Didjerrydo Posted February 1, 2008 Share Posted February 1, 2008 I am just wondering how many Colorado's out there have this issue. I personally have seen 3 here at the store (we got 3 in). I'd just like to get a survey of how extensive this problem is. What happens, for those that haven't followed this thread, is, when the units are powered off, the clock function either completely stops, or just looses a large chunk of time. You'll notice this when you re-boot if you will immediately press the Power/Backlight Key again as soon as the unit opens the first screen. The current (hopefully) time should be displayed there. If it is not current time, this problem is occuring in your unit. Obviously, this disrupts any and all time-based functions. If it has stopped for a long time, it is going to definitely interfere with the unit acquiring properly because it will be looking for the wrong satellites! This will also affect the alarm clock function because it depends on accurate timekeeping while the unit is switched off. Hopefully, if this is widespread, Garmin will jump all over this issue immediatey land, if it is fixable by an update, address it with the necessary update right now. Otherwise, they're going to see tons of Colorado's being returned to them as defective. Quote Link to comment
