Question about Garmin eTrex GPS Receiver
Is there a global reset option for the etrex
To my knowledge, a reset on a Garmin eTrex would require:
Holding down the PAGE and PAGE UP buttons while simultaneously powering the unit. The Garmin eTrex will enter the service mode/display:
- Bravo Version
- Software Version
- Internal temperature of unit
- Battery voltage
- External voltage
- Button presses
- Other tech info
You can also perform an LCD display/screen check by pressing the PAGE button 2X.
A firendly word of advice: While entering the service mode is interesting and useful, be careful which buttons you press because it is also possible to rest the unit to factory settings within this mode. Pressing "up"+"enter"+"on/off" keys in service mode will reset the eTrex to factory defaults. All presets and data will be lost.
To exit just turn it off as normal, and then turn it back on as normal. Unless you deliberately reset the GPS, nothing should have changed.
Alternately, you can try: Hold down the find, click-stick, and page buttons. Press the power button, and when the title screen appears, release the buttons. This will clear all memory (you will lose all waypoints, etc. back them up first).
Find button: bottom button on the left
Click stick: the button on the face of the unit
Page: the top button on the right
Power: the bottom button on the right
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.
