What are the differences?
SOFTWARE FOR GLIDERS Garmin GPS models with a barometric altimeter offer several software features intended to simplify navigation, competition and record keeping in a variety of gliding sports. By visiting the GARMIN web site customers with older systems may download this free software update for their eTrex Vista, GPSMAP 60CS, GPSMAP 76S, GPSMAP 76CS or VistaC. The Glide Ratio and Glide Ratio to Destination feature uses GPS altimeter functions to help competitors determine if they can reach their target without passing a point of no return. The Vertical Speed to Destination features uses GPS altimeter functions to recommend the optimal speed to reach a checkpoint in a gliding time trial. Additionally, the manual route transition feature helps users to maintain an active leg to a checkpoint. They will see an arrow pointing them in the direction they need to make their next checkpoint and also allow them to automatically or manually transition to the next checkpoint.
JUMPMASTER ACCESSORY GPSMAP 60CS V3.70 added a Jumpmaster accessory (intended for trained military jumpmasters). Download Jumpmaster pdf   Download latest GPSMAP 60CS software.

"I also own a GPS that came with City Navigator [or City Select]. Can I use those maps on the 60CS?"
A: "Yes, you can register the GPSMAP 60CS as a second GPS unit for use with your City Navigator or City Select CD."

"Can I use City Select North America, MetroGuide Canada and TOPO Canada on the GPSMAP 60CS at the same time?"
A: "Yes, you can load maps from more than one CD at the same time by creating a map set that consists of map segments from each CD. However, if you have more than one map loaded for the same area, the GPS will display maps according to an internal hierarchy: City Select will be displayed in preference to MetroGuide which will be displayed in preference to TOPO [and City Nav in preference to City Select.]

"Will Canadian MetroGuide v4 provide autorouting on the GPSMAP 60CS?"
A: [From Garmin] "Yes, Canadian MetroGuide V4 WILL provide turn by turn routing on the GPSMAP 60CS. However, the US MetroGuide does NOT provide turn by turn routing on a GPS."

"Will the GPSMAP 60CS support tide data?"
A: [From Garmin] "The 60CS will not have tide data in the basic hardware, but anytime a customer downloads Blue Chart data, they will get tide information for that area. We are moving in this direction so that we do not take up memory for users who only use the system on land and this will also make it easier for the tide data to be updated when the customer updates their Blue Chart data"

USB GPS / PC Compatibility
Q: "I have connected my USB GPS unit to the PC but the USB GPS device does not show up in the "Save To" or "Send To" dialog boxes within MapSource. What is wrong?"
A: Click here for Garmin's FAQ user tips

"What are the main differences between the GPSMAP 60CS and the GPSMAP 76CS?"
A: "Internal map memory (the 60CS has 56MB for map storage, the 76CS has 115MB; physical size & shape; tide prediction (the 60CS supports tide data from BlueChart CDs, it is built in to the 76CS); floatability (the 60CS will not float, the 76CS will)."
