With the unit turned off, press and hold the follow buttons: PAGE + Enter on the click stick. Then press and release the POWER. The unit will power up asking if you want to release all user data. Select yes, and the unit will be reset. After the master reset, place your unit outside, so that it has a clear view of the sky for 25 to 30 minutes for the unit to acquire new almanac data.

Used my garmin edge 305 today on the ride, it worked fine, powered off after the ride. Got home turned on to review my stats and then powered off and went to upload and wouldn't upload, so tried to turn it...


Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

Vista etrex cx will not acquire satellites . It worked okay the last time I used it.It then says poor reception .Use with GPs off. Its a clear day and was yesteday when i tried to use it. There seems no...


My Etrex Legend would not aquire satellites and after several call to tech support, I finally reset the whole unit. First I saved the waypoints on Mapsource. Then with the unit off press and hold the page button (upper right) then push the rocker button in and then push the power button. Once it starts you can then release all the buttons and set the unit outside for about 20 minutes.

Hi I have turned on/off (not working) I don't have a reset button on the bottom of mine, but the instructions say something about turning the on/off switch and hold for 8 secs. tried that still can't get...


There is a secret botton on the lower right hand side corner of the touch screen. Press and hold down that spot, and slide the switch to on. Continue to hold down the corner until the screen comes up in about5-10 seconds. this will clear the memory and personal info plus do a "hard boot" of the gps. If it works, you will have to re-enter your personal info. If it does not, then the unit will have to be sent to garmin to be rpaired.

My navigon 2110 wont turn on


2 things that might help...use a paperclip and press the reset button (small hole on side, you'll feel a click) hold it for 5 seconds. THEN hold down the power on button for over 10 secs (keep holding while it shows version number) and it will perform a factory reset. You will likely lose any settings and addresses, but better that than no GPS unit.

Garmin Etrex Legend Cx - no signal


Have you tried upgrading the unit's software. Go to Garmin.com and download the latest software for your unit. This will sometimes fix satellite reception problems.

Etrex reset instrucitons


Hi,

If your Garmin eTrex is a Legend and you want to do a "Reset", pls try:
Hard Reset:
With the unit turned off, press and hold the follow buttons: PAGE + Enter on the click stick. Then press and release the POWER. The unit will power up asking if you want to release all user data. Select yes, and the unit will be reset. After the master reset, place your unit outside, so that it has a clear view of the sky for 25 to 30 minutes for the unit to acquire new almanac data.
This was originally posted here and a wealth of other Legend information.

Alternately, this has been posted here at FixYa as well. Pls see this post.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

You dont specify "all the usual" things you have tried. Have you tried taking out the simcard if you have one and then pressing the reset button? Replace the sim and fire up the tom tom. Works for me.
