+Rotareneg Posted January 24, 2006 Share Posted January 24, 2006 (edited) Got my 60CX this afternoon. With WAAS enabled it's showing accuracy at least as good as my Legend, and I mean actual position error from known locations, not the EPE display (Estimated Position Error, it's not an 100% correct indication of accuracy.) As for the "wandering" issue, I'm almost certain it's just that the GPS is filtering the data differently than their older units and is more "sensitive" to perceived motion (be it real or just from the inherent inaccuracy of the GPS signals.) The receiver sensitivity is nothing to write home about, mainly because I doubt they'd believe what I'd have to say! My Legend loses it's lock just standing under the overhang above the front doors of the theater where I work, but 60CX kept it's lock far inside the building and only lost it when the doors in the elevator I took closed! Of course the accuracy when inside a metal building where the signal is simply bouncing inside from the front windows is of dubious value, but it's still highly impressive. The speed of the unit seems to be quite a bit faster than I remember my Legend C being, but it's been a while so I can't say for sure. It's obviously far faster than my old B&W Legend of course.
