If it is posible to, which it should be, go to menu, then setup, then units. Use the position frmt field, your best bet. Hope this helps!

My 3 year old Garmin Etrex Vista just started displaying horizontal lines across the entire display. Any suggestions?


Try updating the unit's software via the Garmin.com website. This may fix it as there was a satellite launched which was causing problems with some Garmin units.

Garmin Etrex - ORdnance Survey Grid reference nos


You shouldn't have to connect to a computer. I don't have an OS map in front of me but I'm guessing they use UTM with a WGS 84 datum (if the map was produced after 1984 that is). Got to the Setup page then select Units. Change Position Frmt to UTM/UPS and Map Datum to WGS 84.

Elevation Problem


Some models have the Barometric Altimeter which needs to be calibrated, and some units do not.

Vertical Accuracy of a properly calibrated Barometric Altimeter is +/- 10'. If you have a unit that uses provides a GPS Elevation only, a +/- 50' vertical solution is pretty standard.

This is a problem with the garmen, however, sometimes if you can remove the battery, and leave it out for one hour, then replace it while facing north outside, it usually re adjusts itself. also sometimes if you can reset the unit that will also sometimes bring it around. if that doesn't do it, I suggest contacting garman tech support, it may have to be sent in to have the software updated or it can be a defective unit, if it has been dropped., or gotten wet.
