    Default Garmin update

    Gob-ler had this posted on the other site so thought I would share it with you here as well.

    For the 60 csx/cx.

    go to:

    http://www8.garmin.com/support/colle...t=999-99999-27

    and download the latest version of web updater for Garmin.

    Plug your 60 csx/cx into the computer port and run web updater.

    Version 3.00 will be downloaded and installed.

    Thanks for the tip. Garmin's Web Updater makes keeping a unit up to date (which is important) SO EASY! It's something everyone should be doing on a regular basis even if your GPSr is working fine.

    Could you post a link for exactly what thread that came from? The link isn't complete and I'd like to see what that page has for information. Garmin's website lists the most current software for the Cx/CSx as "Ver. 3.50 as of Aug 02, 2007"; not version 3. Gob-ler may want to run the updater again.
    How come we choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?

    There are two software items for the garmin GPS. The software version is version 3.50 and the GPS Software Version is version 3.00.

    Two completely different things.

    Hummm, let me try and clear it up.

    In the gps, there is a set of software that sets the parameters that the sirf chipset and hardware uses. This is what enables the gps to know what is what as it relates to satellites and so forth. I maybe wrong, but it is kind of like the operating system for your computer. This is the software upgrade that I posted about, it is GPS Software Version 3.00 for the Garmin GPSMAP 60scx/sx.

    Then there is software within the gps itself that sets how the data received from the unit is intrepreted for us the users to understand and use. For instance, one of the functions that has seen several upgrades in the past was the Compass feature. There have been several tweaks and fixes for that alone. Other things as well like how the memory cards are used have been tweaked and there is a list on the Garmin Web Sight that tells what all of these have been. The latest version for these items is software version 3.50.

    I know it is confusing, but that is how it works. Most all GPS receivers have software that relates to the hardware functions and then more software that relates to the actual software functions within the units.

    Does that make any sense at all?
