GPS Map 60Cx/CSx discontinued

 

We just added these two models: GPS Map 60Cx and GPS Map 60CSx, to the “Discontinued”. Still, the 60CSx was my favorite. Time for changes. The new replacing model is GPS Map 62 series (in Thailand available GPS Map 62s at the moment). More details on our website: http://www.eaglegps.co.th. Also you can purchase it directly from our GPS Auction (payment via: PayPal accepted).

What are the differnces between GPS Map 60CSx and GPS Map 62s:

But the new features in 62s are very convincing : improved battery life, 1.7 GB of internal memory, more POI and routes, 3-axis compass, paperless geocaching and wireless unit-to-unit transfer.
