The most common cause of consistent offset is DATUM selection. The DATUM was likely set to WGS84 at the time of recording then viewed later in NAD27, or vice versa.

Geocaching.com uses WGS84. The USGS generally uses NAD27

Also see this Garmin page. The DATUM is set under Settings | System if I recall correctly.

How and what steps to install a more detailed map of USA to Garmin GPS Map60CSx?


Hello,

To get more detailed mapping for 60CSx the easiest way is just to purchase them on a pre-loaded microSD card. You can also buy mapping on DVD but this requires you to load your own SD and is a little bit more work, but this would give you the ability to view them on your PC and create custom routes. All these items can be obtained from www.gpscity.com or www.gpscity.ca.

Hope this helps!

How to plot my map in this gps


Hello,

The 60 CSX dosent support custom maps but if you are looking to plan a route or plot waypoints the easiest way is to acquire a copy of Garmins TOPO disks and do all of this on the PC. You can also do this on the unit using " Mark Waypoint".

Hope this helps!

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Route calculation Error on Garmin GPSmap 60CSx


Try re-setting your gps by simultaneously pressing the Enter and Page buttons while turning it on if that doesn't work check your firmware i found the latest one v 3.90 would shut off my gps when recalculating v 3.70 is stable Garmin know that the new firmware can cause problems

Cant view map on gps


When you go past 4gigs on a micro SD card it becomes HC (high capacity I believe) and will not work with most Garmins. The 2 gig's the limit.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


Have you highlighted the section with the map select tool, then hit the Transfer to GPS button? If you do, what happens then? Does it freeze?

If you are able to send routes and waypoints to the unit, you should be able to send selected unlocked maps as well.

Route calculation error


I was having the same problem and contacted Garmin support.

What I had done was turned off the Basemap that came with the unit. I only had the mapsource map street map on which I had purchased separately.

The technician basically said the unit needed the basemap to "locate itself". Somehow the basemap supports any maps you purchase separately. That seemed odd but once I turned the Basemap back on it calculated the routes and the error message went away.

If you have the Basemap off, try turning it on from the Map Setup - Information window.

Hope this helped.
