Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx

Hey, i got a brand new GPS!, this beauty is eqquiped with a Sirf Star III , a high receiving sensitivity and fast position fix GPS chipset.
It's a little bit big but has a really nice 160 x 240, 256 color display perfect for any kind of activity.
Other feature that i love is the microSD slot, expanding the capacity when storing Maps, with 512mb, i had loaded all the provinces of argentina, topographic & marine leaving plenty of space for many more maps.
This GPS is ready for any kind of abuse..
Linux support works like a charm if you are using last stable 2.6 kernel.
