  1. - Probably you're in AUTO Display Mode. Go to Settings - Display - Display Mode. And change to "Daytime" in lieu of "AUTO". Hope this help.
  2. Hello, do you remove the batteries when you do not use the unit for short period like week days and re-install batt when you bring it for outdoors activities in week-end? I remove batteries when I store unit for week working days. - But I'm wondering if it is a good or bad practice? Your opinions? thanks.
  3. - me, too. the routes stay as was before.
  4. Is your map hidden by default? Try go map tab on the unit and check "show all" option.
  5. I have a topo pre-loaded memory card. I cannot use an auto-routing function.
  6. - Mine, same issues. Bring it back to Garmin Service. They have excellent service. I received new one few weeks ago. No more power problems. Hope this last.
  7. Do you know if these Rayovac Hybrid batt are available in Canada. I don't find them in some quebec's Walmart at all. Just "regular" NiMH only.
  8. No, but the discharge profile seems to more closely resemble the alkalines, so you may want to use that setting. With the older 60CS, the battery selection only affected the battery status display. I assume that is still true for the X series. Please feel free to flame me if I'm wrong about that. - hmmm...these famous hybrid batt are close to the alkaline batt, performance speaking. But, they still are NiMH batt. So, what setting choosen for them, Alkaline or NiMH? - Admin or Moderator, please discard/erase this second redundant post, please

  10. - Yes, as per Rayovac mfg: "Hybrid batteries can be charged in ALL brands of NiMH chargers, even in chargers you already own." "Unlike other regular NiMH rechargeables that need to be charged before using, Hybrid batteries come pre-charged and ready to use right out of the package. "
  11. Does 60csx have the "hybrid" setting choice on its battery dropdown list?
  12. - I just got Q last week. Amazing PDAs. And I plan to buy CoPilot gps add-on soft for my Q. You can get a BlueTooth version, too. Bobye spaghetti wire :-) Ref: http://www.alk.com/copilot/motoq.asp

    WAAS on 60CSx

    - "D" stands for "Differential", not for "Digital", I think. - If my memory is good, WAAS Sat number are 33 and up. The new one we can see is 51.
  14. Remove your batteries. The s/n is sticked on the plastic under the batteries.
  15. Hi all, any of you already use this soft, CoPilotLive with the Moto Qs? Its live broadcasts your location through a website that your friends/family can log into at any time to see your trip progress.
  16. - you're right. I must call them to reset my account. Because my 2nd unit is not really the second: it's only a replacement of the first "broken"one. In case of for future, may be I have to register the "3rd" one.
  17. Good news. I erase all maps in the memory card. Then I reload all new one via mapsource to my new unit. No more "can't unlock" message. Thanks for your help.
  18. - I just register my 2nd unit. The updated information is accepted by Garmin. Now, should I erase ALL existing maps on my microSD card and reload the new one that can be seen by my new unit?
  19. Hello all. I received my new 60csx from Garmin replacing my old unit which had many problem auto-shutdown. In my new one, at power up, I immediatly obtain this message: "Can't Unlock Map - Enter". Even I insert my old microSD card already have the City Navagator v.8, I can't switch to it. - What can I do to remove this message and have access to my microSD card for showing CN v.8? Thanks for your help.
  20. I had same repetitive auto-shutdown problem on my 60csx. I sended it to garmin for repair last month. Garmin replaces it by the new one and sended it to me yesterday. I will try it during my xmas vacation week. - Calkan, I take note your trick. I'll try my new unit without tightening screws on the back to see if it really works fine. If not, I'll do your trick.
  21. I add a piece of foam under the craddle . It greatly helps to absorb the road vibration.
  22. - rookie's question...what does mean "PRN"? thanks.
  23. You can spend 30 or more bucks on mount or if the dashboard configuration works, a simple $3 cell phone swivel mount will do the trick. Here is the setup I have in my Honda CRV - in this position, your unit can achieve enough strong signal to compute your route?
