+Bicycle Repairman Posted October 3, 2009 Share Posted October 3, 2009 (edited) Just recently, I have just had a new overhauled eTrex Vista HCx delivered to me from Garmin to which I have noticed a problem. I am reluctant to send it back to Garmin for a replacement as it will be the 5th (yes fifth!), GPS unit that I’ve sent to them with a problem and which they have replaced. I noticed that it had installed firmware version 3.00 and chipset SW version 2.90. Apart from the occassional flickering screens that seems to be common amongst the Vista HCx’s, I noticed that whilst playing the Gekoids game, the triangular spaceship (after a short time playing) gives up turning and just stays pointing in the same direction and cannot be rotated. So I updated the firmware to version 3.10 (SW2.90) but this didn’t correct the problem. I then downgraded the firmware to version 2.80 (SW2.90) and this still didn’t correct the problem. I hope it’s a firmware problem not the hardware problem and that a future firmware version will sort it. Has anyone noticed/experienced this problem?
