Where’s my pointer?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, just bought a etrex 20 x and I’m having a little trouble with the compass. When I bought this I registered it and the Garmin site updated the firmware. Everything seems to be working fine , except when I go to the compass page there is no pointer.  Anybody have any ideas? Thanks

Well, it does have a compass, but it requires that you are moving in order for it to show any meaningful information. But it does not have a built-in magnetic compass.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you still have a pointer.  Try selecting a geocache or waypoint loaded on the GPSr, then go to the compass page to look for the pointer.

Also, if you're asking about the pointer that's normally under a finger that you're moving to a location, however, this time of yeark can factor in. On he newer capacitive displays, it won't register the presence of your ringer, leat gloves withthe rubber tips so there's a capacitive reatction.
