Replacement glass for Garmin etrex vista c


I'm halfway down replacing my cracked glass. With a sharp fine knife with rounded tip it was easy to lift slowly and gently the original glass from its seat. Working from the outside only. Not opening at all the GPS unit. Then removed the remainders of the adhesive tape. The cell phone shop around the corner had plenty replacement glasses. He gave me a Samsung which had proper width already and was slightly to tall. With a file a trimmed it to almost exact shape. I intend to place using aquarium silicone glue. Should do it.
Best of luck, Johannes

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

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.

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.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX


The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.
If this solves your situation, please come back and rate our answer. Thankyou.

Rubber band around case got loose, then broken


I had the same problem with my Vista 1 year ago. I tried the contact cement and worked fine for a couple of weeks. I tried another brand of contact cement and had the same problem (the adhesive unsticks from the rubber band). I finally solve the problem cleaning everything (be sure to remove ALL of the adhesive from both gps and rubber band to ensure a good contact between them) and putting some drops of Locktite instant glue on the water protective layer side, and then carefully place the rubber band on its place (don't forget that you have only a few seconds to work with instant glue) . Just be carefull and don't apply adhesive very close to the buttons. It worked for me for more than 11 months....and still working...

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
