Any recommandations ?
« on: August 15, 2018, 09:59:00 »
Hi
My old toggle etrax just died (etrax 20 the orange one ). I need a great value for money replacement unit. I am looking for a more advanced one but not necessarily the best one in the marked since I am on a budget. Any recommendations for units or where to buy it ?

What's your budget?  If you're coming from the eTrex line, chances are you like using buttons vs touch screen (as many of us do).  You should graduate into the GPSMAP6x series of units.  At the moment, there are no really good sales on locally (that I know of), but keep an eye on the SAIL flyers / website to see if the units get marked down.  I've seen them go as low as $249.

The GPSMAP64s at SAIL is currently at 25% off, but still WAY up there in price at $329.99

However, GPSCity online (Calgary Alberta based) has them for a very good price of $289.95 for a new unit.

Or you could hunt Kijji or eBay for a second hand unit. MAP60csx is my preference, but they are hard to come by these days....

Cabela's has the 64s on sale for $269.  I picked one up as an upgrade to the 60Cx and it's a great unit.
