you can buy online http://www.eastgear.com from singapore.
after you ordered, they will send you thru FedEx singapore by 1~3 working days.
ofcourse shipping fee will be charged, but I think 60CSx + shipping fee, the amount will be more more better than you buy in malaysia.

http://www.trendsmobile.com also has sell garmin product, free delivery to malaysia but they never sell 60cSx.

RM1500 is about SGD638. If 60CSx is selling at SGD495, the difference is SGD143. It's not much but it should cover shipping.

I'm sure the 60CSx price has dropped further. i can call tomorrow to check on the latest price, and find out the cost of shipping, by Fedex, and Singpost (both with tracking).

You can save the shipping if you meet me somewhere in Johor. :)

Hi tlchuan

Just for your reference.

I just checked with Blazer Electronics Centre at Sim Lim Tower, they quoted me 60CSx at SGD500, it went up slightly

Food for thoughts. Why 60Csx and not 60Cs?

Is the electronic compass and barometer that important in tracking? I remember having to shut them off to conserve power espically when your travel are many hours from the next battery fix. I know you can carry a solar power charger but that is extra precious weight on our back. The only other pls that I can see but not applicable to my use is Skydiving features.

Any opionion for experience 60Csx users.

Tks.
