  • Cannot hard reset Etrex 30

    Does anyone know how to solve this one?

    My unit hangs on start up showing 'loading waypoints, tracks and routes'.

    I guessed that I have placed a 'bad' file on the unit, and tried to do a hard reset by pressing menu-joystick-power on.

    I get the screen 'Do you really want to delete all your data', and I can use the joystick to highlight 'yes', but then I cannot select 'yes' by pressing on the joystick and eventually the units powers off.

    I also tried forcing USB mass storage mode but my PC no longer recognises the unit.

    Is there anyway around this aprt from sending the unit back? I plan to do an expedition next week and would like to get the unit up an running.

    Thanks for any advice...
