It is used in summertime in a boat. It worked well several years but this year it won't find the satellites. It also shows wrong date and time. What can I do?

SOURCE: Display won't come up anymore
The power switch usually allows you to adjust the backlight with a short tap there should be a scroll bar, use the four way toggle up to increase the back light.

SOURCE: My Garmin e-trex will not
It righted itself when I switched it on again outside and 'calibrated' it by moving around with it in my hand. Obviously it is better not to leave the batteries out for so long, overnight, while recharging them.
Once before I had to get back to the factory settings and start again by pressing buttons consecutively quickly but I couldn't do that again. I had forgotten what I did and hadn't written it down. Any ideas?!

you need to go outside in an open area with no trees around and turn the garmin on untill it receives a sat connection it can take several minutes for it to find it
