Hi John921,

Here is the step by step procedure to set date and time of your Garmin GPS 38......
It will definitely work......

Set Local Date and Time


1) Verify the date and local time (this should be
the date and time according to the local date and
time of country/area you are in). Because the
time shows is Universal Time (UTC), you will
need to enter a time offset to display the correct
local time for your area.

2) Move the field highlight to the OFFSET field
and press Enter

3) With the arrows (←→), go to the figure which
represents the hours then with the up & down
arrows (↑↓), select the time offset for your
longitude and press .

4) Move the field highlight to the HOURS field
and change to 24 if that is not already the case.

This will definitely work......
Please rate this solution............

Thanks......

This device gets the date from the satellite, all you can change is the "offset" as described in the manual.

You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

GPS 38

Go through the procedure in the manual on page 6 to acquire the satellites and the date will set itself.

Please take a moment to rate this solution & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

As I type this at 8:11 AM on Jan 13, my 2620 says it's 5:45 AM on Jan 27, about 2 weeks in the future. How can this be reset?


Probably not. Time to read the manual to learn how to set the time. You may let it synchronize with the GPS signals, or set the Time manually.

I am having trouble getting location. Even when I get good satelite coverage (many showing on the screen) No location shows. It also seems to be slow in acquiring upon power up. How do a restore the units...


Hi!

i checked out the Garmin owner's manual for your GPS:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexVista_OwnersManual.pdf

On page 6 it explains that from the satellite page there are four options from which you can choose;

1) Use with GPS off
2) New location
3) Restart search
4) Continue acquiring

If the date displayed on your unit is NOT today's date, select "Restart Search"

Since the GPS does NOT lose memory when the batteries are removed, the problem is unlikely to be that the GPS doesn't know where it was used last.

If the displayed time for your area is not correct, use the main menu to access the setup pages and follow the instructions for setting the time found on page 49. This SHOULD get you on your way.

Good luck!

Unable to get yahoo mail.


Re the "error code sec_error_expired_certificate" that I got when trying to access Yahoo mail from Mozilla--turns out the date and time on my computer had reverted back to Jan.2001. Discovered it by accident when setting the time on my watch to the computer this afternoon and computer time showed AM instead of PM. After resetting time and date, no problem getting Yahoo mail. I figure the battery probably needs changing.

Date & time.


To reset system time you must be at the attendant station and with the handset cradled:
Dial: #06 4321 1 # (4321 is the default password)
Then:#55 YY, MM, DD, W, HH, MM, # time will be saved and phone will go back to normal operation.

Naming convention:
YY - Last two digits of the year
MM - Month (1-12)
DD - Day of month (1-31)
W - Day of Week (monday = 1.... sunday = 7)
HH - Hour (24hr format)
MM - Minutes (00-59)

ex: To set the time For Monday, Jan. 5, 2009 at 8:31pm I would enter: 09 01 05 1 20 31 #

Good Luck,

Do the following: 1 - Make sure you have fresh batteries in the unit and turn the unit on. 2 - Check the GPS date and Time. On the Main Menu at the bottom of the screen, you can see a date and time. If the date and time are not current, then the clock is your problem. You will have to wait for the almanac information to be updated. Details are below in a later section. 3 - Make sure your GPS is in the Normal Mode and not a demo mode. Verify other systems settings. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. Verify the following settings: GPS: normal WAAS: Enabled Language: English or your choice. Battery: Set according to your battery types. 4 - Check your GPSs Version Software. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. From the System screen, access the sub-menu icon in the upper right bar. Select "Software Version" from the list. Verify the actual software version for me. The latest version available for the eTrex Legend is version 3.90 dated March 2008. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=711 Update the unit using this latest software and using Garmin's Webupdater. http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp If that won't work, use the following download page to access the latest software updates per units. http://www8.garmin.com/support/blosp.jsp 5 - Resetting your GPS clock and almanac information Next you may need to acclimate your unit to a new date and time (almanac information). If you had your unit off and without batteries for over a month since you last accessed satellites, then your clock and almanac information may be incorrect. Even Garmin acknowledges this problem after software updates and the problem with accessing satellites. They state: "unit data including alamanac information may be incorrect or cleared. Back up all user data before upgrading. After installation is complete, place unit with a clear view of the sky for 15-30 minutes to re-acquire almanac data. " I know of no way to reset the clock using the GPS menus. All I can suggest is that you do the following: A - turn the unit on and wait 5 minutes or so for the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen to appear. See page 7 of the owner's manual. B - Set the "new location" to your area using the map when the "poor satellite reception screen" appears. Be sure to use the "map" option and not the "automatic". C - Set the GPS outside with a clear view of the sky. Check on it every 10 minutes. When the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen appears again, then click on "Restart Search". The "Restart Search" option is used when the date provided in the GPS is not today's date. (See page 7 of the Owner's manual for an example) Legend Owners Manual: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf D - Once the GPS can track 4 satellites, then the clock should reset and you should be fine. This process could take up to an hour. I have had this problem with my eTrex Vista and eTrex Legend (both backup GPSs) and resolved it by having the clock reset. In fact, I just tried my eTrex Legend today after not using it for many months and storing it without batteries and it had this same problem. I followed the steps above to fix the problem. This took about 35 minutes.
