Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CS GPS Receiver
Hi, Thank you for your time and service! My problem is I have a brand new Garmin 60csx and am having trouble with getting it to communicate with my computers. I have installed the software that came with the unit on both computers. I have attempted to use Mapsource and also Delorme's Topo 4. I have always had no trouble with using my Garman Explorist or Magellan gps to these programs. I have checked to make sure the baud rates and the com ports match up.
Do you have any suggestions?
Make sure your using a USB cable, specifically a USB cable with a mini connector on the end. Specifically, a USB cable with the second one from the left in this picture:
If you are using the USB port, you should have no need for setting COM ports.
Another technique you can use (which I just figured out today) was to place the Garmin Unit in "USB Mass Storage Mode". This allows you to offload saved tracks, but I don't think you can download waypoints or other things that the WayPoint Manager allows.
You can access this option via the Garmin Unit
Goto: "Main Menu" -> "Setup" -> "Interface". Press Down to get to the button "USB Mass Storage". Plug in that USB Mini cord, and you have a thumb drive!
