Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx

We have the map source disks for USA. We have loaded western US disk to our DELL laptop. When we attempt to save the maps to the GPS unit we get  a message on the computer that says"problem with Garmin application".  The Garmin is plugged into the USB port but it does not seem to recognize the computer.

I think all the Garmins allow to do is generate a waypoint list on your PC and upload THAT to the GPS, according to what Garmin told me about my Streetpilot C340. You also need Mapsource on the PC.

How and what steps to install a more detailed map of USA to Garmin GPS Map60CSx?


Hello,

To get more detailed mapping for 60CSx the easiest way is just to purchase them on a pre-loaded microSD card. You can also buy mapping on DVD but this requires you to load your own SD and is a little bit more work, but this would give you the ability to view them on your PC and create custom routes. All these items can be obtained from www.gpscity.com or www.gpscity.ca.

Hope this helps!

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!

Using dnr garmin or map source how do I transfer from excel


I've just had to do this. Somewhat annoying and I'm sure there must be a quicker way. Let me know if you find one. <br /><br />Firstly you need ArcGIS or something that can create .shp files. Load the Excel file into this. In Arc you need to right click the table and display the x y data (just to make sure it's all okay). Then save as a layer. Then export as an .shp file. <br /><br />You can the open the.shp in DNRGarmin and upload to your GPS..,<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


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.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


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.
