2. Attach gps to computer using cable.

3.go to top of mapsource page and hit “transfer” icon at top of page

4. It should then find the gps and list it if not hit “find GPS” icon

5. Select “routes” and “waypoints” boxes then hit send

6. Once a message saying the info has been sent is displayed waite 20 seconds then disconnect gps from computer

7. Turn gps on and go to “main menu” and select “routes”

8. Scroll down to the route where you are starting from and hit enter

9. Select “navigate” then wait till you see the purple line and then follow it.

10. When you run out of purple line hit the “page ” button and go to “main Menu”

11 select routes and hit enter then select the next route and hit enter then select “navigate once more and follow the purple line once again.

The only difference between the 62 s and the 60csx is the 62 s  will select the next route automatically and you just need to hit enter where the 60 csx you simply need to find the next route manually and this would simply be the next letter in the alphabet. 

Some set up tricks

1. When hard wiring these units to the bikes make it so they have continual power. When first using the unit hold the power button in and you will see a brightness icon come on push the arrow keys to get maximum brightness.

2. A small piece of rag at the bottom of the mount will help hold the unit steady so it is easier to read.

3. “Tracks” when setting up the unit set it to “auto wrap” tracks. Otherwise you need to remember to clear the track log each day.

4. When in the coastal country set the scale to 300 meters and when at Yunta set the scale at about 1 km.

5. Half the problems i have seen with these units is when people connect and disconnect the power supply on the bike . Just do it carefully and without gloves. I would also recommend a zip tie around the unit and the bracket on the 60csx so you don’t lose it.
