Don't fiddle and drive Seriously, an extremely powerful feature of any decent car system are the voice prompts. You rarely have to even look at it while driving. Before the 370, I thought this was a gimic, but I have a hiking GPS (an older Garmin Vista) and I now can't imagine using it for the car. It doesn't look like the 60CSx has voice prompts and this feature alone should convince you to get a car based system.

I earlier posted that maps and charts are the only way to go for situational awareness and trip planning with a GPS as a backup only. Well after seeing a 370 in use here, I think I was wrong to suggest that you can't rely on these things.
Right. I kept meaning to buy a better map when on my ED, but just never bothered. I was having too much fun If driving in a VERY remote area, get a good map, but there are no such places in Europe.

Here's a tip: look at http://www.gpscity.com and the RAM mounts.
I've spent altogether too much time considering mounts Thanks, I'll take a closer look at these...
