How and what steps to install a more detailed map of USA to Garmin GPS Map60CSx?


Hello,

To get more detailed mapping for 60CSx the easiest way is just to purchase them on a pre-loaded microSD card. You can also buy mapping on DVD but this requires you to load your own SD and is a little bit more work, but this would give you the ability to view them on your PC and create custom routes. All these items can be obtained from www.gpscity.com or www.gpscity.ca.

Hope this helps!

Using dnr garmin or map source how do I transfer from excel


I've just had to do this. Somewhat annoying and I'm sure there must be a quicker way. Let me know if you find one. <br /><br />Firstly you need ArcGIS or something that can create .shp files. Load the Excel file into this. In Arc you need to right click the table and display the x y data (just to make sure it's all okay). Then save as a layer. Then export as an .shp file. <br /><br />You can the open the.shp in DNRGarmin and upload to your GPS..,<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

GPS position is offset from map location


This could be because your datum and your posistion format. Under your menu go to setup, then units and make sure you have the correct info set in there for your area. NAD27 Canada would be the one you are looking for. Give that a try and see if it works. If it is still off, consult the manuals that came with your topo and see if it says what datum it uses.

My map on my garmine 60csx doesnt line up with the actual locations


The most common cause of consistent offset is DATUM selection. The DATUM was likely set to WGS84 at the time of recording then viewed later in NAD27, or vice versa.

Geocaching.com uses WGS84. The USGS generally uses NAD27

Also see this Garmin page. The DATUM is set under Settings | System if I recall correctly.

I think all the Garmins allow to do is generate a waypoint list on your PC and upload THAT to the GPS, according to what Garmin told me about my Streetpilot C340. You also need Mapsource on the PC.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


Have you highlighted the section with the map select tool, then hit the Transfer to GPS button? If you do, what happens then? Does it freeze?

If you are able to send routes and waypoints to the unit, you should be able to send selected unlocked maps as well.
