There are a few instances in which you may want to perform a master reset on your GPSMAP 62 or 64 series device, including the following:

  • not receiving a satellite signal
  • restoring the factory default settings
  • not functioning properly

To perform a master reset:

  1. Ensure the device is powered off
  2. Press and hold Page and Enter simultaneously
  3. Power on the GPS while continuing to press both buttons
  4. Release the buttons once the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears
