Are you able to bring the screen up at all?

Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

Have you tried a GPS reset? If not, I can give you instructions on how to do that

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No I have not tried a GPS reset. I do not know how to do that.
Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok... it's only a couple of steps

From Golf Mode, press and hold anywhere on the screen over 4 seconds to exit the game.

Tap the GPS Reset button that appears on the screen to do the reset.

Once you do that, it may take 15 minutes or so to get a satellite lock the first time.

When I hold the Golf Buddy button it will not reset to any screen.
Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

You should be pressing directly on the screen.

All other buttons will work. When I tap the Golf Buddy button the next screen that comes up says Application does not exist.
Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

If the app really isn't on there, that's going to be a problem. Have you tried anything else, like connecting it to the computer and updating? We can try that as well, if the reset is not working.

When I hold my finger on the screen for 4 seconds it does nothing. When I tap my finger on the screen the Application Does Not Exist message comes up.
Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok... there must be something wrong with the software. Do you have the Golfbuddy software on your computer?

No
Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok. I'm going to give you the steps here, but I'll also give you a link to a video that steps through it - that is a little easier to follow because it's several steps.
