I recently got a Garmin 60csx and for some reason when I look at the manual the icons on the pages do not look anything like the icons I have. The manual has more than the unit. I did the web updater and it has the current patches drivers and everything. Any help on this would be great. I have a Garmin 60cs and the icons look better and there are more on that unit than on this one. Maybe I am doing something wrong or I need to click something but I canít find it. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Along with what Tie said, you can add or delete pages from the normal rotation (what pages show up when you hit PAGE to move forward or QUIT to move backwards). Anything you normally use should be in this rotation, so you can just page to it. I have the satellite page, the active route page, the compass page, the map page, the tracks page, the trip computer page and the menu page, which holds all the rest of the icons. You can theoretically remove all these except the menu page and just navigate from the menu, but this is much slower in practice than just stepping through the rotation with the page key. To change your rotation, choose setup from the menu, then choose Page Sequence. You can add pages, remove pages, or change the sequence. If you accidentally remove the main menu page (don't do this!), you can recover by hitting the include all button.

If you don't have a manual for this unit, you can download one at www.garmin.com.

Saw this post last evening, but didn't have my GPS unit at school to answer or possibly confuse you more... Thank goodness Team Deejay and Bye The Tie beat me with what I hope are better solutions.

I purchased my Map 60CSx shortly before they up-graded to the new unit. The part number for my catalog (and yours?)is 190-00482-00 Rev. E (If this helps).

I've also heard of reconditioned units that have a difference in the way they present. If your unit is one of those; just a thought.

Depending on what maps you load or don't load (ie. topo, city navigator, blue water), you'll get more icons.

Tom is actually correct. If you install Street Navigator, you will have the highway screen and the active route screen. Otherwise, these screens will not be available.

Yea I found out through the GC.com web forums that the Map source topo that I am using does not have any POI so I donít get all the icons on the found page like they show in the manual. That is what I was wondering about. I show 5 icons and the manual shows over 7 icons. That was were I was getting confused the other thing is the icons on my 60cs looks better than the ones on my 60csx it is weird the ones on my 60csx look old and outdated where as the ones on the 60cs look cleaner and newer it is weird. But the 60csx works like a champ.

The Mapsource topographic maps were on my Christmas list.

I was naughty but it sounds like you were nice!

I'm not a big fan of those topo maps. They are great if you are in a large, wilderness area or national park, but when you get into the real world, the detail provided is less than helpful. You will find that a power line looks a lot like a railroad, which looks a lot like a highway. Trying to do manual road navigation with these maps is pretty frustrated. I remember one time when Julie is navigating, saying "OK, turn left up here on "Railroad St." Turned out to be an actual railroad. Oops!

Scrappy, can I just say you were in the right place at the right time, to pick up a second 60csx, at the right price .. hey?

So true! What I like though is when you get into that wilderness, especially outside of geocaching, they bring you to some really neat places you didn't know about. (That was how discovered and placed two of my last three caches, in my "No Name Lake Series" for un-named lakes in Northern Wisconsin)

I was hoping for the topo micro card so I could switch back and forth.

Actually, as long as you have memory, you can load both (or even more map sets.) The catch is that the Topo Maps are VERY memory intensive, so you would only want to load the maps for specifically where you are going. To change what map is displayed, go to Setup, then Map, then click the Anchor icon, and check which map you want active.
