The Compass page becomes tailored to geocaching while the user is navigating toward a geocache



 During navigation toward a        geocache, a note or hint about the    cache is readily accessible (if the cache waypoint contains such information in its comment field).



When a geocache is found, the unit will mark the cache found, log an entry into the outdoor calendar, and provide an option that—with one button press—will show the next-closest cache.




Garmin-GPSMap 60CS                


The GPSMAP® 60CS and GPSMAP 60C are new all-purpose units—packed with exciting new features and delivering the kind of color that consumers want in their handheld GPS’s. These lightweight, rugged, waterproof units raise the bar to offer a 256-color, highly reflective display that provides easy viewing in almost any lighting condition. This transreflective TFT provides excellent viewing while maximizing your battery life (20 hours, typical use).

What does the "MAP" mean on some of our prices?
In order to give you our discount GPS pricing, we must advertise using MAP. MAP stands for "Minimum Advertised Price." Due to agreements with our manufacturers, we are not allowed to advertise our discount GPS prices on many of their products. This is because our discount GPS prices are below their minimum allowed advertise price. This price is called the "MAP" price.  In order for us to show you our everyday low discount GPS prices, you will need to add the item to your shopping cart by clicking the "Our Price" button on some of our items. You are in no way obligated to purchase an item when you place it in your shopping cart and it may be removed at any time.  We're sure that the discount GPS prices you find at OpenSky will mean your items will never leave the shopping cart.

Because OpenSky GPS only stocks some of the bigger selling GPS systems, you may not see a GPS system that fits your specific need. If you are looking for any particular GPS that we do not have listed, please drop us an email with what GPS system  or type of GPS systems you are interested in. We will take special request and be happy to find  those GPS systems that you are looking for.  If you are looking for a car GPS  for your company vehicle and will be purchasing more than three systems, please request a bulk discount by sending an email to our customer service department with "bulk GPS systems" in he subject line.
