Question about Garmin eTrex Venture GPS Receiver
My GPS doesn't find any satellites when I haven't used it for a long period. I have inserted new batteries and left it turned on for 10 mins or more with no luck. Last time used it I had the same problem and a man in a climbing shop reset it for me and it worked fine after that. But I now have the same problem and I dont know what he did to reset it.
On the same page where it says that you cannot aquire sattelites, click on the line that says, GPS has been stored without batteries, then it should fix the problem, i guess it doesnt like been stored without batteries

I have an eTrex and you can reset the defaults which may help. I don't see any 'reset' operation in the manual other than Restore Defaults.
After switching on and letting the unit go through its initalisation press the button on the front (next to the etrex name) until you get to the main menu. Select Setup and press. Select System and press. Move the button to the left and press. Press the button again to restore defaults.
