+JSWilson64 Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 After hearing of the switch of the 60CSx chipset from SirfStar III to (something else?), I thought I'd see what my favorite online merchant had listed. NewEgg's website lists the 60CSx chipset as the SirfStar III (just re-checked today). However, they have a fairly restrictive (ok, really restrictive) return policy listed for most GPS units. 30 days, replacement-only, no refund. That might be enough to turn someone off, but if you were to persist in a purchase to get a real SirfStar III unit ($289 is an OK price and only 2 bucks to ship to my ZIP). buyer beware. I opened a customer-service chat window, and asked about what the specs the CSR could pull up said the unit. "She" confirmed that it said SirfStar III. That was about all the rep was unambiguous about. I asked that if I received it and it did not have the specs that were listed on the web site, would it be returnable. I got two answers - if it is not as listed, sure it can be replaced. But if I'm returning it because of a different version number, then no it's not returnable. I'm not sure whether the models with the new chipset are even in the pipeline yet, but I guess if I were to buy another 60CSx at this point, I wouldn't part with my cash until I could boot it up and verify the firmware version for myself.
