Garmin GPSmap 60CSx review | Google Earth
Vierhouten, The Veluwe - Route projection on Google Earth
Open Field Vierhouten
Arriving at my destination
Once I arrived at my first destination, an open field with some beautiful, mature trees, I heard a beep coming from my GPS. At the same time the GPSmap 60CSx notified me through its monitor that I had arrived at my destination. The location was the exact location I had selected through Google Earth, right in front of one of the trees on the sandy area. An even more precise position fix can be obtained by purchasing an external antenna. The standard quad helix antenna is up to 32 feet precise. When I finished walking the complete route, 1.5x larger due to heading errors, I connected the Garmin to my pc via the USB cable, to download the route with the help of the included software.
Projecting my route to Google Earth
After downloading the route it was a piece of cake to project the route on Google Earth and to see the created waypoints. I had initially made waypoints to create a route, but I also created more waypoints during walking this route, mainly at places where I took pictures. Despite the fact that uploading the route was somewhat difficult, everything else that came after that was easy. The Garmin GPSmap 60CSx in combination with the MapSource software and Google Earth is an extremely powerful and enhanced GPS receiver.
