My GPSr just died. I don't know what happened but it doesn't see satellites anymore.
I had a Garmin Emap and want the same thing since that is what I have the peripherals for. Might someone have one to get rid of before I try Ebay?

They seem to be on ebay.
I too have an eMap that I've used prior to even knowing what geocaching is ... I love that old eMap ... I feel the pain of your loss.

Does it power-up and seem to have all the screens functional ... just no satelite data coming at it?

TRY THIS before throwing it out ... attempt a factory reset, but be aware that you will lose an data (waypoints, routes, etc.) you have stored ...

(1) Start with the Power OFF
(2) HOLD DOWN the [Esc] Key while Powering ON the unit
(3) You will see a warning screen
(4) Set the unit outside with clear view of the sky for about 15 minutes

... see if this fixes your problem ... then send me $5 in the mail if it works (just kidding).

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
You fixed it. I lost the manual years ago and forgot all about master reset.
Where do I send the $5?

Cool!
No $$$$ required.
Just make a promise to come to my neck of the woods sometime at find my 5 new caches (Zip Code 53004, all starting with the word "Harrington") ... as I'm sad that more people have not searched them out yet Crying or Very sad ... the mystery one is my new favorite of my caches Cool

Also ... I don't think you'd find that "trick" in the manual ... I believe it to be undocumented. There are other "tricks" to, but most of them are for testing the screen and buttons after the unit was produced.
