Introduction
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of Garmin is to
provide customers with the most complete and accurate cartography that
is available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private data sources, which we identify as required in product
literature and copyright messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually
all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some degree.
This is particularly true outside the United States, where complete and
accurate digital data is either not available or prohibitively expensive.
Warnings and Precautions
WARNING: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the
United States government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. The system is subject to changes which could affect the
accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. Although the Garmin
GPSmap 60C is a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any
NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
WARNING: This product, its packaging, and its components contain
chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects,
or reproductive harm. This Notice is being provided in accordance with
California’s Proposition 65. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please refer to our web site at http://www.garmin.com/

Getting Started
Initialization & the Satellite Page
The GPSmap 60C locates satellites above its position
Starting Up the GPS Receiver
Whenever you turn on the GPSmap 60C, the GPS receiver begins to
search for satellites in order to determine its location which is necessary
for navigation. This process is called “initialization” and can take up to
15 minutes the first time you use your unit. Thereafter, if you haven’t
moved move than 600 miles from your original location, it takes only
seconds to minutes. In order to receive satellite signals, you must be
outdoors and have a clear view of the sky. Satellite signals cannot pass
through solid materials (except glass) or dense overhead tree cover. To
shorten the time required for this first initialization, select “New Location”
from the options menu, then you can use the Map Page to determine
your general location so the GPSmap 60C can search for just those satellites above your position.
To initialize your GPSmap 60C:
1. Press and release the POWER key to turn on the unit.
2. Observe the Welcome Page followed by the Satellite Page.
Options
Menu
Satellite Page Acquiring Satellite Signals
3. While the GPS receiver is searching for the satellite signals, an
“Acquiring Satellites” message appears at the top of the page.
You will also observe a sky view array of the satellites overhead
with your position centered in the array. The outer circle represents the
horizon and the inner circle a position 45o from the horizon. The numbers displayed indicate the number assigned to each satellite. A bar graph
displays the strength of signals from each satellite.

4. When the receiver has signals from at least three satellites, the
display at the top of the page will change to indicate position
accuracy and location coordinates. The Status Bar at the top of
the display indicates the GPS status and status of other features.
If, for any reason, you have difficulty initializing your GPSmap 60C,
the solution could be as simple as moving slightly to avoid objects that
are blocking or deflecting the satellite signals.
5. Press and Release the PAGE key until the Map Page is displayed. You are now ready to begin GPS aided navigation.

Active Navigation is supported by three of the Main Pages:
The Map Page graphically shows you map details, your current location, marks your route to a destination with a route line, and leaves a trail
(track log) of where you’ve been.
The Compass Page indicates direction to go and direction of travel.
The Trip Computer Page records and displays travel data.
There are three methods of navigating to a destination when using the
GPSmap 60C’, each graphically displayed on the Map Page.
Go To - A direct path to a selected destination (waypoint, city, address, etc.).
Track - A previous path of travel that has been stored (logged) in the
GPSmap 60C. A Track allows you to repeat a path or return on the path.
Route - A path to a destination consisting of intermediate stops along
the way (waypoints, cities, exits, points of interest, intersections, etc.).
Refer to the sections on Tracks, Routes and Waypoints for details.

Status Bar, Backlighting and On-Screen Messages
At the top of each page, a Status Bar (which is always displayed)
provides current status information for several unit features.
• Power to the unit is provided by either the batteries or from
an auxiliary source (AC or DC Adapter). The Battery Power icon
displays the remaining power as the battery becomes depleted.
• Satellite signal status is shown when searching for (acquiring)
satellites, when a two-dimensional fix is attained and when four or
more satellites have been received (three dimensional fix).
• Backlighting is Off when you power up the unit. When On, it
uses a significant amount of battery power. This icon displays
when the backlight is functioning.
• Alarm Clock: this icon displays whenever the Alarm is set.
• USB cable connection displays when the unit is in communication with a PC Universal Serial Bus.
You may want to adjust the backlight level by pressing down on the
POWER key and releasing. Then tap the POWER key or ROCKER key
Up/Down arrows to cycle through the levels of backlight adjustment. See
page 44 for information on changing the display colors and backlight
timeout and brightness levels.
Whenever a significant event in the operation of the unit occurs, an
on-screen message will display to advise you of the occurrence. In each
case the condition is described and often a remedy provided. Pressing the
ENTER key will acknowledge and close the message window.

Using the Map Page
The Map Page is the primary navigation feature of the GPSmap 60C.
The Map Page displays a detailed map of the area surrounding your current location. It allows you to pan the map with the ROCKER key as well
as view your progress when navigating. When in the “Track Up” mode
(oriented in the direction of travel), a north reference arrow appears at the
top left corner to orient the map. When in the “North Up” mode the map
is oriented like a paper map. When you activate the Track Log feature,
your path of movement is indicated by a dotted line. The map display can
be changed to “Night” mode for easier viewing in dim light. The factory
set default automatically changes the display at sunrise and sunset.
The map also displays geographic details such as rivers, lakes, highways and towns. The maps to the left show a higher level of detail than
the basemap provided with the unit (i.e. residential streets, parks, etc.)
because Garmin MapSource® detailed mapping data has been downloaded
from a CD-ROM program.
You can use the Map Page to:
• Determine your current location and progress while moving
• Select and save a map point as a waypoint.
• Locate and navigate to map items by following a Route displayed
on the map.
• Customize the map display to your requirements.

Using Map Page Features
Use the Zoom In and Out buttons to change the map scale in order to
show more map area with less detail or less map area with more detail.
Press and hold to Zoom the map scale rapidly.
The map scale in the lower left hand side of the display is shown in
units of measurement selected in the “Units” field of the Unit Setup Page
(not to be confused with the Map Setup Page). If you zoom in so far that
the resolution of the map data is exceeded and the appearance of the map
is no longer accurate, the word, “overzoom” displays just below the map
scale. When using MapSource detailed maps, “mapsource” appears below
the scale.
In many instances the map displays an “Accuracy Circle” surrounding the “Position Icon”. The GPSmap 60C uses both map resolution and
GPS accuracy in defining your location to a point within the circle. The
smaller the circle, the more accurate your location.
When using the “Pan Map” feature, a small outline arrow (Panning
Arrow) can be moved about the page to highlight and identify map items
or to scroll the map to view areas not shown on the display screen. If
there are more than one map items under the Panning Arrow. a list of
those items displays with the item highlighted on the map, also highlighted on the list.
Optional data fields can be added at the top of the display to provide a
variety of travel and navigational information, see pages that follow.
When navigating, Guidance Text will be displayed at the top of the map.

The Compass Ring

moving.
Compass Page
Course Pointer
Bearing Pointer
The Course Pointer
indicates your
course of travel
and the distance
you drift off
course.
The Bearing
Pointer always
indicated the
direction to your
destination.
Using the Compass Page
The Compass Page is your guide to accurate and efficient navigation. It
uses traditional navigation displays to provide navigation information.
Whenever navigation is in progress, the Compass Page provides
navigation data and directions. It uses a graphic compass display and a
bearing pointer along with digital data fields to display information such
as current speed, distance to the next point on the route, estimated arrival
time, etc. You can choose from three or four data fields and select the
type of data displayed in each from a list of options.
When moving, the rotating graphic compass indicates the direction
you are heading. The Bearing Pointer indicates the direction (bearing) to
your destination, relative to your current heading direction. The compass
dial and bearing pointer work independently to show your direction
of movement and the direction to your destination. For instance, if the
arrow points straight up, you are headed directly to the next point. If the
arrow points any other direction other than up, move in the direction of
the arrow until it points up again, then continue in that direction. You
can choose between a Bearing Pointer or a Course Pointer for guidance.
The compass does not function as a magnetic compass when you are
stationary. However when you move, the dial rotates to keep you oriented
in relation to North. This is especially helpful when using a paper map in
conjunction with your unit for navigation.

2. The first option is “Stop Navigation” which can be highlighted
and activated by pressing ENTER to stop navigating.
3. The second option is “Course Pointer” or “Bearing Pointer”.
The Bearing Pointer and Compass Ring work independently of the
direction of your movement and the direction to your destination. The
Bearing Pointer always points directly to the destination, no matter what
your current location might be.
For example: if the arrow is pointing straight up, you are going
directly to your destination. If it points any direction other than up, turn
towards that direction until the arrow is pointing up and then continue
in that direction. If you are using the ‘Course Pointer’ option instead and
you drift away from the line of travel to your destination, the Course
Deviation Indicator (CDI) provides graphic indication of drift (right or
left) and displays the distance off course.
4. The third option is “Data Fields”. Highlight the data fields

Using the Find Menu
The Find Feature provides you with a method for searching for
Waypoints, Cities, Exits and Geocache Points which are included in the
GPSmap 60C basemap. If you have downloaded Garmin MapSource
mapping data that contains additional map detail, you can search for
and find Points of Interest, Addresses and Intersections. If you download BlueChart® data, you can find Marine Points such as Wrecks and
Obstructions, NAVAIDS, and Anchorages. If this additional data is not
loaded, these options are not available.
Searching for a map item is simplified by separating the map database
into groups which are shown as icons on the Find Menu Page.
• When you access a Find group list, by default it will contain only
those items near your current location or the Panning Arrow (if

Using Tracks
Using a Track Log
The Tracks feature creates an electronic trail on the map page as you
travel about and is referred to as a Track Log. A track log contains information about points along its path, including time, position, elevation and
depth (requires NMEA input, see page 44).
Use a Track Log to:
• Record your movements for a given time and place and save it.
• Measure the area of any space you encompass with a track.
• Retrace your path in either direction.

Creating and Using a Route
Route navigation allows you to create a sequence of intermediate
waypoints which lead you to your final destination. The GPSmap 60C stores
50 routes, each with up to 250 waypoints each. A route can be created and
modified from the Routes Page, and waypoints can be added to a route
from the Find Menu. More complex routes can be created using a PC and
MapSource mapping programs and then transferred to the unit memory.

Methods of navigating to a destination:
• When you activate the “Go To” button on the Information Page for a
User Waypoint or other Find Menu items, the GPSmap 60C creates
a straight path (point to point) from your current location to that
location.
• When you press the “Navigate” button on a Route page the GPSmap
60C creates a route composed of several User Waypoints or Find
Menu items, with the last being your destination. It navigates
directly from point to point. Before each turn in the route a turn
page displays a guidance message and graphic of the turn. You can
view the turns at any time by pressing the ROCKER key Up or
Down arrows while the route is active.
• These two navigation methods change when you select the “Follow
Roads” option from the Routing Setup Page. Both Go To navigation
and point to point routing become routes that allow you to navigate
using roads.
The routes use existing roadways (either those in the basemap or
from downloaded detail mapping) to automatically calculate a route
to your destination. Turns on roadways are added to the active route
page and will be preceded by a guidance message with graphic
display of the turn.
If there are not enough roads at your location to calculate a route, a
message will display to advise you.

Nibbons
In this GPS game, you must walk around the board collecting the
flags as they appear. As you walk, your “tail” will grow. You may travel
anywhere on the screen but you cannot walk on your tail, or you will lose
a life. As an added challenge, you must also avoid the Skulls that chase
after you.
Gekoids
This GPS game, which can be played without GPS on, is all about
blasting gekoids. The catch is, you are the ship and you can survive only
when you avoid getting hit. Before you begin to play, make certain to
make your game settings. Orient Map “Northwards” rotates your ship
in the center of the map. The map is stationary and north is always up.
Orient Map “Ship Up” rotates the virtual world around your ship. Your
ship always points Up.
Press the ENTER key to start and blast away!
IMPORTANT WARNING: When playing any of the virtual games
(where you are moving about on a real playing field), use reasonable and
prudent caution in selecting an area free of hazards such a holes, obstructions or proximity to vehicular traffic. Playing these games may distract
your attention from observing objects in your path.

Transferring MapSource Map Data
If you have purchased a Garmin MapSource CD-ROM mapping
program you may want to transfer detailed map data before beginning
use, to provide your unit with maximum Find features and mapping
capability. The GPSmap 60C accepts up to 56 MB of map data from most
MapSource products. It is not possible to transfer 3rd party maps into
Garmin products.
You cannot view multiple types of MapSource data in the same location at the same time (one will draw over the other). When you leave a
MetroGuide area for example and enter the area of a topographic map,
the display will change to contour lines. The same is true when moving
from a topo map to a MetroGuide map.
Maps that are at the top of the hierarchy and will replace any other
map information. Because new maps are constantly being released, consult your Garmin Dealer or the Garmin website to determine the order of
hierarchy.
Map data transfer requires the use of a PC, a Garmin MapSource CDROM, and the Universal Service Bus (USB) cable supplied with this unit.
Follow detailed instructions for data transfer in the MapSource User’s
Manual.
Downloading MapSource

Garmin MapSource
CD-ROM’s offer a variety of detailed mapping

What are Map Datums, and which should I use?
A datum is a mathematical model of the Earth which approximates
the shape of the Earth, and enables calculations to be carried out in a
consistent and accurate manner. The datum is physically represented by
a framework of ground monuments (i.e. trig. stations) whose positions
have been accurately measured and calculated on this reference surface.
Lines of latitude and longitude on a map or chart are referenced to a
specific map datum. Every chart has a map datum reference and the
GPSmap 60C can be set to match most of those commonly used.
Map Datums and Position Formats
If you are navigating and comparing the GPS coordinates to a map,
chart or other reference, the map datum in the GPS unit should be
set to the same datum as the map or chart to insure the most accurate
navigation.
What is a Position Format, and which should I use?
Your current location can be viewed on the GPS in the form of
coordinates. Since different maps and charts use different location
formats, Garmin GPS units allow you to choose the correct coordinate
system for the type of map you are using. The most common format is
latitude and longitude, which is utilized by all Garmin units. On most
models, you may choose to change the position format to use with other
coordinate systems. UTM/UPS (Universal Transverse Mercator/Universal
Polar Stereographic) are easy-to-use metric grids that are found on most
USGS topographic quadrangle maps. Several other grids, including a
user-definable grid (for the advanced user), may also be selected.

WAAS and DGPS
What is WAAS?
The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is an F.A.A. funded
project to improve the overall integrity of the GPS signal. It is a spacebased system that broadcasts integrity information and correction data as
determined by ground reference stations (see DGPS below). At this time
the system is still in the developmental stage with a goal of providing
reliable signals with an accuracy of 7 meters (21-22 ft.) both horizontally
and vertically 95% of the time. Current tests have shown the actual accuracy to be on the order of 2-3 meters. For more information, go to
http://gps.faa.gov/Programs/WAAS/waas.htm.
What is Differential GPS (DGPS)?
The U.S. and Canadian governments (among others) have set up
Differential GPS (DGPS) stations to transmit correction signals. They are
operational in coastal areas and on many navigable river systems. The
DGPS system is available for use without fee.
In addition to compensating for errors in the position, these corrections signals can also correct for deliberate degradation of the accuracy of
GPS by the U.S. Department of Defense under their Selective Availability
(SA) program.
Refer to the U.S. Coast Guard’s web site: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/
for locations and the status of the differential sites. Using DGPS requires
additional equipment.

this manual. The input/output lines on your GPSmap 60C are RS-232
compatible, allowing easy interface to a wide range of external devices,
including PC’s, differential beacon receivers, marine autopilots and /or a
second GPS receiver.
The NMEA 0183 version 3.0 interface format is supported by the
GPSmap 60C and enables the unit to drive up to three NMEA devices.

DGPS (Differential GPS) corrections are accepted in RTCM SC-104
version 2.0 format through the ‘Data In’ line. The Garmin GBR 21 and
GBR 23 are the recommended beacon receivers for use with the GPSmap
60C. Other beacon receivers with the correct RTCM format may be used,
but may not correctly display status or allow tuning control from the GPS
unit.
The USB Interface Cable provided with
this unit allows you to connect your GPSmap
60C to a PC-compatible computer’s USB port.
