Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS Receiver

I have a 4yr old Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx .that has ceased to function .Do you have the capability of working on this device

New batteries, testing connections in the battery housing with a volt meter, removing the SMS device and cleaning the copper flanges on the card and the housing with a Q tip. There was a small amount of corrosion in the area.

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!

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


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.

Update/Reload your unit's GPS and sytem software via Garmin page or use Web Updater. Your unit will be functioning again. This problem also occurs if you leave your unit on a dash board in a car and it is exposed to hight temperature.

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.

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.
