    Tried a factory reset on gps, it keeps the same behavior!!
    Does anyone felt the same issues? I'm betting in something internally, eventually cutting the power to the system?!

    Re: GPSMAP 62/62CSx/62s/62st

    Hi, I have a garmin 62S, in the last few days it stopped to work as usual, it powers on, but as soon as it gets some bumps it disconnects, always use AA batteries, I've clean up the contacts but it seems to be something internal?!!
    Does anyone had similar issues with the GPS?
    Thank you.

    It is to fix. But I would have to have a receiver at home in the workshop.

    How to re-install original 100K topo to Garmin 62st - where is memory gone?

    Hi

    Could anyone help with this one -

    I copied gmapprom.img from my garmin 62st to a folder on my Mac using Finder. I them deleted the file from the Garmin using Finder

    When I re-attach the Garmin to the computer the Garmin doesn't appear to have anymore memory due to the map being deleted.

    Does anyone know where the memory goes when a file is deleted from the handheld Garmin 62st?

    Thanks very much for you time.

    Matt

    Re: GPSMAP 62 S Can't unlock CNNA 2011.1

    Thanks very much for this.

    Installing 2011.20 On 62s

    Ok this is some advice for people installing this Map on the new firmware GPS's ie 62s in my case.

    1. Install Mapsource 16.2
    2. Replace Mapsource.exe with the patched version
    3. Install 2011.20 Map 'Remember to use the file CNEUNT2011_20Update.msi under IMG Dir to install as other way asks for serial'
    4. Unlock the Map using Jetmouse 1.5 KeyGen 'Map code 2266'
    5. Select what Map you want or ALL of Europe
    6. Send to Device 'Select a HDD or GPS doesnt matter where'
    7. Find the file 'gmapsupp' which has been created 'I send mine to my HDD a its faster'
    8. Use Garmin unlocker Alternative v5.3 to unlock the Map.
    9. Copy the unlocked map back to the GPS /Garmin Directory.
    10. FINISHED

    NOTE:
    The reason why you have to do this method with the 62s and newer firmware GPS's is because they have a more sophisticated protection. If you don't follow these steps and just unlock the map with Mapsource then what happens is once it gets sent to the GPS and you turn on the GPS it will display 'CANT AUTHENTICATE'. Wont load the map.

    My method above works I have used it, I am not 100% sure if its the easiest or correct way but IT WORKS[/QUOTE]

    I live in the tropics and recently brought a sailboat down from Florida. Got hit by lightning, fried a lot of stuff including gps and laptop. I've replaced the gps with a couple of of the usb-gps engines, and bought a new laptop. I also bought a new Garmin 62s, thinking we could use it with the dinghy as a handheld, and it would also serve as backup to the catamaran's gps. I bought it because I owned a CSX and liked it. And the specs say it has a NMEA 0183 output, which I need to interface
    it to my new laptop running openCPN navigation software. Now here's the problem.
    I changed the setup of the 62s to NMEA, and plugged the USB to usb cable into my laptop. The display on the 62s goes into it's slave usb mode with that usb icon. I.e. it's not tracking, and it's not outputting data in NMEA format. I checked with the openCPN guys and they said I needed a Garimin software patch called Spanner. I looked up Spanner and found it doesn't support Windows 7. Remember I said I hadda buy a new laptop? Yep. Windows 7.

    SO, here I am, hat in hand, hoping someone here knows a way to get the 62s to perform to the spec I bought it for. A NMEA 103 output. Any ideas?
    In the setup menu try putting it in "Garmin Spanner" mode
