Re: 60CSx Powering Off Beeping

Did you check if your latest tracks were recorded to the microSD card? Before replacing the card, I suggest you try to reformat it first. Make sure you backup the data in the card before you reformat. Good luck. PS Trying to help you save RM10 for a new 1GB mem card :mrgreen: Last few times it happ...

So I copy out all the stuff in the card, reformat it and copy them back in when done. They has been working like a charm since than. In my case, I s...

Re: 60CSx Powering Off Beeping

Hey I think I found out the problem with the incessant beeping when the device is turned off... Seems to be due to the amount of data/files accumulated in the MicroSD i.e. the number of .gpx files over time. I cleared out some of the older files and so far so good! Unit shuts down properly now. Just...

Re: 60CSx Powering Off Beeping

This would mean it'll drain the batts not to mention that I can't...

Re: Can GPSr lock on satellites while in aeroplane in flight?

These "tools" are not allowed on hand-carry luggage anymore after 7-11). Bro, i think you meant 9-11? :-k Since a GPSr is not a transmitting device (unless it is one of those Nuvi models with FM transmitter :-' ) I don't see how it is not permitted compared to the digital camera.

Uzbek airlines from KL-Tashkent-Simferopol, tracked all the way without any signal loss. Window seat/ 2nd from...
