Chris - I agree. I found the magnifyer to be next to useless and have removed it.
I took your suggestion and installed the 60CSX on a RAM mount I installed in the Cup Holder. Using the large lettering option, I find it is a great spot to have it - right at your fingertips and very easy to glance at whenever you want to check your speed etc.
I'm no expert on all its features yet, but I absolutely love having it on the AI. It adds anotherr dimension - excellent when checking speed under sail in particular
I believe I have found an even better place to mount to GPS - but you need the dodger for it to work. I have quickly come to the realisation that the dodger is a very useful accessory and once you have it installed correctly (I believe the Hobie instructions need modifying to achieve this, but either way it is not particularly difficult), you can simply clip the GPS to the top centre of the dodger - which just happens to be directly in front of your chest/neck area.
In fact, there would be sufficient hanging space available to have a number of instruments in this superb position!!
When I first used the dodger, I found it made life a bit difficult in getting to the lines and adjusting the mirage drive etc, but now that I've taken a bit of time to play with it I believe those issues can be overcome.
The other significant benefit of mounting the GPS in that position is that it is high above the water and well protected in most circumstances from any water whatsoever
I'm sorry you had to wait so long to get some feedback on the magnifyer but I didn't want to submit a report until I was convinced one way or the other.
