    Same exact problem - just picked this thing up yesterday ---used "5 times"--- was new in June. What's weird is that it didn't do it every time until I put new firmware in it a couple hours ago...it did do it at random before that.

    I'm going to try to get the reciept from the guy and hope to send in for a new one at best....anyone else see this problem?

This problem is Mac OSX related and can be solved using Cleaneject http://www.javawa.nl/cleaneject_en.html
The OSX operating system creates several invisible files and folders on USB-disks, camera's and GPS devices and the Garmin GPS devices can't cope with these invisible files and folders.
Cleaneject erases the invisible files and folders.

My unit would make a non stop beep... not sure if same as buzzing described above.  I was told to reformat my memory card but before doing so I looked at it with a file browser and found three files there that did not belong.  Some sort of system files put there, no doubt, my my Mac when I plugged it in to copy out all my track files.  I deleted the three Mac files, put the card back into the unit, and all is good.  Would be great if Garmin recognized that there is another OS out there.

I had a similar problem when I upgraded to 3.90. First, after upgrading, my gps would not restart. Just by chance, I took the SD card out and the unit started up without problems.
When I put the SD card back in, the unit would shut off, but would make the buzzing sound you describe until I removed a battery.
Finally, I completely reformatted the SD card and reloaded all of my maps. This seemed to take care of the problem.

    Well done, I have removed the sd card and copied the content. I formatted the card and reloaded the folders and the problem was solved.

My car side mirror is making buzing noise.what can be the problem


If your side-view mirror is the type that has electrically operated mirror glass, an internal deicing / defrosting heater or a lamp for cornering / directional light, it may be malfunctioning. Make sure that any switch used to control the device(s) is on an "off" position and not stuck. If the control or switch was exposed to water due to an open window, etc., allow time to dry completely.

A motorized device that is buzzing usually indicates that it can not move any further - even though it is being commanded to continue (via switch or sensor). If allowed to remain to be powered, the car battery may be discharged, the motor could fail, the switch or wiring could overheat and fail - and in the worst case scenario - cause a fire.

If it stops buzzing and no longer functions, it may have opened the fuse. If you are unable to stop the buzzing noise, you should have a mechanic look at and repair it. I hope this helps and good luck!

The sound on my garmin zumo 550 is not working right it has been working fine. But this morning when I hooked it to my Harley ultra classic it was reel low upon further check it was only coming through...


sounds like the Audio patch cord, i had around 5 of them that do that ...sometimes i hear the music thru one speaker, cracking noise sometimes it works when the wire is twisted, but i would try a new patch cord first.....my patch cord worked fine on some stereo units others break up

You can't turn the navigation back on with this method. You must once again highlight the waypoint you want to navigate to in your Fine>Waypoints screen and then press the "Go to" highlighted button on the screen.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites


I found the solution that fixed my 60CSx. You need to make sure you have the latest chipset installed on your device. Go to

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00422-00&cID=145&pID=310

and download the chipset type G ver 2.9.

After you have loaded it on your 60CSx, you should be good to go. Just turn it on like you normally do and now you'll see your device retrieving locks w/ the satellites.

Let me know if this helps you out.
