SOURCE: I have a Garmin Etrex.

Hi there,
Please try going to the pointer page.
After that go to the pointer page options and choose to reset Trip. That should reset the odometer back to zero. If that doesn't work and there's not much data to loose try resetting other thing on the pointer page and that's where it should it be.
Hope this helps!

Failed to log ride course (travelled) rode 43km, only shows 100metres

Where were the 100 metres? At the beginning or end of the ride. Take it on another run, you might of just bumped it or it could have been a fluke. If it doesn't work after that try reupdating it. Could be it lost connection with the satelite in your area and missed the recording.

My Garmin Nuvi 255w tells me that my milage is between 500-700 m[g? Why? I have my vehicle profile set at 14 mpg city, 18 hiway. Fuel cost $2.60

the garmin will not calculate mpg. The trip computer does show, speed, average speed, distance travelled, trip time, etc.

Garmin/honda nuvi 760

The unit receives signals from 3 (or more) satellites, and uses very sensitive timing to determine your distance from each of them. The unit does not transmit to the satellites, but only receives what they transmit... so it is a "receiver, only".

See here for the details of how a GPS works:

Hope that helps you...

Trig and distance


this is solved by starting with the SECOND leg of the flight considered as a triangle.

Find how far DUE east the plane travels (100 km x Cos10 = 83.9 km) using 10 degrees because that is how much is left of the 90 degree quadrent after subtracting the 80 degrres course direction.
Similarly find out how far DUE north the plane travels (100 km x Cos80 = 11 km).

Now get the total flight NORTH = 300 + 11 = 311
- and total EAST = 83.9

Finally, use Pythagoras get the total DISTANCE:
square root of ( 311 squared + 83 squared ) = 321 km

Also the DIRECTION from its Tangent of 83 /311 = 14.9 degrees

Garmin 305

When the memory in the watch is full detail (ie mapping points) of the earliest runs are deleted but the aggregate data (eg total distance/time etc) is retained. If you want to save the mapping points you need to download it to a PC fairly soon after doing the run (depending of course on how much you use the 305). Although you can use the Training Centre software supplied with the 305 I prefer sporttracks which is a third party donate-ware application which many users find to be much better than TC.

My Garmin 305 wont record calories when I'm in the Gym. I select the "Other" sport mode, the little guy skiing, and It doesn't recored or even register calories? It records during my Jog sessions while...

The 305 uses distance to calculate calories. They sell a "foot pod" that you can use indoors, and that will count your calories by calculating the distance you have traveled. The problem however, is that using distance to calculate calories is so inaccurate! The calorie count that the 305 provides is almost always WAY too high. Other heart rate monitors use heart rate to calculate calories burned, and it is a much more accurate measure. My garmin thinks i burned 700 calories an hour today while i was snowboarding, and, while that would be nice, there is NO way it's true!!
