Question about Garmin Golf Logix GPS

1 Answer

2008 GolfLogix suddenly gives very bad measurements

Unit worked fine for about 6 months. now it locks up on occasion and now when I reach the 13th hole of one of our courses it gives hugely wrong measurements. When I'm say 150 out it reads 467 yards out. And will go up not down as I move towards the hole. I have to go to the next hole, take out the batteries, wait a while and put them back in and turn it on again. Even then sometimes it goes right back to where it was. Very frustrating during a tournament. HELP!!

    I've had the same problem....twice. I had to reload the courses from my PC and that seemed to reset the software. Still very frustrating while playing.

    My unit acted up the first day I used went beserk after five holes giving ridiculous yardages. I did a download from the GolfLogix webite ( had to that with my husband's unit in Jan.) and tried it again today. Again, five hole so functioning then duplicated yesterday's antics. Have e-mailed Garmin for assistance.

Restore unit bookmark

Go to the help button in the upper right hand corner of your course manager. There will be a bunch of questions that appear down

the right hand side. The bottom one should say How do I restore my golfgps. Press that, and press the button that comes up that

says restore. With the gps plugged in and turned on, it will quickly move to say that your gps has been restored. Press Ok, and

turn the gps off , count to five, and turn it back on. Reload your courses, and you should be good to go!

My gps8 garwin golf gps just stopped working no power its not batteries and ideas wont power up at all

Open the unit up and remove the mother board. Place the board on a cookie sheet propped/supported by a small wad of paper at each corner. Do not let the board touch the cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 170 degrees and bake the board for 10 minutes.
I did the same for the board in my Cuisinart coffee maker. Read it on a fix it site for Cuisinart when my coffee maker would not come on. Both my coffee maker and GOLFLOGIX GPS8 are working fine.

Why does golflogix say out of range on my iphone when my other golf gps works fine?

Try turning off the 3g. a lot of gps programs use the wireless gps, which just isnt as accurate, but the satellite gps gets interfered with by the 3g on the phone. Also, go to location services under settings on the phone, and make sure its turned ON for golflogix.

How do I reste my golflogix

I had that a ways back. Go into your course manager, and click help, one of the options says restore. After you do that, reload your courses, and , get this, you have to leave the gps outside for 8 hours! Old gps, it has to manually build maps of satttelites. I did that once, and it fixed it, it happened again 6 months later, and it didn't fix it. They told me that it was dead, and had me mail it in to get a new gps8 for cheap.

GolfLogix GPS Receiver: I have a golflogix 8 and I can not get beyond the ...

The cable can be a pain. It has to be slid all the way down to the very bottom of the socket on the gps, even when its tight, it might not be connected all the way. I usually wiggle it left and right while pushing it down.

The GolfLogix 7 had a problem that if you did a reset to factory defaults it wiped out the Almanac in the GPS. This is the Table of where the satelites are. Put in a fresh set of battery's....turn it on and put it out in the open sky for 4 to 8 hours. Sometimes this will work. If not contact Golflogix Tech Support. They ill probable ship you a replacement unit.
