+krisse Posted January 3, 2006 Share Posted January 3, 2006 Since the search feature is down atm I decided to go ahead and make a new thread. I'll try and make it short. This will be the first unit I own. My need for a GPS unit springs from a love for mountain hiking and caching. So I will need a unit that is reliable, waterproof, easy to read and with a lasting power supply for those weeks out in the wilds. To sum up the differences between the two units; 60C - 30h battery 60CS - 20h battery - Compass - Altimeter I know the compass would be great for geocaching, where you have to locate something within one meter (or less), but I wont have much use for it on the long walks in open terrain where I will bring my 'analogue' compass anyway. So my questions are as follows: - Is it possible to turn the compass and/or altimeter off to get longer battery life? - How much more accurate is the altimeter compared to the GPS's elevation measurement? - How accurate is the digital compass, and how quickly does it align? Any other opinions will be gladly welcomed. Price tags are of no importance. Quote Link to comment
