How do I calibrate my compass in the eTrex Venture HC. The book says to go to the tje menue and then press calibration. My GPS does not give me this option.

I will be happy to help you with this. Unfortunnately, the Etrex Venture does not have an Electronic Compass, therefore you cannot calibrate it. What this means is that this unit will show the correct direction of travel as long as you are moving. The unit takes satellite reading every 1 seconds and compares it's location with the last location. This way it can read the direction of travel. It will not give correct readings unless you are moving.
I hope this helps.

My eTREX VISTA won't get a satelite fix any more

The unit needs to have the screen facing up. The unit will not read if it is vertical. Garmin cust serv finally helped me with that one. Once you turn on the unit, it could take up to 20 minutes (usually about 3) to grab satelites.

Unlocking a Garmin etrex venture cx

The unit comes with a base map. You will need to purchase City Navigator software if you want more detailed maps which will show all roads. If the box contained a copy of the City Navigator and you threw away the code, you'll have to purchase another unlock code from Garmin.

What do you need to know? Do you have the manual for your unit? If not, you can download one from the Garmin site for free. It shows all the options for your unit, and how to use them. There are no specific options for New Zealand.

Grid bearing

If you press in the control stick, it will make a waypoint at your location and you can see the co-ordinates. The numbers can be displayed in various ways, all depends the settings you have used in the Etrex.
Your bearing will be on your Navigation Page.
