Garmin 35 etrex touch no more signal?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've been using my Garmin etrex touch 35 for nearly two years and never had a big problem with it. Today I went out to try and find a cache and when I turned the Garmin on it couldn't find a signal. I left it searching for a while but no success. So I switched it off again, took the batteries out and back in, turned it on, switched the satellite off and on again and had a signal, for 10 seconds. then it was off again and didn't come back. I was in an area where I had signal with no problems before.

So, any ideas what I can do apart from get a new one? Has anyone had the same problem before and found a solution?

If it has been off for awhile, you may need to leave it outside, powered on, in clear view of the sky for 20 minutes or more before it reacquires current satellites.

well, seems that it is working again... I had left it out for 20 minutes, no success. demo mode? to be honest, I never heard of it! ;) me being a technical dinosaur. I actually did a reset to basic settings and then it found the satellite again. Nothing else seemed to work... Thanks for your answers!

On the Satellite screen hit the menu button (bottom one on the left) and select Demo mode to turn it on or off, when it's on the GPS isn't actually using the Satellites - it's intended to use in a shop where there's no satellite reception to do a "demo". That's one of the things that would be fixed by a hard reset.

 

Anyway, glad you got it working again.
