+QClan Posted May 15, 2013 Share Posted May 15, 2013 I've owned my garmin map 62s since March 25th. Until the last two days, it's been great. I got rechargable batteries for Mother's Day, put them in, changed the battery profile and... boom. The GPS seems to have forgotten what it's supposed to do. Is there a way to post video on here? I have video of me walking toward a cache, watching the distance decrease, while the pointer points firmly behind me. It will swing the right way occasionally, but it's become incredibly jumpy and usually points 180 degrees in the wrong direction. My iPhone is more accurate. I tried to recalibrate the compass, but it wouldn't work. I'd do the first two stages--rotating it and spinning it--which was fine. But then I was supposed to flip it end over end and that point would fail dozens of times in a row. I'm frustrated and upset that this has happened. I haven't dropped it, it hasn't gotten wet... what can I do to get the calibration corrected? Has anyone had this happen? Did I break it by putting in rechargeables? Quote Link to comment
