Just purchased new Garmin 60Csx

Recommended Posts

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?

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
