My Garmin Nuvi 760 keeps turning itself off, it will only stay on for about 30 seconds before it switches off. I thought it may be a battery problem so I fitted a new battery but it made no difference.

Improving the GPS Accuracy, Distance and Speed Readings of an Outdoor Watch. With a strong satellite signal, the GPS position reported by an outdoor watch should be accurate to 3 meters or 10 feet.

Usually when I run longer than that I start to vary more so have less to compare with my old Garmin tracks, but my feeling is that it's not just a matter of being off at the beginning. If I compare the tracks made by the AW with those made by the Garmin over the same terrain, the Garmin track is much smoother, and more accurately follows the route I actually took.

I don't see anything on their website that indicates a cost. 1) Insert SD Card into your navigation unit. 2) On the navigation interface, touch: Settings > Device > Update Map. (This will initiate data export from the navigation unit onto your SD Card) 3) When the export is complete, remove your SD Card.

By default, Smart Recording is enabled on most of Garmin's GPS watches. This isn't to increase battery life, but rather because Smart Recording allows for smaller files that take up less memory.

If worn too loose the watch can slide around, creating a gap between the optical heart rate sensor and your skin. If the watch is worn too tight it can actually restrict blood flow. The watch is properly tight when you can move the watch and the skin underneath moves with it.
