Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
When i turn my compass on it tells me to "hold level" nomatter how i hold it
The compass is very sensitive. Anything magnetic will intefere with its ability to calibrate. Try taking the unit outside, far away from anything metallic, and lay it down on a flat level surface, then follow the compass calibration procedure. Make sure you rotate the unit clockwise and turn it very slowly. If that doesn't work, you could have a defective sensor.
I'm not sure what you're using the compass feature for, but on mine I disable it. It draws the batteries down faster and I find that my track, or course over ground, is more reliable than the compass heading. The only real advantage to the compass is if you want to get a bearing while you are standing still.
