I'm not sure I understand the question. When you take the unit outside and turn it on, does it show you in Tampa, or Decatur? If it still shows you in Tampa check the satellite status in the tools menu, you may not be acquiring your current location.

If you're talking about the home location that is saved into your GPS as a waypoint, go into your favorite places list and delete the place named "home" then go to the location you want to save as your new home and press "where to" and then "home". Since there is no home saved, the GPS will ask if you want to save your current location as home. That should do it for you.

Etrex vista will not display any map


I had the same problem for months. i don't know what part of this worked or if it was a fluke that it finally worked. I downloaded the newer firmware for the garmin and installed it ( http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/ ) then tried adding maps, that didn't work, then tried 3-4 times resetting the garmin, and each time tried adding maps and it didn't work - turns out I wasn't really resetting it (I think) it appeared that the successful reset was holding down the clicker key and the pages key while starting up, and keeping them held down for a long time (15 seconds?) - there was no sign that it was resetting except a faint illumination, then when I let go of those 2 keys it went through the setup sequence. the only way I knew it had finally reset was when the page came my pointer was in the middle of the united states. I had repeatedly tried resetting before and the pointer/map page came up to where I was last at, so it hadn't really been resetting. I'm very displeased that it took 5-10 tries to get this to work and this happened on 2 units.

I reloaded the maps after it had properly reset and they actually display and are on the map list!
this is the second etrex unit ive had this problem with, and the first one was just as flaky - taking many reset events (see master and super master reset on other etrex threads at this site)

Update propblem....


I just got this from the Garmin support guys. You won't believe how easy. From the main menu, click on the wrench, then map info. That should tell you what version of the map your Garmin is using. There's a little box in the upper left corner. If it's not checked, just touch it and the check should appear. Hold down the back button till you are at the main screen. Voi la! He also recommended sitting the Garmin outside and turned on and then not moving it for about 40 minutes. I hope it's that easy for you!

Locating satelites


Are you outside, exposed to the GPS signals?

If so, have you tried resetting the unit?

Remove the face cover (GENTLY pry it loose by using the fingernail groove directly under the GARMIN logo), press the RESET button, then re-attach front cover... this is covered in the owners manual, also available online at garmin.com /support /downloads

Change Home Location on Nuvi 660


 

Go into 'Where To', 'Favorites', 'HOME', 'Edit...', 'Delete'. Then from the main map screen you can tap the screen and 'Save' the location as your new home. You can't save a 'Home' location if there's already one called that in memory, so you have to delete the old one first.

 

(I have a 680, but I assume it's the same)
