The Garmin GPSMap 60C is basically the same unit as the 60CS, minus the barometric altimeter and electronic compass. It has the same bright color screen and can utilize routable maps, so it can do double duty in the backcountry or the car. The 60C, a mid-level model, is a step up from the GPSMap 60, which has less memory and a greyscale screen.
