Garmin 60Csx is a somewhat clunky and cumbersome tool. Having said that, I would never move away from it. My experience is identical to what the other posters say. It locks on to satellites, has exceptional battery life, and is fairly durable. I've used it to track many canoe and xc-ski trips. In addition, I've used it to record three cross country Amtrak train trips, and train trips in South Africa, Scotland, and Turkey. Getting the maps for these other regions was fairly simple once you get the hang of it.
Garmin discontinued the unit years ago, but as recently as last year, they were servicing the old sets which needed repair for problems such as broken screens. My advice: try to get a used one from Ebay or from someone who wants to unload his gear
