60CSX altimeter problem

My 60 CSX max elevation screen stays at a high altitude and I cannot zero it, when I do a reset it goes to zero for about one second then goes back to the same previous value. I have tried recalabrating the alti but it returns it to the same high value.
any fixes for this?

    I have a garmin 76cs (similar insides) and have the exact same problem as above; total ascent and min/max altitude are stuck at zero.

    I fixed this problem in my 76cs by doing a factory reset.
    It kept all my maps, but dumped all waypoints and tracks.
    After that, the altimieter problem was fixed.

    Your reset will vary, and can easily be found on google. Mine was

    http://gpsinformation.us/gps60c/g76Crevi...
    Complete Reset:
    Press "Enter, Page, and Power on keys" to get to the message that says, "Do you really want to erase all user data". Before you say "YES", I would strongly recommend you download your waypoints, tracks, and routes to a computer, and write down your settings as they will all be erased or reset. Of course your software version will remain the same, and
    any downloaded maps will still be there.

    And then: From the Trip Computer Page, while there push the scroll key up, right, down, & then left to get to a diagnostic screen used by Garmin Techs. I would not recommend playing with this screen too much, less you want to ship your unit back to Garmin for repair!

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!

The screen on my garmin 60 csx is scuffed. Can it


It can. I believe Garmin has a flat fee for fixing. On the newer models like yours I think it $150. I would wait till something really goes wrong before sending it in for repair.

On my Garmin GPS maps 60 csx there are no


This happens to about 1% of the units I've sold. Sometimes the GPS antenna software reverts to version 0.00 which of course is nothing. Check in the GPS by going: Menu > Menu > Setup > System > Menu to see the versions installed.

Use Garmin WebUpdater (free from Garmin web site) to reload the software and update if necessary - they bring out updates a few times a year - it's all free and very easy to do using WebUpdater.

305 Elevation Problem


Sorry to have to break (no pun intended) this to you, but I have had two units do this. Once this problem starts eventually the Elevation field will display and stay at 65616. The problem is with the barometric altimeter and cannot be fixed without sending the unit to Garmin. When you call Garmin technical support, they will have you do all sorts of resets - be patient - eventually they will concede that the unit is busted and give you an RMA. Both times this happened was after the unit got a little roughed up (one time dropped it, the other time was mountain bike tumble) - evidently the altimeter is the least robust part. Good luck.
