Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver

Open Question

Garmin GPS for land surveying/mapping

Can anyone help me with a solution to this problem: Which Garmin GPS unit would be most efficient/accurate for doing preliminary land surveying in the coastal hills of Northern Ca. What we need to do is establish Lat. & Long. points (and altitude) that are fairly close to the actual points that will be surveyed by a registered surveyor, In doing this we are going to save a substantial amount of time and money in clearing brush and having a good sense of where the actual survey crews need to be to establish the actual registered survey marks.The GPS MAP 60CSx looks like it might fill the bill...but I would like another opinion or two. Sincerest thanks to any and all in advance. --Rich

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 shouldn't have to connect to a computer. I don't have an OS map in front of me but I'm guessing they use UTM with a WGS 84 datum (if the map was produced after 1984 that is). Got to the Setup page then select Units. Change Position Frmt to UTM/UPS and Map Datum to WGS 84.

SOURCE: Garmin zumo 550 map update problem

  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

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.

Garmin Street Pilot. No upgrades available from Garmin. Can it be updated some other way?


Hi Steve,

The Street Pilot line was one of the first automotive GPS devices from Garmin, and has got to be 8+ years old. Garmin contracts with Navteq for map software. At one point, Garmin needed to have Navteq compress their new maps so that they wouldn't need to increase the amount of memory in the GPS units and still be able to include all the way points, and new features such as junction view, traffic receivers, text to speech voices, etc. These new maps have an "NT" descriptor in the title. "NT "stands for "New Technology". Non-NT maps are no longer produced.

The new Garmin GPS hardware had to included the ability to decompress maps "on the fly" for display on the screen. As a result, the NT maps will not work in the older Garmin devices.

Your best bet is to either use the Street Pilot - knowing that the routes may no longer provide accurate information, or purchase a New, Refurbished or Used GPS. Garmin offers "Lifetime Maps" as an option for nearly all NT capable GPS units either as a subscription after GPS purchase, or "in the box" when buying a Garmin GPS. You'll get FREE map updates for that GPS up to 4 times per year. This assures you of always having the most recent maps available in your GPS. Look for a model that has "LM" in it (ie: nuvi 1490LM). If it has a "T" in the model name (ie: nuvi 1490T), it has Lifetime Traffic. If it is listed as "LMT" (nuvi 1490LMT) it has both Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic.

I hope helps!

Garmin Maps. Does anyone know if I can download a cyprus map onto my 765. I know Cyprus is not very big, but it would be useful to be able to use the GPS whilst I am there


I own a Garmin also, Garmin will sell you a CD for the specific area you are in but they do not sell for one specific area. Such as you just want a map of Cyprus in your unit. You will get that and all the area around Cyprus. If you google Garmin and go to there official website it will give you the information on what is on each of the CD's they are selling to their customers.

I hope this helps you out.

Why does my garmin nuvi 465t tell me to exit juction 13 onto the M27 EAST when I go to southampton docks. the lane assist is correct though but the voice and text are wrong?


It is estimated that 10–15% of the road network changes every year. There is also inevitably some human error/subjectivity in the creation of a digital map.

All of which means that maps must be constantly maintained to keep the level of map errors as low as possible. Tele Atlas has extensive survey teams constantly out surveying new roads, changed roads, POI positioning and accuracy, map errors, etc.

Each change and fix is then checked before being built into the next map release. GPS vendors predominantly use Tele Atlas maps, then compiles the map vendor release and has it error-checked

This complex and labor-intensive process can mean it is several months before a map vendor’s new release is ready and fit for use in a GPS product.


Due to the high frequency of new map releases, there’s a small chance that a new map is released between the production of a GPS unit and the date that it is sold in retail.

If you've found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

My Garmin StreetPilot 2730 won't hold its settings.


Do a hard reset.

Turn the unit off, then hold down the menu and map buttons, simultaneously, then turn the unit back on and continue to hold down the buttons down for at least five more seconds, then the unit will power up. At that point it's like the unit is being used for the first time and you will have to reset everything. You will lose your XM presets, but the MP3's were still there.

Also after if this does not work, plug in your garmin and mount it, mac or pc whatever, then go in your garmin file erase all maps should be gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img. Reload your maps from mapinstall.

Problem with my garmin c310


Garmin do send out update DVD maps for certain products. If it was an older unit, you maybe entitled to a free update. Simply get the Mapsource DVD. upload the maps to your PC and then transfer onto your Garmin unit.

Alternatively is to buy the DVD, which would be an advantage as it may offer additional maps to what you already had...ball park €60-70 Euro I think...Check the Garmin site...

Going to Mexico and my garmin will not display it.


There are a variety of Garmin® GPS devices that come preloaded with mapping not just for the United States but also for Europe and Mexico. Any nuvi® that has 70 in the model number will have preloaded mapping for North America and Europe.

Example: nuvi 270, nuvi 370, nuvi 670, nuvi 770

Also, some specialty models will have preloaded mapping for North America and Mexico. These units include the nuvi 200 Mexico (p/n 010-00621-2A) and the Nuvi 260W Mexico (p/n 010-00656-37).

To obtain Mexico maps, go to this link:

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
