20 Most Recent Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver Questions & Answers

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

Try your local phone doctor. My local one fixed my camera for a reasonable price though I had a few weeks wait for a part to arrive from China.

The on/off switch on these were problematic.. so you might want to look at the linkage and switch before digging deeper, below.

Corrosion is a problem. If you can clean it up, you should. If the corrosion is a result of a leaking battery, you should disassemble the device as far as possible to allow access to areas that have been contaminated with battery acid. I like to use a q-tip dampened in a mixture of baking soda and water (about 10% baking soda and 90% water). Battery acid conducts electricity and must be removed. Anywhere it is results in changes in the values of components and can cause a great deal of problems.

You may also be able to exchange for a modest sum with Garmin for one of their rebuilt units - if available.

Good luck!

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.

Resetting will not delete tracks - you must delete the track(s) individually. Your manual is here. Turn to page 26 and read "Using Tracks" to learn how to delete them.

Good luck!
