SOURCE: My Garmin e-trex will not

It righted itself when I switched it on again outside and 'calibrated' it by moving around with it in my hand. Obviously it is better not to leave the batteries out for so long, overnight, while recharging them.
Once before I had to get back to the factory settings and start again by pressing buttons consecutively quickly but I couldn't do that again. I had forgotten what I did and hadn't written it down. Any ideas?!
Cheers

How do you set time/date?


Hi, do you have the MiniTuner module in the radio? You need that in, and the antenna connected facing the SW horizon. Turn on to SATellite. Adjust antenna so that you can hear Channel 1 clearly. After you hear channel 1, the satellite will send a time signal. Then go to MENU, select Adjust time and pick your time zone and if you are on Daylight Savings time. Then, menu to exit out. Your satellite signal will keep the time updated when in Satellite mode.
I don't know if that will also set the regular clock too, or just only the time while in satellite mode. Let me know how you do with it.

My date and time is wrong on my gpsmap 60csx. how can i adjust it? I just did an update


The 60CS does not have a way to set the date and time manually- it finds both from the satellites as soon as it receives them.

The time zone can be set in:
- Main menu
- Marine setup
- Time Setup then TimeZone

Garmin GPSMAP 172C - cannot find satellites (WAAS)?


WAAS is a seperate service from GPS. It provides GPS corrections so if you can not get WAAS there is no big problems. you unit just wont be as accurate as normal. WAAS only is for North America and EGNOS for Europe. You may want to turn WAAS off for now. I suggest trying a update for the unit. You will need a memory card and Garmin USB programmer. Then just go to garmins site to get the latest update. If you need a USB programmer feel free to Contact GPSCity.ca or GPSCity.com. They are the leading experts in Garmin GPS.

The date that my Nuvi operates on is incorrect


Nuvi 200 - trying to reset the date using the method suggested by Kevin A (and in a cellar) and after two hours the Nuvi was still "locating satellites". Am I doing something wrong?!

My main problem, however, is that having loaded a copy of the latest European maps onto the card used in the device, when going through the "where to" routine I am asked to enter State/Province. Living in the UK this is a little difficult as there is no answer I can give that the unit will recognise! Any ideas?

I am looking for a driver for a SHARP "LL-172C-B"


There really isn't any "Drivers" as such for the monitor, Windows should pick it up, as the Monitor "Talks" to the PC and "Tells" it what it "Is". You simply need to connect it up, reboot and use it.

Wrong date and time


Your GPS receive its date and time from satellites. Take the unit outside and acquire a satellite fix in order to update your time and date. You can set the time zone and time display (12hr, 24hr, UTC) under the unit setting.
