+Station27 Posted December 28, 2004 Share Posted December 28, 2004 I was getting tired (and poor) always replacing AA batteries, so I thought I'd be clever and get some rechargable ones. I bought 6 and all seem to act the same. When I turn on my eTrex Vista, the screen goes white to black, then verticle bars, then static. If I press the button to change the screen e.g. MAP to NAVIGATE etc, the display goes back to normal and the GPS works. The battery display shows a fully charged Ni-cad. I tried changing the battery setup from alk to nic but it acts the same. The GPS turns on normaly with disposable batteries and actually does WORK with the rechargeable ones, it's just the turn on that's wierd. Any ideas??? TOM Quote Link to comment
