SOURCE: Garmin 60C

I had a similar problem with another garmin model.  Problem cropped up after some sync software for an mp3 player was installed in my PC.

To get the software to recognise my GPS I had to go into my PC's task manager. (ctrl alt del).  Click on the processes tab and look for a program called "wces.exe".  Ending that process would allow the PC to recognise the GPS.  Be careful, ending the wrong process can screw up your PC.

I know this solution is a longshot, please don't give a bad rating!  :)

good luck

SOURCE: I have lost my Mapsource Setup cd for my Garmin GPS

  1. Download MapSource software updater from Garmin. The version as of December 4, 2007 is 6.13.6, and the trick also works on Map Source version 6.13.5.
  2. Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
    downloaded using WinRAR.
  3. From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi.
  4. Then, run Setup.exe. Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.
  5. Garmin MapSource now installed.

  1. Download the MapSource update file into a directory on your hard drive. (i.e., c:\garmin).
  2. Change to the directory in which you downloaded the files, (i.e., c:\garmin), and run the executable file (.exe). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update your MapSource installation.

If I get a new Lowrance GPS, can I use my SD card from my ifinder Hunt in the new device and use all my saved points?


First use "add gps" and add the original unit and the H20

use "receive from gps" to call in the original waypoint file from your sd card

use "send to gps" to save the new waypoint file to the sd card

remember that the original gps file may contain more waypoints than the H20 can hold so you may have to delete some waypoints from the file while in EasyGPS

if this is not clear enough, let me know and I will try again. I use the program all the time.
I just realized I left something out. EASYgps does not like the Lowrance HDS File version so an extra step is required if you are transferring files from an HDS to an IFinder. Save your HDS waypoints as Version 3 to the SD card and EASYgps will accept them

I can't get my Oregon 550t Garmin to dowload my waypoints using DNR Garmin. Any suggestions?


Hello,

The easiest way to get your waypoints from the unit to PC is to use Garmins Basecamp program or even try using google earth it also works well.

Hope this helps!

How to transfer data from my garmin 76c to my new garmin 640. I used easygps to get the data from my garmin 76c. I used easygps to send the waypoints to the new garmin 640. i see the data in the GPX...


i would try a direct drag n drop or copy/paste via the file explorer.
first check to see if the files are indeed in the corresponding folder on the 640. if they are then look for a setting on the 640.

Garmin gps 12 loss of data


I had the same thing happen. The problem is that the internal lithium battery is shot. Solution: phone Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 x 2,2,1. You send the receiver in along with a $42.41 check. They will probably replace the unit. They will explain exact procedures when you call.
Hope this helps.

Cracked glass


It will have to be returned to Garmin. They have a very good program to repair or replace your GPS for a flat fee. It seems to be a very good way to have your GPS fixed. Save your waypoints before you send it to them.

Hi there

Sounds lie it has a memory problem... perhaps a failed internal memory chip... are you using an external mem card with it as well?
