With the unit off, pull the batteries out. Hold the power button in for about 10-12 seconds. Put the batteries back in and try again to power up like normal.

Vista etrex cx will not acquire satellites . It worked okay the last time I used it.It then says poor reception .Use with GPs off. Its a clear day and was yesteday when i tried to use it. There seems no...


My Etrex Legend would not aquire satellites and after several call to tech support, I finally reset the whole unit. First I saved the waypoints on Mapsource. Then with the unit off press and hold the page button (upper right) then push the rocker button in and then push the power button. Once it starts you can then release all the buttons and set the unit outside for about 20 minutes.

Garmin eTrex Vista Cx won't turn on


Call Garmin customer service, they are wonderful. My rubber thing around the outside became loose,and they sent me a new unit, even though it was almost 2 years old.

Garmin Etrex Venture doesn't aquire satellites


I have an eTrex and you can reset the defaults which may help. I don't see any 'reset' operation in the manual other than Restore Defaults.

After switching on and letting the unit go through its initalisation press the button on the front (next to the etrex name) until you get to the main menu. Select Setup and press. Select System and press. Move the button to the left and press. Press the button again to restore defaults.

I geocache with a friend. I am 40 ft. off east to west. Hers is always right on. Garmin Venture Etrex CX Help !


Depends on the number of satellites each GPS is viewing at the time so if you are holding the device your body will be shielding a number of satellites from the device and this may be different depending which direction you are looking in. The other thing is that 10m/40ft is about the best accuracy you can get from a standard GPS. If you want better accuracy you need a surveying GPS with a Differential GPS receiver

Unlocking a Garmin etrex venture cx


The unit comes with a base map. You will need to purchase City Navigator software if you want more detailed maps which will show all roads. If the box contained a copy of the City Navigator and you threw away the code, you'll have to purchase another unlock code from Garmin.

GPS screen went blank


My problem exactly. Unit would start up, acquire satellites, then the screen would go blank with a single vertical line. Unit would not respond to buttons or even turn off. Unit works fine after I did the reset:

- w/unit OFF, press and hold QUIT+DOWN+MENU
- press and release the power button, release DOWN, keep holding QUIT+MENU for 5 seconds.
- unit prompts something like: "erase all data;" choose yes.
- you will lose waypoints, etc.

Go to the Garmin support area for details.
