Question about Garmin GPS 48 GPS Receiver
Stored my Garmin 48 over the winter with weak rechargeable batteries. Probably, this depleted the memory backup battery, and the unit lost memory. Started my Garmin on fresh batteries, but was unable to initialize either via country or "autolocate" - just could not get any satellites in. (My older Garmin 45 worked in the same place) Checked the date of the Garmin 48 unit - it showed April 10 in mid May. Presumably it uses the Almanach of April now, no wonder it does not find the proper satellites. Is there any way to reset the internal date of the Garmin 48 to the proper value of today? Is there a "hard reset" that can do the job? Thanks for your help! Rolf
I have been successful in repairing three Garmin 48 with low memory battery. Contact me and I'll tell you how I did it.

I have similar problem with Garmin 45 that has been in store and as yet no answers from the experts on this site, just suggestions to try the obvious or do things that are impossible wirth the unit in question. Same date problem in the unit. I think that the only solution will be to send the faulty unit back to the manufacturers via your local agent or store. Let me know how you get on.
