I'm the guy who never programmed a VCR. Still blinks 12:00. My GPS story is roughly the same. I bought a Garmin 60cs in 2005 for an Alaska trip, and I did register it online with Garmin. It holds only 56mb (tiny amount) of map data, so I used it without maps--just for the statistics, compass and base map. I finally figured out how to load maps years later using "Trip and Waypoint Manager" disc ("Mapsource?") and some map disc (not sure which one). I could get about 1/2 of California onto the unit at a time, and the blue trail of tracks it left behind me usually ran out before my day of riding did. Meh. Eventually lost the maps disk. Eventually got rid of the laptop with the mapping software on it. Still have the Trip & Waypoint Manager disc. A couple years ago I wanted to update my maps and start using the 60cs like it was meant to be used. I used some kind of coupon, was sent "City Navigator North America v8". I installed it on the computer, and used the code to unlock it (it says "unlocked" now), but for whatever reason my 60cs cannot read the maps. It receives the maps, but it says "maps locked" on the device. I suspect City Nav NA v8 just not compatible with this device and never will be. Sigh. So I went onto mygarmin.com, and I understand now that this model 60cs is discontinued, and there are no maps for it. None at all! I have a Garmin Topo US 2008 and that works--for hiking. Didn't even need an unlock code. But I need road directions, gas stations, etc. I have a wonderful Touratech mount (non-locking) and a ram ball joint for handlebars. I have cables to wire it into the bike directly, and a cable to wire it to a 12-v cigarette outlet, neither ever used. I always used AA batteries. They last 3 days, and are sold everywhere. I really don't want to buy a new device when this one still works great, I have the cradle and wires, and there's nothing wrong with it. So the question is, what if anything can I with it now? Are there places where I can download compatible maps for it? Do I use Trip & Waypoint Manager (Mapsource) to load them just like the original map program it came with? Do any of these work with a Mac? I have a PC too, if necessary. My last resort seems to be tossing the perfectly good 60cs and getting a 60csx and buying a new map disc. But that's $600 at least! Thanks, and sorry to be a noob. Brain RAM space full of other things, I'm afraid.
