If you downloaded the new software on a mac it doesn't work. You call the company and will receive a new device, then send the bad one back. They take care of shipping.

The Vista HCx has an electronic compass. You don't need to be moving for it to work, but you do need to calibrate it. To calibrate the compass:

  1. Go to the Main Menu
  2. Select Setup
  3. Select Calibration
  4. You will be asked "Which Sensor Would You Like To Calibrate", select Compass
  5. You will see a page that says "To Calibrate Compass: Slowly Turn Two Full Circles In The Same Direction While Holding The Unit Level", select Enter and do this.
You need to hold the unit level for the Magnetic Compass to work correctly. The specs for a properly calibrated compass are +/- 5°

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

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.

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.

Make sure to wait until you press okay on your computer when loading courses before you unplug the unit. I was jumping the gun, unplugging it right when it turned off, and causing that issue myself with mine.

MY GOLF LOGIX HAS WORKED FOR OVER 2 YEARS . NOW IT WILL NOT AQUIRE SATELLITES. OTHER GOLF LOGIX IN MY **** WORK FINE


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.
