    What is the difference between these two units? The Garmin website
    doesn't seem to know about the CX but Amazon sells it.

    It has a page:

    The difference is the Cx has a color display and also uses a microSD
    card for expansion memory. The next step up would be the 60/76 Cx/CSx,
    those have the SiRF III chip set. The 60/76 "x" series are arguably the
    best handhelds on the market (same hardware and software, different
    cases and button layout). The speed and sensitivity that the SiRF III
    gives the receiver is almost breathtaking if your used to the earlier

    If you go to the product page:

    and use the Product Comparison (upper left menus), that is a good way to
    compare the features on those.

    Thanks, Jack. Very useful pages. In the meantime, I also found that you
    can do a lot of comparison using REI's tool at
