I have cracks on the face plate of my Garmin GPS 60CSx

The unit was stepped on and the face plate got four starlike cracks. Are there any spare parts? Does superglue work?

Ouch. This is one of Garmin's better handheld GPSr units. The device is weatherproof (maybe even waterproof, too - I forget), but since the case has been compromised that is no longer the case. Superglue may work, but it may also cause more problems due to smudging while still wet - and if the glue "melts" the plastic. I'd contact Garmin Customer Support below and see if they have a better remedy.

My unit garmin 60csx have not alarm clock. Is it normal? it has a cronograph!


It is normal - the 60Csx GPS does not have an alarm clock. There are alarms for proximity, depth, off course and anchor drag, only.

You can download a copy of the manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

I have the same problem


unfortunately that is the penalty for buying proprietry units. They control the sales of spare parts and can then run a monopoly. I don't think you have a choice once the warranty expires, unless you can get it replaced under insurance

Where can I get another plastic window for the front of my Garmin 60csx. It is cracked and I need to replace it.


Garmin or one of their authorized service centers are the only places to get spare parts. They will probably not sell it to you, requiring you to send it in for service. See Garmin.com for a list of service centers.

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.

Replace battery in a garmin


to crack the case on a garmin c550 or probably any other similar case styles is pretty easy. Facing the unit take you finger-nail (you don't need a flat screwdriver) and proceed to separate the chromish looking faceplate from the front of the unit. This is the shiny part that says 'garmin' on it. Just use your finger-nail and right above the garmin name start to work your way around the face plate and carefully remove the cover. There are 4 clip type connections that should slip out if you take your time. Once the face plate is off, remove the 4 black screws. There are 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom. Once removed separate the case and the batter is the long round thing between the speakers. I don't know what kind or type it is but at this point you can take it from here.

yeah sure with some handy work and a llittle patience you shouldnt have a problem just remove all the screws, be careful not to tear any wires remove the internal componets from your face plate take a small prying tool and remove the glass , just a few dabs of superglue and your back in business! if you want a shatter proof you can alsi use plexi glass.... and if your really adventerous you could remove the standard led's and put custom colors in .... but beware soldering on a board can be dangerous

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.
