Best idea i have for that is to try the web updater again and see if it will finish. Otherwise the only suggestion i have is to remove the batteries let it sit for about 10 minutes and then put the batteries back in, BUT AGAIN BUT this may cause problems with the unit since it is looking for an ini file and if the updater didn't do it's job it won't find it and may cause the unit to lock up entirely, resulting in a trip back to the factory for repairs. Hope this helps

Webupdater crashed my etrex!!! I did everything they said and it crashed. I need this fixed for my trip up north please help!!!


never use the garmin webupdater, it is unreliable. download the previous version 3.10 firmware from http://www.tramsoft.ch/gps/garmin_etrex-venture-hc-firmware-upgrades_en.html, extract to c:\garmin, plug in your gps via usb, hold the front button in the down position until update process completes, run the updater.exe program and let it complete. You will see an error message at the end of the update process, ignore and let the garmin reboot and it should work again after that.

Garmin Etrex Venture HC will not power up/stay on.


Hi,

You are not alone it appears. Follow the link below.

Try here.http://www.fixya.com/support/t2084694-gps_stay I had the same problem as you and I followed the advise to do a "bootlock" to download new software via Garmins WebUpdater. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=931
But please note if the unit switches off during update it may cause problems.

Or you could just return to Garmin for a replacement.

Barmin ETrex Hc won't turn on


Hi,

I had the same problem as you with the unit switching off.
I found this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t2084694-gps_stay
I held down the joystick button to perform a "Bootlock"
I don't know if it will work for you.

I got Garmins WebUpdater here http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=931

My etrex legend develops a verticle black line during use and then shuts off. removing and replacing the batteries gets the gps restarted but then the problem repeats


Mine also was doing this while geocaching. I downloaded and installed the newest firmware(v3.90) using the WebUpdater from the Garmin site and it fixed the issue for me.

My GPS won't stay on


I can solve this by not solving it. First I tried reset the unit to default settings: hold down the power, page, and enter buttons at the same time, a message, "do you really wan to reset..." will appear. Select "yes." If the unit reboots, hurrah. If not, call tech support (1.800.800.1020). Get an RMA, send it back to them for repair. I had purchased mine over 30 days ago but less than 60: Amazon wouldn't replace it, Garmin will either replace or repair. If you want them to send a new unit while the old is in transit, just ask; they will charge and then credit a card once they have the old unit is in hand. Good luck.

How to update softwrae


The simplest thing to do is as follows: Go to the following website-

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Follow the instructions from there which state:

WebUpdater is a free application that lets you update your unit software from home. Download it once at the link below, and you can check for and install software updates without using your Internet web browser. Simply run WebUpdater from your computer, and it will do all of the work for you.
Step 1: Download and Install WebUpdater Click the link above to download WebUpdater. Next follow the screen prompts to install the application on your pc. If you have already installed WebUpdater on your computer, skip to step 2.
WebUpdater updates most Garmin products, excluding Palm and Pocket PC devices, fixed-mount marine units, chartplotters, fishfinders and certain discontinued units we no longer support. It does not perform Beta updates. WebUpdater only updates unit software. See our All Updates & Downloads web page for related utilities, drivers, add-ons and the unit software for the excluded units mentioned above.


Step 2: Connect GPS to PC and Run WebUpdater After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater".

Hope this helps.

Garmin etrex legend


I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.
