Product Description
The Honeywell TE653ELW Complete Weather Forecaster with Atomic Clock combines a stylish appearance with invaluable weather and time information. Featuring a 24-hour barometric pressure history chart and large graphical weather forecasting icons (sunny, cloudy, rainy, etc.), this clock and weather forecaster can monitor temperature and humidity in up to three remote locations.

With the main display unit measuring 7.24 x 4.96 x 1.31 inches (WxHxD), the clock includes one TS33C wireless temperature sensor and can utilize up to a total of three remote sensors for remote monitoring. (Additional sensors are sold separately.) The sensors have an effective unobstructed transmission range of approximately 100 feet.

The TE653ELW also includes an atomic clock that never requires resetting. The time updates automatically each day within the continental U.S. via a radio signal transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado, adjusting the clock to within one second of official government time. It even automatically adjusts for Daylight Savings Time. Other features include a moon phase display; a programmable ice warning alarm for Channel 1; and comfort level indicators and minimum/maximum memory for temperature and humidity. When the remote sensor is powered by two AA alkaline batteries, the unit has an outside temperature range of minus 4 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit, and minus 38 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit if lithium batteries are used. For humidity monitoring, the clock has an indoor and outdoor range of 25 to 90 percent. (The two AA batteries required for the sensor, and the two AA batteries required for the main unit, are not included.)

The GPSMap 60Cx features the powerful SiRF GPS navigation chip for supreme accuracy in all conditions.

You can use the 60Cx’s memory card slot with preprogrammed microSD cards from Garmin (sold separately) that provide topographic maps, city streets, and nautical charts. In fact, the unit is compatible with most Garmin MapSource products including BlueChart, City Navigator, U.S. Topo 24K, and U.S. Topo and Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots. The unit comes preloaded with an Americas autoroute basemap that provides automatic routing capabilities including highways, exits, and tide data. There’s also a preloaded marine point database. You can even get turn-by-turn directions when you’re driving, and an integrated trip computer provides odometer, stopped time, moving average, overall average, total time, max speed, and more.

The 60Cx’s 2.6-inch, 256-color TFT color display is designed to present mapping and trip information clearly and accurately in any lighting conditions. Plus, the case is lightweight, rugged, and water resistant to IEC 60529 IPX7 standards (can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes). When using two AA alkaline batteries, you’ll get up to 30 hours of battery life from the unit.

Another key feature of the 60Cx is the 10,000 point automatic track log; 20 saved tracks (500 points each) let you retrace your path in both directions. There’s also a large-numbers option for easy viewing, as well as a dual-position display mode. The also unit includes built-in celestial tables for best times to fish and hunt, plus sun and moon calculations.

The 60Cx’s trip computer provides odometer, stopped time, moving average, overall average, total time, max speed, and more. Meanwhile, a fast processor allows the 60Cx to provide quick auto-routing, turn-by-turn directions, and audio alerts when you use the optional MapSource software, which can be stored on the unit’s included 64 MB microSD card. Downloading information is quick with the USB or serial port interfaces. Using the dedicated serial port, the 60Cx can share navigation instructions with repeaters, plotters, and autopilots. The four-position rocker pad and dedicated high-use buttons make navigating through the unit’s features easy, even when your fingers are cold or wet.

Finally, the GPSMap 60Cx is packed with some extra fun features. An integrated outdoor calendar provides ideal hunting and fishing times, as well as moon rise/set/location information. There is a dedicated geocaching mode for those of you into the hot GPS community treasure hunt game. Finally, there are indoor/outdoor GPS games to help you and your friends enjoy the outdoors.
