Using the Map Setup Feature
The map display for your GPSmap 60 can be customized. A factory
set of default settings currently controls the Map Page display and may
be satisfactory for your current requirements. The Map Setup pages allow
you to determine how map features appear on the page by controlling
map orientation, text size, track display, map item display, detailed map
data display and more. It is suggested that you wait until you are more
familiar with the operation of your unit before deciding what features you
want to customize.
The “General Settings” Map Setup Page
Many of the Setup fea-
tures use the same type of option lists; Off/On, Most
to Least, Small to Large, a
scale from 20 feet to 500 miles and a keypad for numerical data entry.
The Map Setup
allows you to quickly restore map settings.
