GPSr Units / Re: Keep my GPSmap60csx or upgrade?
« on: July 07, 2016, 12:54:09 AM »
I have no problem formatting to the fat 32 file system.

I found this site: http://www.asiteaboutnothing.net/g_60csx.html and considering installing all of the maps I want on the 2gb card, but only naming the mapset I want to use gmapsupp.img and keeping the rest of the maps labeled as something else, so that If I do want to switch mapsets, all I have to do is rename the file I want to use to gmapsupp.img instead of using mapsource every time to re-load.

Has anyone had any luck using this method?

Either that or I will just use a few different sd cards instead.

This is all great help! thank you so much!

I am working out of the country for another 2 weeks, but when I get back home, I will be sure to update the firmware and try and load some different maps.

According to the garmin site, I can use a 4gb sd card after updating the firmware right?

Thank you for the help! I will try and revive this old gps and see if I can get some good use out of it.  I will be hiking a few peaks in colorado at the end of the month, and doing a 6 day trip through the wind river mountains in wyoming the first week of august. Some good topo maps on the gps would be a big help compared to using a map and compass the whole way. (although I will carry those as a backup)

I am new to the forum, and very new to using gps maps.  I have experience with navigation, but not with these particular devices.  I have a gpsmap 60csx that I inherited, but it does not have any maps uploaded on it other than the basemap. 

I found this site, and am planning on using the texas, new mexico, colorado, and wyoming topo maps, and some trail overlays, but am not sure if that is possible with the 60csx due to the map size limitation.  Do I need to put each map on a separate sd card and switch cards when i go into different areas?  Or do I have to load different maps with mapsource or basecamp every time I want to use a different map?

Is it possible to load the US OSM Auto map alongside the topo maps, and select which map I want to display on the device, so i can navigate on the road, or trail?  I want to try and use this gps, but if it is too much of a hassle I may get a different one. Is this worth keeping?

I am looking at the etrex 30, gpsmap 64st, or oregon 700 as alternatives.

I would appreciate any advice/input from other 60csx owners.  Thanks!
