    I purchased an etrex 30x a year ago. Worked fine for the year. Now tracks are not recorded. I reset the device to factory defaults, then set units to metric and position format to UTMs / WGS84 which worked last year. Still no track recording. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bruce

    There are a few steps that must be followed

    1) Your Etrex needs to know where it is, ensure you have these 5 green bars

    2) Next ensure Track recording is on by selecting "Record Show on Map", record method = Auto, with option "More often"

    3) While watching your position on the Map screen walk to a new location, the pointer / map should move to show your new location and a Track line should should be displayed showing how you got to the new location
