Question about Garmin GolfLogix GPS-8

Open Question

Golf logix locks up

I may have the same issue described by others. Software update has created an issue with lock ups. Removal of batteries doesn't solve it.

Re attaching the unit to the base software works for awhile, but then it locks up again.

SOURCE: garmin c510 software update

You don't say if you tried resetting the 510 after the update.

To do a reset remove the grey faceplate trim piece.  Along the right side of the screen there is a reset button. Press the reset button then plug the 510 into a power supply. The 510 should automatically power up and reboot.

It's possible that the update was corrupted when it was downloaded, or there is a problem with the processor. If you can't get your GPS to reboot, your PC wont recognise the GPS and you'll probably have to send the unit out for service.

If you have already tried the reset please rate as "thanks for trying"

SOURCE: When GPS is turned on unit locks up

I had losts of lock ups when flipping on the GPS - almost ready to get rid of the Garmin IQUE 3600 since it hasn't worked well for over a year. Sometimes it works a short time with the GPS; other times it was instant lock up when searching for satellites.

I took many steps to isolate the issue, and then added complexity to the equation: update to r6 (no change), hard reset, no user data on IQ3600 during testing, use only internal drive, only use basemap lite on internal drive, only use 1 local city on internal drive, load other maps on external card. Each time I went outside and flipped on the GPS to see if that was affecting the lock up.

Then I played with the GPS settings. The factor that seems to solve the issue: TURN OFF WAAS - it is intended to improve accuracy to 9 ft but it seems to have a bug.

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.

SOURCE: I updated software on unit,

You may wish to perform a master reset and clear all of the problems this way:

To perform a Master Reset on the nuvi 200, 205, 465, 500, 600, 700, 705, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1600, 2200, 2300, or 2400 series device:
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or Favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your Favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so here.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes*
The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts and then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.
*If the text language on your nuvi is not set to English, touch the button on the right.

Make sure that the arrow is pointing to the batteries, and that the cube is ALL the way to the bottom of the socket, with no space between it and the bottom at ALL. I suggest twisting the plug left and right while pushing down with your thumb.

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.
