Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver
Usually after a longer rooute calculation, even with new batteries or on external power, screen fades, colour drains and unit shuts down, restart will sometimes continue the calculation - sometimes whilst tracking position in the car with car power cord in, after a variable time unit fades and shuts down again. Currently got UK Topo installed, and about 60 waypoints saved . Memory Chip is 1Gb - could it be insufficient memory? would installing a 4Gb chip solve it? - Is it a recognised problem with this model? - otherwise it is great, portable and v useful- but the glitch makes me less inclined to rely on it............Anybody help??

I had the problem where I ended up disassembling the Garmin and adding a small piece of plastic to the on/off button. For some reason the push button on the top does not reach the one on the circuit board.

Have you highlighted the section with the map select tool, then hit the Transfer to GPS button? If you do, what happens then? Does it freeze?
If you are able to send routes and waypoints to the unit, you should be able to send selected unlocked maps as well.

Try re-setting your gps by simultaneously pressing the Enter and Page buttons while turning it on if that doesn't work check your firmware i found the latest one v 3.90 would shut off my gps when recalculating v 3.70 is stable Garmin know that the new firmware can cause problems

You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.
