Hi,

Most reset would revert the unit back to factory default and therefore may and could erase all user stored settings and configurations.

Having been forewarned, Pressing "up"+"enter" keys while powering up the eTrex will reset the eTrex to factory defaults. So, all pressets and data will be lost.

Additionally, you may be able to do bypass and other tricks using the "Secret Startup Commands for Garmin handhelds".

Tight lines and 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.

My garmin GPS 12 will not pick up and lock on the satilites


Go to the Garmin website and download up to date software for your unit. A new satellite launched in '08 caused some problems, and the update fixes this.
Please come back and let us know if this fixes it.

GPS won't pick up satellite reception.


Let's assume the unit is in good conditions. When you travel for more than 500 Kms the unit need more time to acquire the satellites, so the solution is to keep the unit on in a uncovered area for about 15 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)

Screen goes blank after locating sattilites.


Accordingto Garmin, this problem can be fixed by disabling the WAAS feature in teh set up menu. There is an incompatibility between the old Garmin software and latest WAAS upgrades. Later software from Garmin is supposed to fix this problem.

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.
