Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx Powerup Problem

My Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx won't reliably power up.  Sometimes I have to repeatedly hold down the PWR switch to get it to power up.  It sometimes takes several minutes.  I have the latest software, I've tried taking out the batteries for 30 minutes and that sometimes helps.  Sometimes applying power through the USB cable or RS-232 gets it to power up.  Lately I'm having problems powering down.  I don't think it is the power switch because the switch works fine when dimming the backlight.  A friend of mine has a identical unit and has similar problems.  Is this a common problem?   Any suggestions?

Re: Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx Powerup Problem

I suddenly had the same problem. Here a page with the explanations : I removed the cache back to clean power connectors, tighten the cache back to properly adjust the power connectors on the map. Now everything is working properly.

When i turn on my gpsmap 60 cx it never acquires the satellites,it stays on this screen.

I had this on my Tom-Tom once. I think I reset it using the poke-a-pen-in reset switch, turned it off, charged it up with USB cable, updated it from the site, then went outside with it and it then finally acquired.

A stolen GPSMAP 60Cx is it posible to locate it once it is turned on???

Sorry, no. Report serial number and internal ID number(if known) to Garmin and the Police. If a map is ever unlocked for it or it comes in for repair at least Garmin will know.

Garmin 60cx or 60csx

The marine version of the 60 series is the 76. Same insides, different case. I assume that's what they meant.

Either one will geocache (actually, any will but it's easier in some units than others.).

Gpsmap 60c can not acquire satellites even when left outside for 15 minutes in a place where it usually has no problem. Problem happened overnight.

Are there any there any satellites listed on the satellite overview page?

What is the GPS SW Version listed by the unit?
