Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
I just got a GPSmap 60csx unit and I am trying to download a new map to it. When I am in the MapSource program I can view the map I would like to put on the unit but I can not get it to transfer. I can transfer data but not the map. I think I need to unlock the map but I don't know how to do that.
How do you unlock a map to transfer it to your GPS?
Have you highlighted the section with the map select tool, then hit the Transfer to GPS button? If you do, what happens then? Does it freeze?
If you are able to send routes and waypoints to the unit, you should be able to send selected unlocked maps as well.

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.
