After much deliberation about which unit would be best for the kind of trip we want to undertake, I finally settled on the Garmin 60CSX for number of reasons:

  • High-sensitivity GPS receiver gives you improved satellite reception even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons
  • Barometric altimeter provides extremely accurate elevation data
  • Electronic compass can determine your heading and direction, even when you're standing still
  • IPX7 waterproof case can withstand an accidental dunk in the water and still perform
  • Large, colour TFT display makes viewing the screen easy, day or night
  • Built-in autoroute basemap, including major roads, exits and tide data, gives you automatic, turn-by-turn directions

    Have you considered loading the T4A GPS maps onto your Garmin GPS, if not check out (I am not affiliated, it just looks like a usefull product for this kind of trip).

    Thanks Mark. We have indeed. I would also recommend taking a look at the Wanderlust maps, available here:

    Hi Mark We are Randall and Maureen Munro. Randall is a cousin of your Dad and we were at lunch together and he was saying that he couldn't find your diary on his website and I gave him a tip as to how to get it. I haven't spoken to him yet but will phone him just now and ask him if he managed to get it. We live down the South Coast as well. Good luck
