  1. I purchased a 60CSx from them about a month ago. No problems. Very easy transaction. I ordered it on a Sunday evening, it was shipped the next day and delivered 4 days later. Not too bad!

     

    I looked for this unit for about 3 months. Reseached all the possibilities and GPSonSale had the best price, without a doubt.

     

    I would definately buy from them again.

     

    Happy hunting,

  2. Good news, if you're just using the compass/waypoint arrow, there's no problem.

     

    Some more bad news... the unit only comes with base maps installed. If you want auto-navigation, you need to install the detail maps. If you are using the standard 64mb card that shouldn't take long to download the maps onto it, but first you need to install them on your PC and un-lock them.

     

    Once you get going with the new unit... it's Great!

  3. I've been following this thread and I have the custom POIs working fine with my 60CSx. The only question I have is how do you do a mass delete of all the custom POIs? I can mass delete the waypoints and geocaches from menu selections on the GPS, but not these. Is the only way to get rid of the current ones to overwrite them with a new file of custom POIs? I am using GSAK and the GPX file.

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Jim

  4. My wife and I started out with the Etrex Yellow over 2 years ago. We managed to find over 500 caches with it. Ranging from Boston to Las Vegas. We have had NO problems with it. We find it to be very accurate.

     

    We switched to a Legend a while back only because we decided the mapping features would be nice and we got a fantastic buy on it. We keep the "Yellow" as a backup unit now and it's attached to the laptop for real time navigation.

     

    I have no problem recommending the Etrex Yellow.

  5. I use a Legend with my laptop. If your laptop has a serial port then you will NOT need anything else to connect the GPS. If it has only USB ports, then you will need a USB to Serial cable. They can be found on Ebay.

     

    I have 3 different mapping applications: Streets & Trips, Mapsource, and Delorme's Street Atlas. I like the Mapsource best. I think the map detail is very good. I use the Metroguide version 4.02 with it. This version has an autoroute feature.

     

    The Delorme Street Atlas also has autorouting and it talks to you when it's time to make a turn. But it is not an intutitive program to use.

     

    All the software packages have their pros and cons. The best suggestion is to find someone who uses one and see if you can get a demo and then make a decision.

  6. Hello All,

    A few of us are coming down to the Cincinnati area this weekend. We're looking for some fun caches to do. We kinda want the terrain rating at about 1 to 1.5. Nothing too difficult. We're kinda tired!! Any suggestions???
