Yeah - they should really do something to fix that That sucks - you must have been p@ssedMy wife does that with sunglasses - but not the cheap ones.....go figure
The only problem I see with the Garmins is that they can easily be left on the roof of your car, and then you forget it's there and drive off. Also, due to the high quality of the unit itself, when you come back looking for it a few days later (when you finally realize you left in on your roof), someone has picked it up and you never see it again.

Buy a GPS, they can be used to backtrack to the Garmin.

NO There is no reason I would not recommend the 60 csx. I'm looking at the 60 csx as well so I can pass down my legend to my wife or one of my kids. I'm biased to garmin because I have allot of their software. I also Like Delorme who make good GPS units (they now make a handheld) but are best known for their maps. I would look at the pn-30 and pn-40 wich come with topo 7 (Soon to be topo 8), Delorme now also has a Map Library Subscription Only $29.95 for an Annual Subscription which gives you access to all the Delorme data sets (Sat/Aerial/USGS). there PC mapping software is some of the best. I use there stuff to print maps.Another consideration is what you want to do with your GPS unit. lawrance magelin and garmin are good for fishing. Delrome and garmin are probably the best for hiking camping and hunting. This is mainly due to software. Delorme does not do oceans lakes and waterways well or at all, you have to use the data sets for that. Delorme has some of the cheapest software and is probably the best for printing maps.My biggest beef with a hand held GPS unit is it has to take standard common batteries, like AAs. Proprietary Rechargable batteries can get you in deep dodo when your in the back 40. remember to always have a map and compass on you as a back up, and keep your Land Nav skills up.
Jawbreaker- Can I ask where you found the 400t for $325? And you say the topo maps were included? I've been looking at the 60CSX but the cheapest I can find it is $292, then I have to buy the topo maps seperately... :(Mayhem- I believe the 60CSX takes 4gb SD cards as well, any reason you wouldn't recommend that model? I looked at the Etrex Vista HCX as well but the 60CSX seems to get better reception in all of the reviews I've read (likely because of the external antenna). The larger display is nice too along with all of the buttons being located on the front which will make using it while it's in a holder/cradle/RAM mount easier. I am fairly new to GPS's so any advice is appreciated.

I ended up getting the 60CSX & the 24k Topo West U.S. DVD. I am EXTREMELY happy with it. Battery life has been excellent, used it for 2 full days of riding my ATV in the Cascades & for a turn-by-turn trip to downtown Portland. It still shows I have almost half of a charge in the batteries (using standard Duracells, NOT the lithiums). I also picked up the RAM mount for my ATV which has been very handy when I'm exploring new trails & areas. Only thing I need to do now is upgrade the memory card from the 64mb that came with it to a 2gb. FYI- I searched everywhere and the cheapest place that I found the 60CSX was through WalMart.com.
