The Garmin GPSMAP 60 is a handheld GPS device designed for the outdoor enthusiast and falls in the lower half of the GPS 60 series offered by Garmin.  This model has many features seen in the upper models, however it features a more affordable hi-res monochrome display rather than a color display.  The robust and waterproof casing makes it a perfect choice for virtually any adventure, at an affordable cost. There is a built-in basemap with automatic routing and turn by turn prompts to help guide you to your destination.  The four-level greyscale 1.5" x 2.2" screen has a bright LED backlight for easy visibility in sunlight or darkness.  There is 24 MB of internal memory allowing you to store marine, topo and city street maps from optional MapSource mapping software and has serial and USB port for easy connectivity to your computer.  Other features include geocaching features, indoor and outdoor games, an alarm clock, sunrise/sunset and moon phase tables, and optimal hunting and fishing times.
