Hi Mbike, I am interested in getting a GPS devices too. But I am an absolute novice in this area. So I haven't get one as of today since I am completely overwhelmed by whats available in the market. Hope you can give me some guidance here. :D

Can this device be used in HK? Where can I find maps to upload into the device? I am looking for one which I can use for driving, city walking, hiking in HK. And ideally also for travelling overseas such as in US, Europe, China etc. Would this be a suitable one? Any others you can recommend?

How does this compare to the color version: https://www.offroute.com/product/view_p ... atID=14347 apart from color & the price? It seems that this one is also on special at a very attractive price. Would you recommend it?

Many thanks,
Angus Lau

Long time no see. I am a novice of using GPS, but Titan have one GPS. The GPS can be used at any location on earth (including HK) where satellite signal can be received.

You can see relevant post as below:

Garmin GPSMAP 60, 60CSX can be uploaded with map, but I am not sure whether the screen is too small for driving. 60CSX have Automatic routing (turn by turn routing on roads) function. To my best knowledge, GPS is not suitable to be used in high rise building area as the satellite signal will be obstructed by buildings. Some hikers from forum said they connect GPS to Pocket PC and the result is reliable. I guess if you are familar to upload map to GPS, then you can use the GPS to go everywhere, but you have to find a suitable map.
GPSMAP 60CSX have colour screen so it drains more batteries power. GPSMAP 60 is B&W and it drains less power. Both use AA batteries which is easier to be found.

I think GPSMAP 60 CSX is more suitable to you as you can save the map to micro SD card. And colour screen is much easier to be seen. For myself, GPSMAP 60 is sufficient as I will use it to record the mountain biking riding or running record.
I heard that

GPSMAP 60CX & 60CSX use high-sensitivity receiver which have better receiving power.

That may be a concern... :P Anyway to workaround? If we buy locally, does it usually include HK & Asia maps free?? :roll:

Thanks for the info, mbike! :D Do you know if these models has sound hints for navigating? I heard from some of my fiends that they mostly only listen to the instructions for driving. So a small screen may not be a problem if it gives verbal instruction... :roll:

I am not too sure whether these model available in HK (local version). There is one online shop in HK http://www.shopeasy.com.hk/catalogCA_00 ... rt_b5.html
You should buy a automotive GPS http://www.offroute.com/category/catego ... x_ID=14343
You can try GARMIN Nuvi 300 China and HK version http://www.shopeasy.com.hk/productPR_00 ... rt_b5.html
It have text to speech function.
The NUVI 370 form offroute.com sell US$620 with preloaded City Navigator® NT street maps for both North America and Europe, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. http://www.offroute.com/product/view_pr ... atID=14343
