Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver

2 Answers

I am trying to download waypoints from my Garmin 60SCx to Mapsource 6.11.6. The GPS is connected to the computer with the supplied USB cable and is receiving power. However, the programme does not recognise the GPS (no devises were found). On the Interface page on the GPS it says that the GPS is not connected. Any suggestions. Best wishes. Mark

Unplug the usb cable, Turn the unit off, Plug the usb cable back in and allow the unit to come on by its self (it should come on as soon as the computer finds it) Make sure the garmin is completely turned off before plugging in the usb cable to the computer.

You cannot load maps to the unit using the Trip and Waypoint Manager software. That software only does what it's called - it transfers routes and waypoints. To install maps onto your GPS, you will need Mapsource, which normally comes with the maps. Once it's installed on your PC, you hook up your GPS with a mini-USB cable, choose which maps you want transferred to the unit, and then the Mapsource software will knit the map segments together and transfer them over to the unit. Hope this helps.

Enter waypoints via computer keyboard


Install Mapsource from Garmin on your computer. It will allow you to enter your points then upload via serial or USB.

How do I get Map Source and related software on a laptop in addition to my desktop? I want to be able to make route and waypoint additions away from my desk for a Garmin nuvi 265WT.


Mapsource comes on a cd and is just installed like any other program. Then you access it from the start menu. Once you make your routes or poi's you connect the nuvi with the usb cable and upload.

How does one update th gps?


You connect the 2720 to your pc with the supplied usb cable.
Power up the 2720 with the ac supply cable.
Then run the garmin webupdater. It will do the update.

You must have previously installed the webupdater and the usb drivers. If you use the garmin mapsource software and can connect to the 2720, to transfer waypoints, tracks, etc., then the usb drivers are already installed.

You can download the webupdater at this site:

Hope this helps.

Garmin gps60 connected to PC


You have the USB cable but what software? Have you got the MapSource CD? If not, there's a free and legal workaround. Download the free Garmin Training Center (from Garmin site), open it to check it works, close it then download the Mapsource update file, also from Garmin site. You'll now have MapSource and can uninstall Training Center. You'll need maps though - depending where you are there's some free maps otherwise get a Garmin map to make it easier to plan trips.

How to download from gps to my pc


There is freeware out there provided by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources that allows Garmin users to download their data in a number of different format. Search "DNRGarmin GPS Application" and follow the instructions. This is great for GIS user because it will download to a shapefile.

It has the ability to upload some data, as well. Although, I suspect there are fewer options for uploading data than, say, Mapsource.

Trouble connecting to any computer


Hmmm..

Make sure your using a USB cable, specifically a USB cable with a mini connector on the end. Specifically, a USB cable with the second one from the left in this picture:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:USB_types_2.jpg

If you are using the USB port, you should have no need for setting COM ports.

Another technique you can use (which I just figured out today) was to place the Garmin Unit in "USB Mass Storage Mode". This allows you to offload saved tracks, but I don't think you can download waypoints or other things that the WayPoint Manager allows.

You can access this option via the Garmin Unit

Goto: "Main Menu" -> "Setup" -> "Interface". Press Down to get to the button "USB Mass Storage". Plug in that USB Mini cord, and you have a thumb drive!

Good Luck!
