Garmin Etrex 20 sticky issue on 2.80 firmware

Recommended Posts

... Is totally FIXED!!! Whoooooo whoooooooo!!! Thank you garmin! And thank you all that kept the sticky posts alive until they took action.


After a few days of use on 2.8, I have not had a single lockup of the map or distance to waypoint. It continues to correct its location under all circumstances yet the direction arrow / gps compass stays controlled and confident. They absolutely exceeded my expectations . Nice work garmin... I have my geocaching gps again!


Thought I would drop by and share the good news.... Cheers!

I have not seen the stickies but have seen the sluggies, sluggish to move the arrow and and occasional confusion. Most have been cleared by a reboot. What I don't like is the sort waypoints alphabetically, every time I go to look at a waypoint it it pops up the text entry and I scroll down to dismiss it. ugh. I was thinking it would be neat on the caches but quickly dismissed that idea. Still not convinced having both GPS and GLOSNASS on is a good idea, seems to work better with just GPS. But certainly much better than when I first got it at Christmas time. In fact I cleared a DNF I got my first time out. The etrex was all over the place, yesterday went right to it without hesitation. Getting pretty close to being a finished product. I noticed the Oregon's seem to be getting firmware updates for improved compass performance, I would like to think the etrex owners got Garmin to finally look at that part of the code.
