I just thought this may be useful to someone:

When I had my Garmin eTrex H connected to the PC for transferring waypoints and tracks, I ran the webupdater and installed the latest firmware (version 3.10). This fixed an irritating bug that I had noticed occasionally. When changing batteries or switching the eTrex off/on, sometimes the trip distance would gain about 3000miles. Now it seems to be completely cured. Very Happy

So whatever your GPSr, it's worth checking for updates from the manufacturer.

It's years since I last updated my trusty Geko 201, so thanks for the reminder. Dunno if it will make any difference as my Geko was fine before hand.
