Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
My GPS has become hard to turn on and off. It only works after a series of attempts. Plus, when I turn it off, the screen goes off, but there's a buzzing sound and it only stops when I take the batteries out.
I sure appreciate your help.
I have the same problem - most of the time when I try to turn it off, it keeps beeping continuously until I take the batteries out. Occasionally when I turn it on it freezes up.
Go to the Garmin Web site's home page, avoid staring to long at the hot chick and click on "On The Trail" .. "Mapping Handhelds" .. scroll down to the second row far right and click on the 60CSx. You will then see the 60CSx page, look to the right and click on "Updates & Dowdloads", on doing so you will now see four downloads to choose from. The one you will need is "GPS Chipset Type G Ver. 2.90 as of Nov 27, 2006" if you follow this you shouldn't have any problems. If however you do i'll keep an eye on this page and try to help, this is my first GPS and also had the same issue.

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.

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.

SOURCE: It does not switch on.
Does it switch on if you press the button really hard? I've seen some with the underside of the rubber plunger not cut squarely, making for a poor contact with the switch on the circuit board. On some I've replaced the entire rubber cap (from wrecked units, not available as a spare part though) or very carefully built p the tip of the plunger with 2 part epoxy glue that sets hard, like Araldite. If still in warranty, contact Garmin of course.

Calibrate the compass (Main menu --> Setup --> Calibration --> Compass), follow the instructions on the screen.
Also, see page 50 of the manual.
Calibration must be done outside - stay clear of any large metallic object (e.g. car).

Testimonial: "Many thanks for doing Garmin's job - In my opinion the Garmin hardware is great - the software, documentation and technical support are very poor."
