Problem downloading maps to my 76csx

My 76 csx has lost my downloaded maps a couple of times while I am out on trail.NOT good.
Now I cant even upload new maps to gps from computer.
It crashes (tells me that it was unable to finish) even when I minimize the amount of information I am trying to send.
I think I should try a master reset. How do I do that on a 76csx and is there a reason I should be concerned about doing a master reset

With unit off, press and hold ENTER and PAGE while powering on to perform a master reset.

Doing a master reset will erase and data in the device and restore it to factory defaults. So if you have any waypoints/tracks/routes you may want to back them up first.

You may want to update your mapsoure software first and see if that helps the issue. If not reinstall the software.

oh and double check your micro SD card to make sure its not damaged and is inserted all the way in.

My 60 csx wont upload map coordinates from a map progamme thats allows this. The compass arrow often points in the wrong direction and the unit on the Go To page does not reliably take me to the desired...


The upload problem is generally communications settings in the software you're using to upload. You could try the freeware EasyGPS to make sure you can really communicate with the unit.

The "invisible waypoint" problem, if that's what you are describing, is generally a function of distance (ie, the unit only shows the closest points). Try sorting by name.

While down loading maps the 76CSX just quit. The batteries are good. When I turn on the GPS it starts then fads away like there is no power, yet I have tryed 2 sets of new batteries.


It sounds like a corrupted upload. Reset the unit and retry the upload.

Usually reset is done by pushing page and enter while powering up

Topo maps a mess of meaningless lines


Sorry for late reply. You need to select an area on your topo map prior to downloading it. For example, if you plan to go to Algonquin Bice Lake (access point 4), then you need to select the map around the area (starting from) Kearney upto the Magnetawan Lake and beyond. Mark waypoints from the put-in to the campsite on Bice Lake (best to compare of the topo and Algonquin canoeing map). Then you can click Transfer, click Send to Device (GPS 76cs should appear) to download it. On the GPS, enter the Find Waypoint button and you should be able to see those waypoints. Good luck for your next trip.

Using a DGPS on a 76csx


there is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.

regards,

frankie, poland.
