Hi,
Had the same problem, lost the chipset firmware, unit showed software version 4.00, chipset 00.0. Spent many hours trying to fix the problem.
Seems many people are having similar problems since using the webupdater. My unit became blank on the satellite page after update.
found many "solutions" on the net, none worked for me, resets,master resets,uninstalling usb drivers etc,etc.Was on the point of sending the unit back to Garmin for a very expensive service, contacted garmin who said they had never come across this problem !!!!.
Problem seems to arise from pressing the light button at an inappropriate time in operation.

This solution worked for me, check out this file and download

http://www.gawisp.com/perry/gps60/GPSMAP60CSx_250.exe

extract file to new folder
connect garmin, and run updater in the new folder.

following this procedeure, all appeared ok--ran the webupdater and installed latest soft/firmware.

here is the chipset files to try, although suggest leaving well alone if you aquire satellites with any software version.

Good luck !!!

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.

Cheers.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites


I found the solution that fixed my 60CSx. You need to make sure you have the latest chipset installed on your device. Go to

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00422-00&cID=145&pID=310

and download the chipset type G ver 2.9.

After you have loaded it on your 60CSx, you should be good to go. Just turn it on like you normally do and now you'll see your device retrieving locks w/ the satellites.

Let me know if this helps you out.

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.
