Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CS GPS Receiver
I have had my Garmin 60csx for about 8 months & love it. Recently I took it with me down to Mexico. The unit keep turning itself off. I thought maybe I bought bad/old batteries, but I bought new ones & it still happend the next day. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've had the same problem until I updated the software to version 4.00.
To see your Software version push Menu 2x, choose Setup, choose System, push Menu, choose Software Version. It will tell you the software version on top.
You can download the latest version on the Garmin website.

It may be the batteries moving after a bump especially when cycling. I lined the battery cover with thin single sided canopy tape and bought the largest NiMh 2650 mAh batteries. Now the batteries don't move after a shock. Garmin should know the problem, they built the 60Csx with poor metal tab battery compartments, should have been spring loaded.
I also had problems with wild battery fluctuations and the appearance of excessive battery consumption. Again it was metal tabs instead of wires between the battery board and the main board. I soldered two thin stranded wires between the main board and the battery board.
I haven't had any problems for 1.5 years since i did both fixes. Love the Garmin now! >RocketRob
