yogazoo Posted April 17, 2008 Share Posted April 17, 2008 Like I said in my earlier post. If your a GeoCaching nerd (affectionatley, were all nerds of some sort simply for posting on these forums!), you likely love the Colordo. If you use a GPS for other things like navigating the backcountry or recording location data whether it be tracks or waypoints, then you'll likely prefer the 60CSX over the Colorado. Don't get me wrong, I really like the screen and resolution and on and on but the fact of the matter is that this unit is not marketed towards fitness, they don't say "take it for a jog" but they do say "take it for a hike". It's misleading marketing at best. Will this be a divergance in the Garmin handheld line in the future? Is this the way Garmin is going? A seperate class for Geocachers, a seperate class for fitness buffs, a seperate class for bikers, and a seperate class for hardcore hikers and backpackers? It sure seems so. If so they need to be more specific in the way they advertise things. If you don't see this as an "upgrade" from the 60CSX in their marketing and description of the product then your in flat denial. You guys can make arguments to make yourselves feel better but the reality of the matter is obvious to most. And to answer someones question earlier. My fourth unit had decent battery life and kept time. Thats how I knew it was a "KEEPER". Love at fourth first site, the unit worked kind-of as advertised. I think quality control at Garmin is getting a bit lax or is just out to lunch. Quote Link to comment
