Re: Date keeps resetting after powerdown

It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems. It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)

I have got a new Navman EZY40 & iam struggling to reset time & date..Any suggestions please??

I own a Navman MY55T and I honestly don't think you have to reset date and time. I never have for mine.

I have had a look online for you for your model of Navman and could not find anything within the user manual except how to change the format display for day/month/yer or month/day/year.

My only thoughts Sync it with your computer and it may pick up your computers time and date like many other peripherals do when they sync to your computer. Or it may well automatically change when it picks up GPS info as you use it in your car.

GPS 38 unable to access date and time in system setup. presently shows 1 jan 05

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............

Garmin Etrex Vista Date problem

Thanks to a hint from a user on another web forum, I have found a fix, at least for now.

Specifically, a normal "master rest" on the eTrex Vista is accomplished by holding down the "Page" button and "Enter" (i.e. the click stick) while powering up. You are prompted that a full reset will occur, and after confirming, the machine is reset. However, in my case, this achieved a full reset, but did not fix the date problem.

However, the undocumented "super master reset" on the eTrex Vista is achieved by simultaneously holding down the "Page, "Enter" and "Find" buttons while powering up. You have to hold all buttons in for about 5 to 7 seconds, and you DON'T get the warning message, but when the machine finally restarts, it is fully reset. After acquiring a satellite fix (took several minutes) - lo and behold - my time AND date both seem to be correct!

Oddly, neither Garmin tech support nor the local reseller seemed to know about this method of REALLY resetting the machine - I will pass on the information to them, for future reference.

The link which documents the "super master reset" procedure is here:

Hope this might also help other eTrex Vista owners who are experiencing the same date problem.

Pc date keeps resetting to 01/01/2001

I can only presume thsi is an older handhels.
There is a small CMOS battery that has run out.
It may be a Dell only fix.
On a PC it is on the M/board.
Small flat battery like in a watch.
Take it out and get a new one from local watch shop or Jewellers or PC shop.
