Hand held GPS receiver with large color display, integrated world and Europe/Africa map, auto-routing, USB and serial interface.

The GARMIN GPSMAP60C / GPSMAP60Cx is very easy to use thanks to its rocker key and user friendly graphical interface. It supports multiple languages, has an integrated world map (overview) plus a base map of Europe, Africa and the near East. In addition, the GPSMAP60C has 56 MB of built-in memory to store even more detailed information, such as local roads, restaurants and points of interest. The GPSMAP60Cx has a slot for a standard micro SD memory card in the battery compartment and comes with a 64 MB memory card. The extremely sensitive antenna provides navigation information outdoors, in a car, in a train or even in an airplane (see MapSource examples). Because of the very low power consumption, the batteries of the GPSMAP60C / GPSMAP60Cx last up to 30 hours. The built-in serial and USB interface support data exchange with a PC.

Note: The GPSMAP60CS / GPSMAP60CSx provides the following enhancements over this model: An integrated electronic compass and an integrated barometrical altimeter.

16 Off Course The distance you are off the desired course.
17 Pointer Arrow that indicates the direction to travel to the next point on a route.

19 Speed - Maximum Maximum speed since last reset*).
20 Speed - Moving Avg. Average speed without the time with no motion since the last reset*).
21 Speed - Overall Avg. Average speed including the time with no motion since the last reset*).
22 Sunrise Time of sunrise at the current position.
23 Sunset Time of sunset at the current position.
24 Time To Destination Estimated travel time to the final destination.
25 Time To Next Estimated travel time to the next waypoint (turn, crossing etc.).
26 Time of Day Current time.
27 To Course Direction to the planned course.
28 Trip Odometer Travelled distance since last reset*).
29 Trip Time - Moving Time with motion since last reset*).
30 Trip Time - Stopped Time without motion since last reset*).
31 Trip Time - Total Total time since last reset*).
32 Turn The direction of and the distance to the next turn on a route.
33 Velocity Made Good The rate of closure to the destination, based upon your current speed and course.
34 Vertical Speed Current ascending or descending speed.
35 Vertical Speed To Dest Required rate of ascent or descent to reach the final destination.
36 Water Speed Current speed over water (requires an external data acquisition device).
37 Water Temperature Temperature of the water (requires an external data acquisition device).
38 Waypoint At Dest Name of the waypoint at the final destination.
