    OK, I've managed to overcome the problem :D I've formated the micro SD card and now it works without any glitches :D

    Screen frequently fades out when using with cigarette lighter adaptor. Don't use on batteries alone frequently enough to know if the problem happens in that configuration as well.

    We normally use our Garmin 60Csx for geocaching and hiking, etc, but using it to find POIs (e.g. restaurants), it will shut off after about a minute, and continue to shut off several times after it is turned back on. This happens even with new batteries. There is no data loss, and once the unit is powered on, we can continue to navigate to the POI, but it is exceedingly irritating as it forces us to pull off the road and restart the device.



    We have the latest updates, any suggestions?

My device has seemed to have lost its ability to acquire satellites. Any suggestions? It's Garmin GPSmap 60CSx. Thanks.


I would try a reset and firmware update first. To Reset the unit hold the Page and Enter keys down while you power up the unit. hold them down until you get a prompt asking you if you really want to reset.

Garmin has a free software called webupdater. this will put the latest software in your unit. If there is a GPS chipset software available please apply that also. It will be in the list when you run webupdater.

You may want to try an external antenna also to see if an internal connection came loose.

Try to power up my GPS 60csx and the screen stays on for several seconds then fades out.


I would suggest that you try the following master reset and software
update.
Please be aware that if you have not used your gps for a while it will
take time to download fresh information.
With the unit switched off please press and hold QUIT + MENU + ZOOM OUT
+ POWER
You will lose any data stored on the unit so back your unit up first. I
would also suggest running the latest software update from the following
link, if you have not already done so http://www.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

Once all this is done please leave your unit with a clear view of the
sky and allow it to acquire a satellite fix. This may take time so
please be patient. Once you have a fix leave the unit for a further 40
minute to achieve a good almanac update.

I have a Garmin 60csx that won't power up


On my GPSmap 60CSx the screen fades away after powering on - just like the battery is empty. Changed battery and used USB power. Always the same. When removing  the 2GB micro SD memory card then it comes up. Replaced the memory card and now it powers up fine. Seems that the memory card is damaged or causes a short circuit.

Garmin 60CSx - Cant find satellites


Try a re-load of the chipset driver. It is available from the Garmin website. I find that it occasionally becomes corrupt.
You can check by entering the "Main Menu" then "Setup" then "System" then press Menu and choose "Software Version".
If the "GPS SW Version" is 0.00 then a reload of the chipset driver will correct the problem.

Cheers.

Garmin 60csx


Yes...but they now charge $150.00 for the screen. The screen isn't covered by their warrenty. If you just need the screen replaced because of scratches...try this...it works great and costs about 20.00 or so shipped. http://www.janvil.net/item.asp?cID=32&PID=31
