I was given my late father's Navman F20 when he died in November... i have reset all the details but it keeps telling me that my home address is in a village 4 miles away? it does not recognise my...


I definately wouldn't toss it out yet. Most GPS' are pretty solid and last for years. Sometimes they just need an update...or a jumpstart! Here are a couple of things to try:
1) Try the following reset options. From the menu on the device, go to: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Preferences. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Favourites . Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Recent Addresses. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Factory Reset. This option restores ALL settings to factory defaults.
If that doesn't work, then perform this step: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> GPS Reset.
After you complete the steps above, then take it outside to allow it time to 'find itself' (this may take 3-5 minutes), and see if the position becomes accurate again.
Hope this helps! Cheers!

GPS 38 unable to access date and time in system setup. presently shows 1 jan 05


Hi John921,

Here is the step by step procedure to set date and time of your Garmin GPS 38......
It will definitely work......

Set Local Date and Time


1) Verify the date and local time (this should be
the date and time according to the local date and
time of country/area you are in). Because the
time shows is Universal Time (UTC), you will
need to enter a time offset to display the correct
local time for your area.

2) Move the field highlight to the OFFSET field
and press Enter

3) With the arrows (←→), go to the figure which
represents the hours then with the up & down
arrows (↑↓), select the time offset for your
longitude and press .

4) Move the field highlight to the HOURS field
and change to 24 if that is not already the case.

This will definitely work......
Please rate this solution............

Thanks......

My garmin350 will lose satilite connection


The operating system has nothing to do with this issue. This is a well known problem caused by a failed/intermittent part on the GPS receiver board, located in the flip-up antenna assembly. I've repaired hundreds of these boards. Please see this link for more info:

Wrong date and time


Your GPS receive its date and time from satellites. Take the unit outside and acquire a satellite fix in order to update your time and date. You can set the time zone and time display (12hr, 24hr, UTC) under the unit setting.

Do the following: 1 - Make sure you have fresh batteries in the unit and turn the unit on. 2 - Check the GPS date and Time. On the Main Menu at the bottom of the screen, you can see a date and time. If the date and time are not current, then the clock is your problem. You will have to wait for the almanac information to be updated. Details are below in a later section. 3 - Make sure your GPS is in the Normal Mode and not a demo mode. Verify other systems settings. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. Verify the following settings: GPS: normal WAAS: Enabled Language: English or your choice. Battery: Set according to your battery types. 4 - Check your GPSs Version Software. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. From the System screen, access the sub-menu icon in the upper right bar. Select "Software Version" from the list. Verify the actual software version for me. The latest version available for the eTrex Legend is version 3.90 dated March 2008. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=711 Update the unit using this latest software and using Garmin's Webupdater. http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp If that won't work, use the following download page to access the latest software updates per units. http://www8.garmin.com/support/blosp.jsp 5 - Resetting your GPS clock and almanac information Next you may need to acclimate your unit to a new date and time (almanac information). If you had your unit off and without batteries for over a month since you last accessed satellites, then your clock and almanac information may be incorrect. Even Garmin acknowledges this problem after software updates and the problem with accessing satellites. They state: "unit data including alamanac information may be incorrect or cleared. Back up all user data before upgrading. After installation is complete, place unit with a clear view of the sky for 15-30 minutes to re-acquire almanac data. " I know of no way to reset the clock using the GPS menus. All I can suggest is that you do the following: A - turn the unit on and wait 5 minutes or so for the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen to appear. See page 7 of the owner's manual. B - Set the "new location" to your area using the map when the "poor satellite reception screen" appears. Be sure to use the "map" option and not the "automatic". C - Set the GPS outside with a clear view of the sky. Check on it every 10 minutes. When the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen appears again, then click on "Restart Search". The "Restart Search" option is used when the date provided in the GPS is not today's date. (See page 7 of the Owner's manual for an example) Legend Owners Manual: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf D - Once the GPS can track 4 satellites, then the clock should reset and you should be fine. This process could take up to an hour. I have had this problem with my eTrex Vista and eTrex Legend (both backup GPSs) and resolved it by having the clock reset. In fact, I just tried my eTrex Legend today after not using it for many months and storing it without batteries and it had this same problem. I followed the steps above to fix the problem. This took about 35 minutes.
