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

Garmin etrex ledgend c: When track log is turned on, "breadcrumbs" mark the path I've traveled. I don't save the track but the breadcrumbs remain on the unit's map....forever.


Hello

Check both your track and map settings. Make sure that "show track on map" is not selected in your map settings, and in your track settings try erasing all previous tracks.

Hope this helps!

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 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)

My eTREX VISTA won't get a satelite fix any more


The unit needs to have the screen facing up. The unit will not read if it is vertical. Garmin cust serv finally helped me with that one. Once you turn on the unit, it could take up to 20 minutes (usually about 3) to grab satelites.

Hi, the DOT (Direction Of Travel) arrow will only appear on the Compass page when you are navigating.
  1. Go to the 'Main Menu'
  2. Select 'Find'
  3. Select 'Waypoints'
  4. Select a waypoint
  5. Select the 'Go TO' button
Once you are on the Compass page you should have the DOT arrow as long as you have a sat lock.

Will not turn on


I contacted Garmin and they had me remove the microchip inside and see if that would fix the problem. It did not. So they instructed me to send it back in for repair. They gave me a return number and then ended up replacing the unit with a new one. My unit was under a year old so it was no charge.

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.

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
