Just experienced this when powering down the set. Have to remove batteries. If the microSD card is removed, then it is fine. Thought the map file on the card was corrupted, I re-formatted the card and reinstalled the map. Same problem. Other than this, the set appeared to be working.
I use iMac and understand some hidden system files are always written on the card so I run the card under Windows and deleted all these hidden files. Didn't help too.
Any clue? Reinstall GPS SW? Must also mention that I did a hard reset of the GPS, also no help.
I think that at some point I had that problem with a microSD that had gone bad for some reason. Can't remember how I fixed it...try cleaning the contacts maybe on both the car and the GPS. Try another microSD card too.
Thanks, gpspassion, cleaning the contacts on both the card and GPS will probably be another thing I can do. I have used another card and same result.
Must also mention that the set was actually working fine until I tried connecting it to Garmin Webupdater and before connection was established, I deleted the POI folder on the card and the set actually hung and then this beeping problem surfaced.
Since I have the SW v4 file, a reinstall may be another option to solve the problem. Had tried hard reset but not useful.
Just to update and close the chapter on this issue - problem solved and it was due to the hidden files created by Mac on the card. I found the following from GPSFAQs.org which confirmed that the 60Csx is somehow affected by these Mac hidden files and caused it to fail. Newer Garmin GPS are not affected by such hidden Mac files:
"This family of products (60Csx) contains a defect in the shutodown code that seems to be intermittently triggerd by mounting the product or its SD card on a Mac or Linux system. The presence of files starting with a dot on the GPS seems to cause it to crash when shutting down."
The problem is solved by deleting these hidden files on the card using a Windows system.
