Garmin Vista Problem

Followers 0

Recommended Posts

We've had the Vista for a couple years and it always does a good job but lately it's giving us fits. When we start hiking into a cache the arrow is very unsteady and will flick all different directions and if it wasn't for also carrying our yellow Etrex we would have problems. It usually is when you're within 1/4 mile or less but there is no pattern and it is sometimes when you're a lot closer than that. The arrow simply goes wild and just in case you are wondering, yes, I do calibrate the compass after changing batteries. Any suggestions?

Have you tried turning off the electronic compass and just using the GPS course pointer (Press and hold the Page button on the right to turn it on and off). If the GPS course pointer works ok, try switching back to the electronic compass. If all else fails, you may need to send it back to Garmin to fix the electronic compass.


Good Luck
