Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx

Garmin MAP 60CSx

I bought my Garmin CSx in April 2006. It's worked fine until about a month ago, when I started "losing" the red directional arrow. Now, even when the arrow is there, it's unreliable, and often points 180 degrees opposite the true location even when I am in motion. I've tried changing type and brand of batteries, but that does no good. What should I try next? Bill

How to plot my map in this gps


The 60 CSX dosent support custom maps but if you are looking to plan a route or plot waypoints the easiest way is to acquire a copy of Garmins TOPO disks and do all of this on the PC. You can also do this on the unit using " Mark Waypoint".

Hope this helps!

My 60 csx wont upload map coordinates from a map progamme thats allows this. The compass arrow often points in the wrong direction and the unit on the Go To page does not reliably take me to the desired...

The upload problem is generally communications settings in the software you're using to upload. You could try the freeware EasyGPS to make sure you can really communicate with the unit.

The "invisible waypoint" problem, if that's what you are describing, is generally a function of distance (ie, the unit only shows the closest points). Try sorting by name.

On my Garmin GPS maps 60 csx there are no

This happens to about 1% of the units I've sold. Sometimes the GPS antenna software reverts to version 0.00 which of course is nothing. Check in the GPS by going: Menu > Menu > Setup > System > Menu to see the versions installed.

Use Garmin WebUpdater (free from Garmin web site) to reload the software and update if necessary - they bring out updates a few times a year - it's all free and very easy to do using WebUpdater.

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.

Black Map - shows only cursor, North pointer, and data fields.

Try a hard boot on it. Remove the batteries for 1 minute, then re-insert them and try again. If this doesn't work, contact Garmin at

Garmin 60CSx - Cant find satellites

Try a re-load of the chipset driver. It is available from the Garmin website. I find that it occasionally becomes corrupt.
You can check by entering the "Main Menu" then "Setup" then "System" then press Menu and choose "Software Version".
If the "GPS SW Version" is 0.00 then a reload of the chipset driver will correct the problem.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites

Go to the Garmin Web site's home page, avoid staring to long at the hot chick and click on "On The Trail" .. "Mapping Handhelds" .. scroll down to the second row far right and click on the 60CSx. You will then see the 60CSx page, look to the right and click on "Updates & Dowdloads", on doing so you will now see four downloads to choose from. The one you will need is "GPS Chipset Type G Ver. 2.90 as of Nov 27, 2006" if you follow this you shouldn't have any problems. If however you do i'll keep an eye on this page and try to help, this is my first GPS and also had the same issue.
