Question Garmin GPSmap 60CSx - Routing Issue

I'm having an issue with my Garmin GPS and wondered whether anybody has any insight into this issue.

I will plot a route in Mapsource, upload it into the GPS, access it and it shows up on screen. I use 2 fields on the top of the map page, the distance to next and the pointer which, both functioning properly. I proceed on the route with the pointer showing the proper directions and the DTN counting down as I progress along the route. I pass what I presume is a plot point (waypoint or mouse click when creating the route) and the pointer immediately swings around pointing backwards and the DTN commences counting up rather than down. If I go into the route menu and select reverse route the GPS functions properly again until I get to the next plot point. It appears as if the GPS route function is unable to release the plot point to proceed to the next point in the route.

I have completed the manual reset a couple of times and that doesn't correct it. I have reviewed the menu options and don't see anything out of the ordinary that I'm missing. Has anyone else experienced this problems or have any ideas on how to correct this issue?

Life ain't about how fast you ride, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.

Sounds like you are not arriving exactly at the Via point, so it continues to route you to it.
