stevesisti Posted September 1, 2005 Share Posted September 1, 2005 Garmin seems to be pushing the new Sirf III chip as in their new Bike gps units (edge) I have never seen them advertise the reception on any of their handheld units as they decribe the edge... # High-sensitivity GPS receiver—knows your position even in tree cover and canyons, making it extremely reliable for navigation Are we looking at the next release of handhelds all incorporating the Sirf technology, making my 60cs somewhat of a "paper weight". If we are, I have to hand it to Garmin marketing, because if they perform as I'm starting to hear, I can see a new "wave" of purchases to get units with the higher sensitivity chip. I heard there were problems with the original Sirf chip, But recent reviews and Garmins commitment to purchasing and incorporating the sirf chip in their new products makes me wonder just how good the chip is.
