My etrex vista cx will not turn on- new batteries installed


as its new, it would be unwise to fiddle around with it. Return it for exchange,
Before you do though make sure that the batteries are good and have been inserted in the correct polarity.

Etrex Vista is a very robust unit and most reliable generally, so this is unusual.

Please rate my help++++Thanks fo using FIXYA

My 3 year old Garmin Etrex Vista just started displaying horizontal lines across the entire display. Any suggestions?


Try updating the unit's software via the Garmin.com website. This may fix it as there was a satellite launched which was causing problems with some Garmin units.

Garmin etrex vista Cx won't lock onto a position. Reads multiple satilites bit won't genrate a position.


Have you tried fresh batteries? Weak batteries, I've noticed, can cause this problem. Also, try to acquire your signal in a clear area (no trees or power-lines nearby)

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 Vista Shutting down and freezing up


People! The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

I had the same problem with an etrex Vista. I spoke with Garmin, they said that a recently launched WAAS satellite is interferring with some models (he mentioned it is the models with a black and white screen). Garmin tech support said that they're working on a software patch but for the meantime switch WAAS off.

Call Garmin tech support with any questions or to find out about the software patch, 1-800-800-1020
