New Garmin 60c Accuracy Question


Recommended Posts


I just upgraded from an eTrex Yellow to a 60C.

Love the 60C, great unit, but the accuracy does not seem to be any better than my old Yellow. In fact I don't think its as good, and I have not even made it to the woods yet. Seems to be 50-500' away from know waypoints.

Have had the unit for a couple of weeks, used it a lot. Initially I set it outside in the clear for about 30 minutes to get a strong signal lock.

Anyone else had this problem? Is there a way to delete the basemap info and let it reaquire, I think Magellans can do this.

My 60cs (not 60c) is *very* accurate. I've been out with a yellow etrex side by side and am amazed at the difference. I have only had two times where the compass was

all over the place and I'm not sure it was the GPS' fault. The etrex venture and etrex

(yellow) were all misguided as well (but much more so than the 60cs).
