Garmin GPSmap 60CSx in DEMO-ONLY mode


Recommended Posts

When I send waypoints from my Mapsource software to my Garmin GPSmap 60CSx it says "Are you sure you want to send data in DEMO-ONLY mode?"

 

What does demo-only mean? It seems to work, but I wonder if I should be concerned about.

 

I have not purchased any maps or anything else.

 

Thanks.

The 60CSx is in Demo mode when the GPS receiver in the unit is disabled. In the satellite screen, press the Menu button once to bring up the pop-up menu. You should see a menu option to turn the receiver on.

 

Thanks imajeep for replying,

 

I double checked and its not in demo mode.. and I use the unit, it works great.

 

My problem is Mapsource software itself, when I send do my unit it says "send to unit in DEMO-ONLY format".. It works, so Im going to ignore it and click yes everytime, it just doesnt seem right.

That really is quite odd. I've never seen MapSource do that. Might be worth a call to Garmin tech support. They are generally pretty helpful.

This could be happening because "DEMO" has been typed in as an unlock code in Mapsource. Try going to your Utilities in Mapsource, open up the unlock wizard and then "View my installed unlock codes". If you see one that says "DEMO" delete it and then resend your maps. If you send maps to your GPSr with a Demo code, it will put your GPSr into Demo mode. Hope this helps, and if not at least it was worth a try!

It turns out one of the kids was trying to do something he shouldn't of... thanks for the help.
