kit on Thursday and it arrived Saturday via Priority Mail. The handlebar unit is the same and my kids have now mounted their Etrex units and are off exploring the world (as long as that world is not more then two blocks from the house). I now have two E-Map brackets that I have no use for, so if someone wants them please let me know. Thanks for all the help everyone.

  4. I found the EMap mounts for $5.95 at GPS City, add 6.95 for Shipping Priority Mail. I ordered two of them plus some other items so that was not to bad. Best price I found for the Etrex mount was at GetFeetWet, where I got my 60CS. They are selling them for $10.00 but they wanted to charge me $12.50 for shipping! I told them No Thanks, I would look elsewhere. If these work I will have a couple of EMap brackets if you know anyone who has a use for them.

  5. Thanks for the replies. I just ordered 2 EMap mounts from GPS City so hopefully they will go out today and I should have them early next week. I tried to find them locally but they were priced $15-20 and I would rather wait a couple of days and save a bit of money.


    Cherokeecacher - I have not been to Houston in awhile. Last time I was there I was just passing thru on my way to Florida for a funeral. Used to go every summer to Six Flags but with Fiesta Texas and Sea World so close it is hard to justify the trip.

  6. Does anyone know if the Garmin handlebar mount is interchangable between different units? I know that the brackets are different but what I am asking about is the actual handlebar mount? I already have an Etrex (Legend) mount on my bike and I have a couple of extra battery covers with the mounting unit on it. I put the extra covers on my kids new Etrex units and I would like to get the handlebar mounts for their bikes. GPSCity has the Etrex mount for $14.95, but I can buy the mount for the EMap for $5.95, if the mount is the same. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Has anyone found a usable case for the 60CS? I am looking for something like the case for the Etrex that will protect the GPS but still allow me to use it without removing the case. Sorry if this has been covered before but I could not find anything doing a search. Thanks for any help.

  8. Might be a regional thing at Wal-Mart. I was in three different Wal-Marts yesterday and all had them priced at $99.95. I know someone else had mentioned that Target was having a sale on their Garmin stock, but it has not shown up in my area either. I guess we can always try the price matching deal and see if Wal-Mart wants to play...

  9. Picked up my Etrex from Best Buy today. They shipped it in from Sugarland, TX since there were none in stock in the district I am in. Since Best Buy did not have any accessories I was looking for (I had a coupon for $15.00 off purchase) I decided to go by Circuit City. Well CC had an Etrex on the shelf (nothing else for the Garmin though) and it was priced $99.95, on sale. I figured, what the heck and took it up to customer service to ask about price matching. Not only did they match it, but gave me an additional 10% on top of that. I paid $42.10 and headed out the door. I think Target has one, if they will do the 110% on CC price.......


    Oh and the kids are now thrilled cause they each have their own, brand new GPS. No more having to share with dad.

  10. Took a bit of looking but I was able to find one in Houston, as you suggested. It is being send to a local store tonight. The employees in Houston were a pleasure to deal with, wish I could say the same for San Antonio. I spent 2 hours on hold waiting for them. Finally had to call another store but it was for the better. They called the Houston store, got it on the way, and then took the time to call me and let me know. Anyway, the units are out there but going fast. For 49.99 though it was worth the effort.

  11. I will have to second GetFeetWet. I ordered my 60 CS from them last week. Got the GPS at the best price I could find, plus free shipping, a free extended warranty (2 years instead of 1) and a free Garmin T-shirt. This is the first time I have ordered from them but my transaction was great. Best of Luck

  12. I am new to this also and have encountered the same problem with downloading. I use MSN and would always get the .aspx extension when I tried to download waypoints. I found that if you opened the internet using Internet Explorer it would let me download the files with the .loc extension. Hope it works for you.
