    Which GPS do forum members use?

    I'm looking to the forum members to help me decide on which GPS to buy.
    I originally started a thread on the 2 stroke performance forum regarding input of the Garmin GPSMAP 76. It's a bit on the large size, but the fact that it floats and has a large display, seems to make it a good choice (for me).
    Could some of you post which unit you have and what features you like??
    So far I'm considering these two.
    As for those who gave their feedback in the other post, please don't take this new thread as a disregard for your input; I'm just trying to see what the majority is using on the water.

    I love it! It has a nice velcro strap that fits on the handlebars.

    Ive got the Garmin 76csx. I like it, but I'm hoping to one day move up to a larger chartplotter w g2vision 3d software. It can be difficult for me to track on small screen at speed in bad weather (even though 76 is one of the biggest handhelds). Also, I was lucky in that shop replaced entire unit when plug corroded after approx 5 months of use.

    garmin 60csx.........

    color,external antenna,its got an electronic compass and a barometer, so if ever the satellites stop working, or im in a cave i know my elevation and direction.

    it doesnt float but it doesnt come off the mount,, anymore.. once it flew off and i caught it mid-air... for some reason when that much money is about to vanish the slo-mo spider man reflexes kick in..

    Ok, so I see some of you DO use the larger GPS 76 style unit. I guess the size of it doesn't matter much. The only down fall is not being to mount it to the bar, like the eTrex series. Damn decisions!!
    For those of you that mount it on the bar, can you read it easily while riding? I can't seem to find a handle bar mount for the GPSMAP 76; maybe it would be to big for that spot.
    Thanks guys...
