I am late on this but I bought the 60CSx a few years ago. It rode on my Road Glide on a Ram bar mount, with a 3" extension and quick mount and was very satisfied.
I also hung it in my car on a suction cup.
Also used it off the bike/car and as you was my major criteria for my first GPS. It is very rugged, well built, with a card holds more map area then you need, and is waterproof to 3'. I even had the magnifying glass on the goose neck and it was very cool. The Fishing and lake area is a nice feature and is one great GPS for hiking, fishing, and boating.
I guess you can tell I am very high on the unit.
As I have learned 2800 mAh rechargeable batteries power it forever, and one of the best but pricey things you can do for it, and any battery powered device. The higher mAh you can find the better. I don't know where the technology is now maybe 3200? I use a brand called POWEREX. I have 16 of them and they LOVE to work.
Then came the LT with that damn mount sticking out calling for something in there. Thus a 2820 was born.
I love it, the screen size is nice, the OEM mount is nice but it may find a BMW Round el covering it, and a shelf will be born. I can get the XM antenna next to it then.
Anyway enjoy your new 60CSx it is a very nice unit for sure.
You going to use a clutch/brake ball mount?

I thought I would dislike the GPSmap 60 for the road but it is actually pretty easy to live with on the bike. I definitely needed a GPS for hiking and I also wanted it to do double-duty on the LT. We have the Nuvi for car trips too.
I'll probably eventually get a Zumo for the bike, but at present the dual-purpose nature of the GPSmap fit the bill "like a glove".
