Question about Garmin eTrex Vista HCx Handheld GPS Receiver
It would seem to me that I should not have to set the backlight level every time I turn on the unit.
Under Setup...Display, I have set the ''Backlight Timeout'' to 1 minute, and have tried to set the ''Backlight Level'' to 15%. It seems that every time I turn on the unit, the backlight is at 0%.
If I go back to the Display setup screen, the ''Backlight Level'' has reset to 0%.
I am using software version 2.80.
Any explaination or assistance would be appreciated.
I called Garmin. This is "As Designed", so we are stuck with this. Annoying, but all you have to do after turning the unit on is:
1) Press Lower Right button twice
2) Press Upper Right button once
Unit will now behave as you directed until you turn it off
