  1. Changes made from version 6.11.5 to 6.11.6: This version of MapSource no longer supports Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows NT. Fixed an issue with transferring map sets larger than 2 GB to units. MapSource supports transferring map sets up to 4 GB in size. Note that some units do not support map sets over 2 GB in size. Fixed an issue with creating a waypoint from Japanese address search result. Fixed an issue with MapSource not finding Google Earth Pro when installed. Find it here: http://www.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209
  2. You need to be in USB mode to do this - MENU > SETUP > INTERFACE
  3. Try opening the gpx file with a text reader to see if those waypoints are somehow coming from GSAK.
  4. It's the accuracy circle - an estimate of positioning error that's dependent on EPE and the map. I don't think there's any way to turn it off, but it may not be shown if you're "locked on roads."
  5. The 60CSx will display 50 waypoints when it's in "nearest" mode, and will display all of them when it's in the "by name" mode. Toggle modes in the "find>waypoint" list by pressing "menu." Note: In the "by name" mode, use the ouiji board to type the first few letters, then press "page" to jump to that spot in the alphabetical list.
  6. Do you have anything on your "proximity" page? Are there any .gpi files in your Garmin/POI folder on the SD card?
  7. Since the Meridian line is no longer supported, there will be no fixes or firmware updates - steer clear.
  8. I agree with Red90 - having purchased the 60CSx, I have the tiniest bit of buyers remorse that I spent extra on the compass and the altimeter. OK - I'm over it. OTOH, if there's a cache hidden with altitude data to tell me which tree knot to look in, I'll be ready!
  9. Thanks for the workaround - didn't know about that. Still a bug, though...
  10. You can use POILoader to load waypoints to the SD card as POIs, but not as waypoints - that's one way around the limit. However, there are some custom POI glitches (can't click and go, transparency of the icon) in the current firmware.
  11. Alex, I have CNv7 and Topo installed on my computer. For both maps, I started at the southern terminus of the AZ-NM border and dragged directly north to the US-Canada border, then west to the Pacific to include all of CA, AZ, and NV, as well as all of UT, ID, WA, and OR, and parts of WY and MT. For both road and topo maps, the total size was 592 MB.
  12. Yes, to all the above. Also, as I found out today, WebUpdater will also update... WebUpdater!
  13. The SiRF chipset has its own firmware - it's the "GPS SW" listed in the unit ID screen. The Garmin firmware is listed as "Software Version." WebUpdater will update both - you can also upload the new SiRF firmware without using WebUpdater by running the stand-alone install.
  14. Check your email filters - replies come from "sales@gpsdiscount.com" which immediately get sent to my junk folder unless the address or domain is tagged as safe...
  15. Another vote for Scott at gpsdiscount.com. I've gotten several items from him, big and small, and he has always been the best at price (or close enough), highly professional, and fast, both shipping and response to inquiries. Dont' work there, but I buy there.
  16. Morbid curiosity more than anything else, but does anyone know when Garmin went from a single firmware package to this new Software/GPS Software dual upgrade system? Is it Sirf, nothing but the Sirf, so help me Sirf?
  17. The unlock code "marries" your purchased map data to a specific GPSr. You can compile and download any number of map segments any number of times from any number of computers (desktop, laptop, home) with a single unlock. Or short answer: Yes.
  18. The code that you get from Garmin has to be entered into any computer that you're using it on, and the code is specific to the ESN of the GPSr. If you want to use it on a second GPSr, you need a second unlock code that goes with the second GPSr. On the other hand, you can install the software on any number of computers and use those computers with a single GPSr, which is a plus. I can have MapSource and my maps available on my home computer, laptop, and work computer, and they're all capable of downloading maps to my GPSr using the same unlock code. Does that make sense?
  19. I use hole at the antenna base to enhance the buoyancy of my 60CSx. I picked up a floating keychain at a boat store, and I hook it through the hole when I use my 60CSx in a canoe or other boat. It's enough to keep it from sinking should it fall overboard. I wouldn't want to support the full weight of the unit with it, however.
  20. The new 2.90 firmware allows you to press the power button and "reboot" the GPSr.
  21. One other way - If you upload waypoint via MapSend, that upload will erase all existing waypoints in the unit.
  22. Try EasyGPS or the MapSource program (I think it's "Trip/Waypoint Manager") that came with the unit. LOC and GPX have different formats, but both can be ready by EasyGPS. I don't know if MapSource can read LOC files, but it can read GPX.
  23. Hmmm... I didn't see the "ion" part when I checked, but then again, I only checked to make sure that my settings were still set to NiMH after updating. I just sent off an email to Garmin to see if they support using rechargable Li-Ion CR-V3 batteries in their units now...
  24. At least it wasn't the pilot asking.
  25. Whether WAAS SVs can offer ranging and correction data, one or the other, or nothing is besides the point. The "x" series are having some pretty frustrating examples of their inability to use this data and recognize the SVs in their appropriate location. And if PRN 35 is the only WAAS SV visible to your location, which is pretty much the central time zone of the US, then that one satellite becomes pretty important. I've been unable to get PRN 35 to "move" to it's appropriate location in the SW. I parked my car facing that way this morning - let's see if a nice long "soak" helps it to absorb the WAAS almanac.
