buying garmin 60 csx

I'm looking into buying a GPS (garmin 60csx)
Any issues buying from the US (or elsewhere) instead of Australia?
Possible warranty issues?
Anything to watch out for?
I'm buying it, primarily, to use in South/Central America though plan to use it at home too.

Thanks.

Check out what the mapping is like for WA. My experience is that its much less comprehensive than Magellan mapping outside of the Perth metro area.

Don't know about South America though.

You might save a few $ by droping the S - the 60Cx will do all you need.

Tracks 4 Australia and Shonky Maps should have enought detail to get you happin anywhere in OZ. Yes they are Gramin maps - free..

If you want world coverage I think you'll find garmin is best .. and Bobs maps are getting better with contributions (track logs) from users.
