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 do you set barometer


Hi George:
I'm used to barometric pressure as related to altimeter setting in aircraft, but the principal is the same.
For an altimeter, If you know the elevation (above sea level) that you are at, and you set the altimeter to that altitude, the barometric pressure showing on the altimeter will be the current barometric pressure.
If you have a barometer without an altimeter, someone would have to provide you with the current setting. That would probably be your nearest weather station, airport, or your computer.
Here's a link to one.
http://weather.gc.ca/marine/weatherConditions-currentConditions_e.html?mapID=02&siteID=14300&stationID=46131
Pressure and tendency refers to barometric pressure.
If you reply as a COMMENT to this post I will try to assist if possible.
Cheers.

What is altimeter means


The altimeter records your elevation above sea level. Useful when mountain climbing, Tour De France cycle racing the mountain section or flying, which I am sure you do almost every day :>)

I have a Suunto X-Lander and i dont get along with the barometer/altimeter. The barometer always shows about 2 mbar below the nearby airport homepage. Can i by myself calibrate the sensor? This even...


Erik, the altimeter uses barometric pressure to determine changes in elevation. Rule one is whenever you know the elevation for a fact, adjust it as the barometer is changing often and therefore affecting the altimeter reading. The only sure way to avoid this is use GPS. Altitude is derived from locating 3 or 4 satellites in a geo syncrohnus(SP?) orbit. Pilots always reset the altimeter before take off and you should too. Find elevations on road signs, maps, etc.

How does the altimeter function work? we can't find it on the enclosed instructions


Altimeters on watches are usually based on barometric pressure, since the pressure changes all the time you generally need to adjust the altimeter to a known altitude. You can look on USGS website to find the altitude of your area, or simply type in "altitude of city, state" in a search engine.
I hope I understood your question; if not, please reply.

Tissot T-Touch Baro way too high


Try to recalibrate the Baro/Altimeter as below:

Certain functions need to be calibrated. The altimeter and the Meteo are tied together. When a customer gets the watch, they should calibrate to either the Meteo or Altimeter. The easiest way to find out the altitude of the nearest airport (you can usually get this on line) and then go to the airport and adjust the watch. This will also calibrate the Meteo.

To calibrate the Altimeter:

1. Activate Crystal
2. Press Altimeter
3. Press and hold top + button until the watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to adjust altitude
5. Press center of dial to lock in.

Adjusting meteo function


Yes, Sir. But remember when pilots reset their altimeter with the local altitude, the pressure value matches the moment wheather pressure. It will be wrong anyway, if you reset you altitude, but the pressure readings are still wrong. Im my case it is happening. The altutide is correct but the pressure of the watch does not match the local pressure. It is 20 hpa over it. By the way, I am an airline pilot.
