Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx
My new Garmin 60CSx dont find any satellites. What could the problem be? I appreciate any proposal to solution.
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
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.

My GPS map 60CSX is not acquiring satellites. It was working fine until most recent power up.
