HELP PLEASE...Can't upload caches to my Garmin GPSmap 60CSx

Recommended Posts

When I try to upload a geocache, I get this error message:   "Adobe Acrobat Reader could not open GC59VHA(1).gpx because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn’t correctly decoded)"     Obviously, the GC# is unique to the cache I was trying to load onto my GPS unit, therefore it changes with each cache I attempt to load.

Can someone... ANYONE please help me?

I guess the easiest way would be to connect your GPS via USB with your computer, then just drag the .gpx file into the GPX folder on the unit.

Type in "60csx" in the search (top right above this thread) and look at the few options that may be left.  

GSAK seems to still be okay.  EasyGPS still says on it's site that it supports your device with GPX files too. 

I've loaded caches on mine manually since starting,  and it takes less than two minutes each with coordinates and cache name.

A small notepad holds hints, and any other pertinent information. 

Your most finds was 11 in one day, so if you're going to stick with a long-discontinued GPSr, that's an option too.   :)

Although it might seem a bit daunting to have to download and learn yet another program, I also recommend using GSAK.  It's really the quickest and easiest way that I've been able to load what I want onto the 60CSx.
