Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Please tell me, how old is your GolfBuddy WT5 ?

As for a reset for that device, try (from a device-turned-Off state) pressing and holding down the Power button for 8 to 10 seconds.

Let me know, please. I will offer further instructions and advice as needed.
