GPSr Units / New 60csx owner - have some questions
« on: December 30, 2011, 01:30:26 PM »
Hello. I finally have all my maps uploaded thanks to the help I got on this forum. I plan on using this mostly for hunting/hiking. I do have some other questions though:

1. In the settings for the Compass, my options for North Reference are - True, Magnetic, Grid, and User..... Which should I select?

2. How do I send data to Basecamp from my device and vice versa (i.e. waypoints, tracks, routes, etc)? If I download new maps to my device from Basecamp, does that erase all my waypoints? Do they transfer?

3. Are there any default settings that I need to change?

4. Batteries - currently I have AA alkaline in it. Should I switch to rechargeable? If so, is there a specific brand? Thanks...

Thanks for the help....

I think I figured it all out... Multiple maps appear to be in there now. Thanks for all the help!

I'm confused....
You said:
"The trick is to use the dropdown menu in Mapsource to select each map you want, then use the Map tool to select the portion of each map you want to send to your 60csx. Then you can send all of them in one package such that they're all included in the same gmapsupp.img file."

I'm using BaseCamp to transfer into my 60csx... How do I transfer multiple maps at once to my device?

Ok... I really appreciate all the help... I think I just figured it out (with you all's help of course). I downloaded Basecamp and when I opened it up, the Florida Topo was in there! Using the tutorial, I appear to have downloaded the Florida Topo to my 60csx!!!!! I'm in my office right now so I can't get satellite reception, but when I go to the map page on my device, it appears to have detailed info.... Now here is my next question, if I want to to download some more maps, do I just use the Tutorial again? Isn't there something, like you have to use all the maps at the same time (for example, if I try to download just one more map, won't it just overwrite the Florida TOpo? Don't I have to download the new map and the Florida Topo all over again? and when I say download, I mean transfer from Basecamp to my 60csx...

Also, Boyd, since I appear to have everything working, I will probably just leave the MapSource alone as per your suggestion. Thanks for the update info... I was doing that wrong. Does Basecamp update automatically or do I have to manually update on occasion? Thanks again to everyone for your quick responses and help!!!!!

Ok... At this point, I have downloaded MapSource (I ran the web updater and it did have the latest software) and I downloaded the Florida Topo map that didn't show up... You suggest that I download Basecamp.

So at this point should I uninstall MapSource? Uninstall the Florida Topo and try downloading again? Thanks... for your help

Also, when I go to Add/Remove Programs on my computer, I see the Florida Topo Map on there, so I know it downloaded... Why can't I see it on MapSource?????

Hello. Just got a 60csx. Downloaded MapSource using the CD ROM that came with the device. I came to this website and tried to download the Florida Topo map. I have read the tutorial from this website (How To Download Maps on My Garmin GPS Unit). After the Flordia Topo download completed I went to my MapSource on my desktop and the drop down box (step 2 of the tutorial) is not there at all.... What am I missing? The map appeard to download completely. Thanks....
