My Garmin Etrex Summit records tracklogs and shows them on the screen but when I upload them to my PC all tracks show as 0 miles, 0 altitude etc


2 possible reasons.
Either memory is full.
Try remove all data from history, and have a small run.
It should be OK then on PC upload.

If not OK, only hard reset can cleanup device, and return to factory settings.
Consult your manual for hard reset instructions.

Garmin etrex gps


Hi,

Most reset would revert the unit back to factory default and therefore may and could erase all user stored settings and configurations.

Having been forewarned, Pressing "up"+"enter" keys while powering up the eTrex will reset the eTrex to factory defaults. So, all pressets and data will be lost.

Additionally, you may be able to do bypass and other tricks using the "Secret Startup Commands for Garmin handhelds".

Tight lines and hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I cant unlock maps in my garmin nuvi360


You will need to input the security code for the maps. If you purchased them through Garmin or a Garmin dealer, contact Garmin and they will give you the security code.

Garmin eTrex Summit Screen


see discussion at http://californication.mtbguru.com/2005/11/20/deconstructing-the-garmin-etrex-vista/ Its possible that there's a bad connection at the ribbon cable, but most likely its a bad connection at the edge of the LCD glass panel. I've had two eTrex fail because of this problem. Don't pay the riduculous price Garmin asks for repair - just buy a new Magellan unit. If you must get a Garmin, go with the high-sensitivity receiver.
