Garmin GPSMAP 60C Questions and Answers

Question: I don't know whether you'll be able to help or not, but I have recently dug out my old Garmin GPSMAP 60c handheld module because my kids are looking to do some Geocaching.

I only ever used it for Grid References, so I never really looked into the unit that much, and I'd like to try and put some maps onto the unit, but with it being so old, it's proving a little tricky to find any reliable information about what mapping is available for it online.

Most sources tend to end up pointing me in the direction of 1:250,000 SD Cards, which are no good, because the 60c doesn't have a card slot, so I just wondered whether you could advise me on what mapping is available for my unit, and whether you can supply it?

Answer: The short answer is that no hiking/walking/OS mapping is available for the Garmin GPSMAP 60 series.

The longer answer is the TOPO maps that were compatible with the Garmin GPSMAP 60 series were discontinued around 2015 and replaced with GB Discoverer maps. The GB Discoverer series has since been replaced by the new TOPO series.

Due to the age of the Garmin GPSMAP 60 series none of the GB Discoverer or new TOPO series maps are compatible with Garmin GPSMAP 60 series. You would need to buy a Garmin GPSMAP 62 series or later series for the maps to function.

The two best selling TOPO GB maps are:

1. Garmin TOPO Great Britain V3 PRO 1:50K microSD/SD card
2. Garmin TOPO Great Britain V3 PRO 1:25K microSD/SD card

The bottom line to use maps for hiking/walking you would need to buy a later Garmin handheld device that is compatible.

Question: Can you let me have a pricelist for spare parts for the Garmin GPSMap 60C?

The rather thin stainless spring contacts for the battery box have fractured at the sharp bend that forms the spring.

If you do not have a spare battery box, grateful if you can suggest any sites that may have other fix's to what I am told is a common problem with Garmin GPSs.

Answer: The only parts we sell for the Garmin GPSMap 60C are listed on the GPSMAP 60C accessory page.

We do not, and have never sold the stainless spring contacts. You will need to contact Garmin to see if they can assist you.
