Your problem is explained on following site: www.roaminggecko.com good luck.
Briefly it has something to do with shutting the unit off while it was uploading software creating an error thus I think you will have to reload your software, check this site for specifics list your problem

Needs updating


This is not as easy as it seems. I tried to do that when I registered my new unit. In the dowload process (attached to my PC via USB), the site told me I need some special software to manage the download. It looked like some Microsoft product I never heard of. As it finished installing the vector software, the Garmin update maps never got downloaded. Each time I tried, my PC slowed down, to actually crashing ! Rebooting told me it can only come back on in the Safe mode (do drivers). So my only savior was to Reset to a previous date, when all went well. Boy, was that nasty ! Now, my PC runs Vista Premium Home edition using Explorer. I never was happy with Vista.
Your free map Update is good for 60 days from use of unit. So, do not delay.
I still have not updated my Garmin, but should soon.
Try their https://my.garmin.com/maps/nuMaps.htm page to see if you qualify.
Maybe your PC will accept the software to load the new maps into your Garmin. Just be ready to reset your computer to a previous user date, so you can fix your Crash.
PS - I had no time yet to alert Garmin Support of this issue. I enjoyed using it in Hawaii. It really helped.

How to plot my map in this gps


Hello,

The 60 CSX dosent support custom maps but if you are looking to plan a route or plot waypoints the easiest way is to acquire a copy of Garmins TOPO disks and do all of this on the PC. You can also do this on the unit using " Mark Waypoint".

Hope this helps!

My 60 csx wont upload map coordinates from a map progamme thats allows this. The compass arrow often points in the wrong direction and the unit on the Go To page does not reliably take me to the desired...


The upload problem is generally communications settings in the software you're using to upload. You could try the freeware EasyGPS to make sure you can really communicate with the unit.

The "invisible waypoint" problem, if that's what you are describing, is generally a function of distance (ie, the unit only shows the closest points). Try sorting by name.

On my Garmin GPS maps 60 csx there are no


This happens to about 1% of the units I've sold. Sometimes the GPS antenna software reverts to version 0.00 which of course is nothing. Check in the GPS by going: Menu > Menu > Setup > System > Menu to see the versions installed.

Use Garmin WebUpdater (free from Garmin web site) to reload the software and update if necessary - they bring out updates a few times a year - it's all free and very easy to do using WebUpdater.

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

New Garmin 330 stuck on kansas


Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".

Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.

Each map is locked to the unit serial number. The only way to get the map to work on another unit is to buy the maps and register the map serial number and you will receive a unlock code from garmin.

Go to the following link to unlock the map

Forerunner 205 wont turn on


"To power the unit back on, press the "Mode" and "Reset" buttons at the same time. Let go of those two buttons, press the power button, and the unit will turn back on."
If the unit is no longer displaying maps or lap data in the PC downloaded history ....perform a reset (as above) AFTER deleting all the Garmin HISTORY. This is done on the unit by navigating through HISTORY to "DELETE ALL" ---> now perform a soft reset.
