Light go's out after short period of time, screen go's dark


Consult page 11 of the owner's manual
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/3291_OwnersManual.pdf , and follow the instructions. Pressing the power key repeatedly cycles between maximum backlight, minimum backlight and manual settings.

My unit back light is not working. the chart is displayed but can only be seen if you hold it to your face.


Backlights are part of the LCD display and consist of LED's. You may have to replace the entire LCD display or find another display that is cracked but has a working backlight. In most cases, you can swap backlights. There may be some soldering involved.

My Garmin GPSMAP 178C screen backlight failed


Backlight problem: Remove the display, remove the light tube from behind the LCD. Buy a led panel from Ebay for around $5 and install it behind the LCD under the drfusing layers. Run the wires out to a 12 VDC source and there you have it.

Batteries last only 20 minutes?


NiMH batteries work on less voltage than Alkaline batteries, so the unit thinks the batteries are low when they are just the wrong type, put Alkaline batteries in {and turn off the backlight if possible} and you will get your 8 hours of use.

Garmin GPSMap 60 CSx USB Connection


Actually, I just solved the problem myself...

I went to Garmin's driver download site (http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=591) and got the latest USB driver (2.2.1) for the 60C. (Although, it appears that that driver pertains to all Garmin products, not just the GPSmap series or the 60C.) Installation instructions are pretty much standard for Windows drivers, so it's easy.

That: a) Garmin requires special USB drivers for their product is finicky (most USB-connectable products just connect automatically using Windows' generic USB driver), and b) my unit -- which had always worked just fine, and suddenly stopped connecting out of the blue -- remains a mystery. Nonetheless, a driver upgrade was the final step that I needed. (Although, I also swapped USB cables and upgraded MapSource, too, so maybe it's some combination of those things.)
