Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
My coordinates are not accurate. I have a garmin GPSMap 60CSX. I have access to a bunch of garmin etrex and when we geocache, the etrex are accurate and the 60CSX is 30 yards off the target. I must have my settings wrong but I have tried a variety of settings changes and compared the settings on the etrex to the 60CSX and I can't figure out why my coordinates are out. Any ideas?
Yes, have you enabled WAAS on your 60CSx? WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, according to the instruction manual an FAA funded service to improve overall integrity of the GPS signal through North America.
If you are in an area which is not serviced by ground stations, having WAAS enabled may degrade the signal from the GPS satellites. Try enabling or disabling this feature.
To do so, acess the System Startup Page. On the Setup Menu page, highlight the System icon and press Enter. WAAS is the second available setting on this page.
Make sure your batteries are fresh; I prefer alkalines in this model. Set the battery type in the System Setup Page, same page as noted for WAAS above.
Another thought is to be sure you have the latest Garmin software installed. Visit their site to download the latest and greatest, free, of course.

Geocaching is a
real-world, outdoor sporting activity using GPS-enabled devices. Participants
navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to hide and seek
the geocache (container) hidden at that location (anywhere in the world).
