I would suggest that you try the following master reset and software
update.
Please be aware that if you have not used your gps for a while it will
take time to download fresh information.
With the unit switched off please press and hold QUIT + MENU + ZOOM OUT
+ POWER
You will lose any data stored on the unit so back your unit up first. I
would also suggest running the latest software update from the following
link, if you have not already done so http://www.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

Once all this is done please leave your unit with a clear view of the
sky and allow it to acquire a satellite fix. This may take time so
please be patient. Once you have a fix leave the unit for a further 40
minute to achieve a good almanac update.

Compass reading on GPS 60cSx about 30 degrees too high


Calibrate the compass (Main menu --> Setup --> Calibration --> Compass), follow the instructions on the screen.
Also, see page 50 of the manual.
Calibration must be done outside - stay clear of any large metallic object (e.g. car).

The coordinates that I get are 30 metres off from the other GPS units that we geocache with. My settings must be off.


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.

I have a Garmin 60csx that won't power up


On my GPSmap 60CSx the screen fades away after powering on - just like the battery is empty. Changed battery and used USB power. Always the same. When removing  the 2GB micro SD memory card then it comes up. Replaced the memory card and now it powers up fine. Seems that the memory card is damaged or causes a short circuit.

Yes...but they now charge $150.00 for the screen. The screen isn't covered by their warrenty. If you just need the screen replaced because of scratches...try this...it works great and costs about 20.00 or so shipped. http://www.janvil.net/item.asp?cID=32&PID=31
