For example, a 60Cx with the SiRF III chipset locked onto the satellites much faster than the 60C. Many folks getting an "x" model were surprised to get a satellite lock while inside their houses.GizmoGuy411 wrote:As far as I know, both models use the same GPS chip set.

Of course! I was not even paying attention to the fact that the model he mentioned was not one of the Sirf III GPS chipset models. I must have been confusing the "S" with the "x"! Actually that should have been my very first point. I'll revise my post above and add that fact to the list!
And yes... I get a signal lock inside many structures, whereas my old eMap would not even get a sig lock in my vehicle, unless it was on the dash, or had an external antenna attached!
