    Garmin 60cx help!

    I can not get my new Garmin to work correctly, When I try to use the compass mode the pointer is not there, all I get is= ..... ....., no arrow will show. What am I doing wrong?

    Two things I can think of...

    Make sure you have a cache (or some other destination) chosen by using the "Find" button. I believe the compass doesn't work unless its got something to point to.

    Calibrate your compass. From the compass screen choose "Menu" and calibrate compass. I have to do this a lot... (makes me dizzy!).

    Those are my ideas... Hope maybe one of them will help. Its a great unit, I love mine!

    When on the navigation page, or the "compass" page press "Menu".

    You should get a list of options, go to and select "Bearing Pointer" and press "ENTR" OR "ENTER". That should give you the "Pointer" that will "point" the way.

    I have a 60csx and that is how I get, so I think it should be the same for your model.

    My New Garmin and Cashing friends!

    I show my new Garmin to AR-Hick and Woodwalker, and I think they decided that the unit was defected, The compass needle did not show for them either.

    I had that same problem with mine when I first got it at the beginning of the year but I cannot remember how I finally got it to work. If it comes to me I will let you know. Good Luck!!

    Might also want to check the garmin website and make sure you have the latest firmware version. Its quick and easy to install.
