  1. I bought the same '12 volt adapter' from Amazon and it is the correct one for sure. It is simply that the stock was out there before the new 60CSX was released. I lowered the fuse rating in mine though just for safety and never like to use them with batteries in the GPS. I am sure it would be fine but I had a Magellan P.O.S. explode on me using the factory 12 volt adapter and batteries left in. I later found out it was Magellans fault and they would not do any warranty repair as it was 1 month out of warranty. BASTARDS!!!
  2. Sounds to me like you have the software set to a different map datum format than that displayed by the gps. I made this same mistake a while back and it can put you way out. I would make sure the map datum is set to WGS 84 in both the software and the gps if indeed that datum can be selected in Streets and Trips.
  3. As stated above I simply created a folder on the harddrive and named it after each disk ie. east, west and alaska or whatever. I then went into the disk under explore and copied all files on that disk to the new folder then i ran the .exe file from there. It installed the whole thing to the pc and no need for the disk.
  4. How can it be factory sealed if you took it out and turned it on to test if it works? Smells a little odd to me but then again being a cop I am suspicious of anything from Jersey!!! It will be a reciept from an online dealer. We bought two of these and one of the items the person that which it was intended for, passed away so obviously, no need for two units. So it DOES come with full warranty and is still factory sealed.
  5. Wow!! Thanks CheshireFrog. I guess I should have posted the question sooner you would have saved me weeks of searching. It worked great and not only does it tell you the software version but it also tells you the chipset version and the unit ID. Now I can rest assured I have the latest firmware etc. on the unit. Thank you very much.
  6. I have been updating my Garmin 60CSX since it came out everytime an update is released. However it has been difficult to know if all of these updates have taken due to lack of comfirmation by the computer. I updated the other day to version 3.00 however I didn't realise there is a seperate update you have to do for the chipset (verison 2.7) in addition. I have searched and searched on the unit itself and the only version data I can find is the one for the basemap which is version 4.0. How can I find the information on the unit itself? Thanks
  7. Can anyone tell me why we couldn't get a Cache site approved? It was in the middle of the White Sands Nulcear Missile testing range in Utah. Beautiful location and miles of good hiking (if you avoid the craters).
  8. Sounds to me like you are the one trying to scam people on here by asking people for a hook up on their copy of the software. This is a highly illegal request and would render their registered copy useless pretty much if they 'hooked' you up. Call the FBI if you are geniune as cross state fraud has been comitted, may also be federal postal offences committed depending on the circumstances. Buyer beware!!!
  9. You can find these units Brand new and boxed for less than $275 now some places online are clearing them out. Too many scratches on this one for me.
  10. For those that have not seen much of WAAS lately it has nothing to do with Firmware updates it is because satelites and particularly the statelite that covers east coast USA is being moved and it will be fall 2006 before the new replacement will be in place. My signal has not been quite as good as last year since the move was under way and I am way out there as far east in Maine as it gets. In the fall when the new satelite is online and in position expect excellent reception. More details can be found searching the web.
  11. There is no one answer to this question. I researched pretty much every website out there that sells GPS Units and found that some are better at offering good prices for one make and others are better for others. I used GPSDiscount.com for my Garmin GPSMap 60CSX I got it for $500 for the unit and a bunch of extras including charger and TOPO software which would have cost me another $100+ on there own. Wouldn't have been a good price had I not needed the extras but seeing as I did need the software it made the unit much cheaper than anywhere else at that time.
