  1. What limit do you have set for number of track points? From the map page > Menu button > Setup map > scroll left or right to the Track icon > is the Track Points set to 10,000?

     

    What is the track recording method set to? Using Distance can reduce the number of track points.

     

    I had no saved tracks, but i did have some on the card that had dates beside them.

     

    It is set to auto record method and set to 3000, i just changed it this morning what does that do?

  3. I read a post that talked about a topo overlay. Can you overlay the topo over the city maps? I have a 60csx with topo 2008 and city2009nt.

     

    Here is the quote. If it helps.

     

     

    Now, as a caveat, I also have loaded a customized transparent topo overlay (using Topo 3.02), so I'm sure searching through 2 map sets doesn't help. Although, hiding the Topo map does not increase the speed at all.

  4. not sure what topo you have but I can autoroute in Topo US 24K West (CA/NV) and it goes from road to dirt road to trail. Nice.

     

    I just have topo 2008. The other topo looks very cool though. I wish they could do the whole us on one map.

     

    When you switch maps, does it just chage the display? Are teh map features like autorouting still there?

  5. I am going on a road trip and plan on spending some time in the smokey mtn park. I have a 60csx with topo

    and city nav 2009 in it There are some park roads that show up in topo and not in city. Can I start to navigate to a place with city and then switch to the topo map so i have more detail?

  6. I got the free upgrade pulgged in the gps to download and it states. Previous version not found and closes out. Could it be i dont have the map software on the computer?

  7. Is there a way to add a catagory, like coffee shops. I know you can down load starbucks, but that is not what i want. I would like all coffee shops. Is there a way?

  8. I use mapsource to create a route. Some on road and some off. I can get it in there and save it. I start a new one and save it. But it will not let me open more than one route at a time. I am going on vacation and have a route to get there and then some day trip routes. Is there a way to down load them all?

    60csx

    The only issue is not the size of hte card, but the amount of segments that mapsource will allow you to load. I believe the segments is 2024, whic if you have City Navigator NT is enough to load the entire country. If you wish to have topo as well it exceeds the number of segments you can load. I believe the 2 meg card is sufficient for that.

     

    I have a 2gig with all of cn2008 and about 1/3 of topo maps on it. Yes the biggest problems is the segment limit. As well i dont think 4 gig cards work in the unit.

  9. OK i am planning a trip. I have CN2008 and a 60cxs. I have a starting point and an ending point. I would like to add truck stops along the way that are with in 1 mile of the track. I know i can just do a search in the gps while going, but I will be driving and the wife would need to do it. HMMM. It would be much better if i could just make the truck stops show up along the track so when i am low on fuel she can tall me there is one ahead. I also dont want to see all poi's just truck stops. Any ideas?

  10. if you don't care about turn by turn directions in the car just get topo 2008. I just got it from amazon for 59.10 and it has a 30.00 rebate from garmin. It has most streets and info. I would get a 1 or 2 gig card so you can load a big area on it.

  11. First let me say YOU ARE THE MAN! But i have a question. I purchased 4 poi files. I would like to load them in 2 groups. 3 in one group and 1 in the other. I tried loading 3 the changing the name then loading 1, but when i open the gps it still shows 4 files. Any ideas on how to fix?

     

    Thanks Lee

  12. I had a Ifinder but upgraded to the 60CSX. I purchased the antenna for the Ifinder, but it never worked correctly with it. Can i use it with my 60 csx when i am in the car? The unit will work in the car now, but it jumps sometimes. The antenna states on it.
