Customer Question

I gave my son my S2 garmin golf watch for his birthday and now he cannot hook up to golf courses. I got it when the s2 first came out. My son reset the watch. The last time I talked to a garmin tech said that it lost the golf information. My son tried to do that without success. I have the waatch here with me. John

Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue with this device.

To help with this issue, may I ask:

1) Do you have the original charge/data cable - that came with the device?

2) Do you have a computer available, to connect to the device (via the data cable)?
