How do I calibrate my compass in the eTrex Venture HC. The book says to go to the tje menue and then press calibration. My GPS does not give me this option.


I will be happy to help you with this. Unfortunnately, the Etrex Venture does not have an Electronic Compass, therefore you cannot calibrate it. What this means is that this unit will show the correct direction of travel as long as you are moving. The unit takes satellite reading every 1 seconds and compares it's location with the last location. This way it can read the direction of travel. It will not give correct readings unless you are moving.
I hope this helps.

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.

Screen appears to freeze up


Try updating the unit software. A new satellite was launched this year and has been causing problems. The updates from Garmin fix it. Disable the WAAS in the meantime and see if that solves the problem in the meantime.

ETrex Legend display


Due to a new satellite launched this year, the WAAS is affected. Disable the WAAS, go to Garmin and download the latest software version FOR THIS UNIT. Install, enable WAAS and you should be good to go.
Let us know if this solved your problem. Thanks.

Locating satellites


Hi cassyd

I have 2 questions in order to help.

1) It can take longer than 30 seconds depending on where you are, how long have you waited for it to acquire?

2) Are you holding the unit verticle while you wait for it to acquire?

If you know your lat/lon you can type that into the position screen while you are waiting for it to acquire, sometimes that helps.

If it is posible to, which it should be, go to menu, then setup, then units. Use the position frmt field, your best bet. Hope this helps!
