Question about Garmin 010-C0495-00 TOPO Canada - Manitoba microSD Card Maps Software

1 Answer

GPS position is offset from map location

I have just discovered that my GPS (GPSMAP 60CS) is giving positions that are westerly of the location on MAPSOURCE Topo Canada maps of Newfoundland and Labrador. For example, I cross a stream at N47 
18 26.3 W53 14 53.4 (GPS position) but according to the MAPSOURCE topo map the location is N47 18 26.4 W53 14 50.0. The difference is ~70 m. 

Does this represent an inaccuracy with the MAPSOURCE TOPO Canada maps? 

Thank you

    Thanks for your input but that is not the problem. It appears to me that the maps are accurate in central Canada but there are deviations out west and east.

This could be because your datum and your posistion format. Under your menu go to setup, then units and make sure you have the correct info set in there for your area. NAD27 Canada would be the one you are looking for. Give that a try and see if it works. If it is still off, consult the manuals that came with your topo and see if it says what datum it uses.

Sat has not been used for a year how do I get it going again

I suspect the satnav has been left with the switch in the off position. This still drains some power as it is more like a sleep mode.
The reset position is actually fully off.
Put the switch in this position and give it a good charge.

Gpsmap 520S Lcd Display Broken

I would type in google each device and see if they take the same part number, or if you have the gps apart, look on the back of the screen, usually on the metal back plate, and it says the part number..but you would have to take the other one apart also to see..

How can I register & get map update?

with the unit off

plug in your gps into the computer using the usb connector cable ( most are the same usb cables cameras use to connect to your computer)

once connected your computer will find the new hardware

now go to

Register your unit there and it will let you unlock your maps

It will tell you to download WebUpDater utility to transfer maps

The Garmins have a SECURITY LOCATION feature in them, just in case its stolen or lost.....

the only way to unlock your Nuvi when you lock it with your Pin Number is to go back to your Security Location......your Security Location will be where you Setup your GPS at.. could be work or Home just remember where... if locked you would have to go with-in 50 meters of Security Location to unlock or send your unit back to Garmin with proper receipt of ownership

Ho I update maps for my 205w GPS

You'll need to install the software on your computer first. Then you will need to connect your Garmin with a USB cable just like you would a camera to upload pictures. The computer should find your GPS and finish the install and give you a choice to update your map database. This usually is a fee based update. Not too expensive and maybe you can purchase a lifetime update deal through e-bay or amazon etc. Good luck!

Child put in random code and locked nuvi 260 gps

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you can remember the PIN Code previously set on your device you will be able to change the Pin on your device easily. You can change the PIN on the unit by doing the following:
All Nuvi's excluding 3xx and 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Security
  5. Touch On/Off under Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.

When the Garmin security lock is set it locates the units current GPS location.
If you are trying to change the Garmin Lock and are not within the same location to where the Garmin Lock was set you will need to revert back to this GPS position.

Once at this position you will not be prompted to enter the PIN Code when starting the device up and can change the code as you please
