Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver
I was in the outdoors on a clear night and my gps couldn't find satellites it was on for 3 hours. I changed from normal to WAAS and back with no change. I turned it on and off again still no satellites. Of course no compass or other functions. I could scroll between functions. Is it kaput?
Hey! I am writing here becos I am looking for a spesific time back in 27/2-1984 in Norway. Someting increddible happened a alien craft landed 15 meters from me, anyhow the point is that i want to know the exact time for this and a littlebit before i saw a satelitte moving up there the time was past 20:00 night time Norwegian time and I wnat to find out where to go for find out what time the satelitte i saw did "fly" by. Is there any ways to find out this time exactly? Please email me the info to [email protected] thanks

Sounds like demo mode or the receiver is off. if all else fails do a system upload and that resets everything to factory defaults

Sure wish I knew as I have the exact same problem. One day it worked, then next, nothing.

Go to the Garmin.com web site and search under FAQ's. The "reset" method is described, and it works. Went to Spain and had to reset to pick up the satellites there. Usually, it is best to search the manufacturer's web sites for answers before trying to find the answers in these self-help sites.

After spending several hours digging with no help from garmin's own support site i finally found one bit on info worth sharing that may help all of you...it is the reason MY garmin has an awful time finding satellites in my car....There's a thing some cars come equipped with called an "athermic windshield" which has a thin coating of metal in it. It's designed to keep out a higher percentage of UV rays, but also does a pretty good job of keeping satellite signals out as well....obviously if your GPS works outside your car and not in it this may help, but if your GPS doesn't find a sat even outside your car this knowledge is not that useful. Now i just have to find out what to do about it...maybe i'll mount my GPS on the outside hood ;)
