Garmin GPSMap 60C Review


UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For more current recommendations, please refer to our handheld GPS buyers guide or our Garmin handheld GPS comparison chart.

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.

25 readers at Amazon rated the Garmin 60C at 4-1/2 (out of 5) stars. Here’s what other reviewers are saying:

  • GPS does their usual excellent job when they review the GPSMap 60C.
  • Utah Geocachers weigh in with this review of the Garmin GPS 60C.
  • Seven readers at ZDNet rate the GPS Map 60C a 7.7 out of a possible 10.
