The marine version of the 60 series is the 76. Same insides, different case. I assume that's what they meant.

Either one will geocache (actually, any will but it's easier in some units than others.).

My date and time is wrong on my gpsmap 60csx. how can i adjust it? I just did an update


The 60CS does not have a way to set the date and time manually- it finds both from the satellites as soon as it receives them.

The time zone can be set in:
- Main menu
- Marine setup
- Time Setup then TimeZone

I have the same problem


unfortunately that is the penalty for buying proprietry units. They control the sales of spare parts and can then run a monopoly. I don't think you have a choice once the warranty expires, unless you can get it replaced under insurance

The coordinates that I get are 30 metres off from the other GPS units that we geocache with. My settings must be off.


Yes, have you enabled WAAS on your 60CSx? WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, according to the instruction manual an FAA funded service to improve overall integrity of the GPS signal through North America.

If you are in an area which is not serviced by ground stations, having WAAS enabled may degrade the signal from the GPS satellites. Try enabling or disabling this feature.

To do so, acess the System Startup Page. On the Setup Menu page, highlight the System icon and press Enter. WAAS is the second available setting on this page.

Make sure your batteries are fresh; I prefer alkalines in this model. Set the battery type in the System Setup Page, same page as noted for WAAS above.

Another thought is to be sure you have the latest Garmin software installed. Visit their site to download the latest and greatest, free, of course.

A stolen GPSMAP 60Cx is it posible to locate it once it is turned on???


Sorry, no. Report serial number and internal ID number(if known) to Garmin and the Police. If a map is ever unlocked for it or it comes in for repair at least Garmin will know.

Buzzing noise when i turn off Garmin 60CSx


This problem is Mac OSX related and can be solved using Cleaneject http://www.javawa.nl/cleaneject_en.html
The OSX operating system creates several invisible files and folders on USB-disks, camera's and GPS devices and the Garmin GPS devices can't cope with these invisible files and folders.
Cleaneject erases the invisible files and folders.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites


I found the solution that fixed my 60CSx. You need to make sure you have the latest chipset installed on your device. Go to

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00422-00&cID=145&pID=310

and download the chipset type G ver 2.9.

After you have loaded it on your 60CSx, you should be good to go. Just turn it on like you normally do and now you'll see your device retrieving locks w/ the satellites.

Let me know if this helps you out.
