Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
Most of the times, when a route is calculated by selecting Follow Road and Faster Time, with many via points, the unit calculates the route and the display gets stuck at 100% complete. No other button functions and the unit cannot be turned off by normal means. Either the batteries have to be pulled out or the power button is held for about 10 seconds. The unit then turns off but the display gradually fades off. When the unit is switched on again, the route calculation starts again. If the Enter button is not pressed repeated in the beginning of route calculation the unit goes on as described above.
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

I had similar problem and the solution is very simple. After several e-mail exchanges with Garmin I got the crucial point - the fact is that GPS units, when calculating routes, use YOUR CURRENT LOCATION as the starting point, and NOT the first point in the route! So for exampe in my case I was located in Toronto, Canada, and I was trying to caculate route from Lugano, Switzerland, to Bergamo, Italy. The device, however, added Toronto to the route and was trying to calculate a leg from Toronto to Lugano, across the Atlantic :-) I'm not joking, it's true. So the solution is simple - you switch the GPS off and provide the device with a virtual location, close to the stat of the route you'd like to calcuate, and then it wil work. Of course, you must have the correct maps downloaded into the device, complete with route calculation data (they are included in City Navigator Europe, for example). Hope it helps.
