Just purchased new Garmin 60Csx

5 posts in this topic

I just got this new gps and i'm looking to purchase a chip. Do the lakemaster and navonics chips both show state and wildlifemanagment areas on them ? What chip seems to be more detailed, or in other words what one is better ?

Sorry but you cannot get Navionics for it. However there is a new Lakemaster for 09 that has a lot of updates on it. It is an awesome GPS, have had mine since that model came out.

I would suggest going to Garmin's HSOforum and look up that chip to see whats on it.

I would also suggest getting the cd version that loads into the computer. Reason is that now with 2 handheld's I still have only one chip. Get the cd and be able to put it on 2 units if need be.

I agree, with Garmin your mapping options are LakeMaster (specifically for Garmin) or any of Garmin's proprietary mapping products. For what you're asking about I think the LM card is a better way to go.

I'd need to check for sure but I don't think the CD version will let you download lake contours to your handheld unit, at least not on multiple cards. They build that type of protection into the cards and programs to prevent unauthorized copies, etc. I have the LakeMaster CD program that I use with my Lowrance units and I can view contours on my computer screen but can only transfer waypoints (not contours) to my GPS units.

I just got my LakeMaster CD-ROM yesterday ,,,I ordered it from Garmin as LakeMaster doesnt have the 09 Mn CD-ROM yet ,,I was told by Garmin they had 42 copies of the 09 CD but for some reason I recieved the 08 version ,,,I dealt with LM on this issue since mid May and now I still dont have any thing I can use on Lake Superior

Back on topic tho Yes you can download contours to the Garmin data card and it will also download to hand helds as I have a Rino 120 ,,,I do like my Garmin units but this issue has been frusterating

I haven't looked lately but when they added the card reader, did they eliminate the on-board memory so you have to download the map data to a card and then insert the card in the handheld?

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
