No volume on my GPS 60

I have just purchased the Garmin GPS 60 for a handheld back up but also especially for the anchor drag alarm.
I have tried everything but cannot get any volume out of it and it would never wake us up.
What am I doing wrong, where is the volume control? I cant find anything in the manual.

Thanks for any advice on getting the volume to work and setting the anchor alarm.

Lena May i have same problem

There is no volume control, but page 44 of your manual might help.

Go to the setup menu, then select "tones"

Use the drop down arrows to select a tone for "message beep" and "turn warning". One of those two settings is for the anchor drag alarm.

Make sure the mute box at the bottom is not checked off.

When setting your drag alarm, bear in mind that GPS error is usually @9' to 15' it can be as much as 50' in any direction. Which means any drag distance less than 100' is likely to cause false alarms. Choosing a drag distance that is at least twice as much as the position error reported on the satellite status page will minimize false alarms.

My unit garmin 60csx have not alarm clock. Is it normal? it has a cronograph!


It is normal - the 60Csx GPS does not have an alarm clock. There are alarms for proximity, depth, off course and anchor drag, only.

You can download a copy of the manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

A65 unit does not indicate proper position. When alongside a buoy it shows the buoy ahead by about 50 feet. When the buoy is 50 ft behind the sail boat, the A65 shows it abeam. Even my handheld Garmin does...


You may be aware that the system is "detuned" for security reasons. With GPS, repeatability is the key. A bouy is NOT a stationary item, especially at low tide, I suggest that you test your accuracy with stationary objects. A map (chart) cannot know which way the tide is moving a bouy, only the approximate anchor location, the bouy floats and moves....

When I turn on my Garmin Legend, draggng anchor appears and a loud alarm sounds. None of the buttons work.Can't even turn it off.


This may not be the solution but go to their web site. I had problems with me Etrex Vista and they sent me patches, etc and finally I ended up sending it back and they fixed it and sent me a new one. If you can back up your waypoints etc. Do so because once they get it those will be wiped out.

My garmin gps 60 csx hangs midway during operation


Have you updated the unit's software lately? Free unit software updates can be found on Garmin's site. Search for your model as this software is model-specific. There was a new satellite launched in '08 which caused problems for some Garmin units, making some units freeze. The software update fixes this.

Please come back and advise us if this works, and rate our solution. Thank you.

When i logged onto the garmin website initially it stated i was eligible for the latest maps update however once i am done registering its no longer available. what should i do?


garmin give you 60 days from the first time you use your gps to update the map for free. so if you turned on your gps august 10th, and it's now the 22th, you're out of luck.

it's from the time of gps use, not the time when you create your profile online.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.
