Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver

1 Answer

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.

Hi, anyone know if there is a cheaper way to update maps for western and eastern europe on a Tomtom Go 910? Mr Tomotom wants &70 and I may as well buy a new sat nav!


The only other way to get maps is to look for third party map files. Sometimes they are free. I've not tried to find one for my tomtom but have for my magellan. So if someone has done one then you just need to search the web for something like tomtom map download and the area covered.

SCREEN SHOWS NO MAPS AVAILABLE. WILL NOT UPDATE OR DOWNLOAD,


Hello and welcome to fixya.

I see you have not included the brand and model of your gps, those would be helpful.

It sounds like there are no maps installed in the GPS, you would have to connect it to your computer, install the software that came with it and possibly a CD that contains the maps.

You would have to install the software cd and then the maps cd if it is on different disk.

The user manual that came with your product will have instructions on how to load the maps into the gps.

The gps will not be able to update the maps if there are no maps installed there. As for download, I do not know what you are attempting to download.

Please follow the instructions and let me know how it goes. If you do need further assistance then please atleast include the brand and model of your machine, also it would be helpful to let me know what happened before the issue came up, did you delete files from the gps or? is this a brand new unit?

Thanks,
Ekse

I'm attempting to re-install maps on to my 7 year old Legend using the 'save to device' button. I get the following notice-'Your GPS does not support map transfer'. Why does my GPS no longer acccept maps...


Garmin Express cannot be used to transfer firmware to the etrex Legend. Use:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=25

Legend/Vista/Etex (H)Cx, any unit released prior to the Colorado) have map limits. They will only read 2gb of maps on a card (even if the card is larger) and will only read 2024 segments.

You would have to ask Garmin support as to why you cannot use the old disks. It may be irrelevant, but all methods of updating a Garmin do NOT work on all Garmins regardless of age. Even a utility that does work may work only if it is the version applicable to that generation of Garmin GPS units.

FYI, even if you have lifetime maps (free), you will only get free replacements for the maps that came upon the Garmin. An Australian Garmin with free maps will not allow you to get free maps while in the USA. You would have to pay for such.

No map available


It is quite likely that any maps you obtain from others will not work in your GPS as maps are coded back to component parts in the unit ANTI PIRACY codes .Similar to MS serial numbers. It reads ID's and checks against those stored in map. The only option is to purchase new maps for the area you want.

Maestro 4250 frozen after incomplete 2009 map up date


I had same problem on 3/28/09.

According to Magellan and other people who have experienced the same problem, this is terminal to the unit. It can be caused by downloading the 08/09 Magellan map upgrade, which can cause the unit to permanently lock up. Magellan is well aware of the problem, and should offer to replace your unit if you have the problem. If you elect to have it repaired, Magellan can download the map upgrade for you in the repair process. Here is a site noting the same problem: http://74.125.93.104/search?q=cache:pNLjGT-i4-sJ:forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php%3Ft%3D8958+magellan+4250+gps+stays+on+blue+screen&cd=8&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Questions for Magellan: 1) why would they sell, in 2009, gps units with old 2007 maps loaded in them, requiring the purchaser to buy a current map, and 2) if there is a problem with downloading the current maps, why is there not an advisement or warning to the installer.

Other than replacing the unit, there appears to be no "fix".

Replacing maps


You cant... Garmin sucks at support for doing stuff like this. They want you to buy a new one instead, only to find out its obsolete in a few years and then your new one is not supported in lets say in the year 2010.
That is why the Flash model 2010 and 2050 were more popular. Gave users more options and less moving parts for there unit to break.

Garmin Map update 2008


you will need to install the usb driver which should be located on the 2008 disk. When you attach the gps to your computer it should ask where the usb driver is located. If your dvd drive is (D) click browse and go the disk and find usb driver folder. I have purchased the new 2008 disk and had problems with it freezing on loader loading. I then browsed the disk and downloaded and then was able to get to the maps. I did not install it due to it asking what map I want to download. I wanted the whole thing so needless to say I am taking it back to walmart. I hope this helps.
