    I'm looking for a GPS for my bike to store,follow tracks, etc... I have the opportunity to get either the Oregon 200 (without mount) or the C60cx (with mount) for around the same price. Can anyone point me in the direction of which one I should choose? any why?

    Thanks for any input!

    For the same price, I'd get the 60csx. The screen on the Oregon is slightly bigger, but it has a higher pixel count and tends to be dimmer in sunlight. The touch screen is a negative in my opinion. The only useful feature that the Oregon has and the 60 doesn't is Custom Maps - you can transfer paper trail maps to it.

    The 60 can be fed direct with 12vdc but the Oregon uses a 5v USB connection so you need an external voltage regulator.

    Both models are discontinued and should be available relatively cheap.

    I'd agree about the 60. Many guys have them. It'll do all you want and more.
