Question about Garmin eTrex Vista GPS Receiver

1 Answer

GPS will not display full screen.

The display will only show up on the lower 1/3 of the LCD.  I can not read the information to use it.  Most all of what is suppose to be in the full screen is compressed down, but I can't read the menus, or much of anything.

This problem is caused by a defective LCD display. It is a common problem too. The only way to repair it is to replace the LCD display.

I am glad to HELP YOU!

Definitely after the impact your device became LESS SENSITIVE on the lower left side.
So as a replacement you will need
FIRST - the digitizer
SECOND - the display [but ONLY if the older display has cracks or other damages].

GOOD LUCK!

Image on 'normal' setting isn't using full height of tv screen.


What you will need to do is grab your remote that came with the tv - click "Menu">select "Settings">go down to "Screen" and make sure that:

1. Wide Mode reads "Full"
2. Auto Wide reads "On"
3. Display Area reads "Full Pixel"

Hope that helps.

I cannot clear a 'to a location' screen


I too was frustrated with this one. I played with the watch until I found the solution... Hope this helps!

For some reason I needed to be in the training mode to do this.

From the Time/Date mode, do the following:
1.) Press the start/stop button (upper metal button) to get out of Time/Date mode
2.) Press the Training side of the bezzle. You will see a workout display.
3.) Touch the GPS side of the bezzle until "to location" shows up
4.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to display a menu (may have to do this a couple of times, eventually when you release the button the menu does show up)
5.) Slide downward through the menu options until you find GPS
6.) Click the start/stop button (upper metal button) to toggle the gps on or off
7.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to exit the menu (goes to the "to a location" screen)
8.) Press and hold the Training side of the bezzle to return to your training screen
