How do I install maps from the Garmin US Topo 100K to my Garmin Etrex Vista HCx? I've put in a microSD card, then what?

You need to install the map software on your PC. From there, using the map select tool, select the maps you want to add to your GS unit and then send them to the microSD card which will show up in the SEND window.

Garmin eTrex Vista HCx searches for satellites but doesn't find any, since yesterday. Device has worked fine for a few years, has the latest firmware

I have the same problem. Satellite screen shows nothing except the rings. When I open the unit, one of the chip looks like broken; its label says K43 and V5.

Backlight issue with the Vista HCx

I called Garmin. This is "As Designed", so we are stuck with this. Annoying, but all you have to do after turning the unit on is:

1) Press Lower Right button twice
2) Press Upper Right button once

Unit will now behave as you directed until you turn it off

Garmin HCx GPS unit

The Vista HCx has an electronic compass. You don't need to be moving for it to work, but you do need to calibrate it. To calibrate the compass:
  1. Go to the Main Menu
  2. Select Setup
  3. Select Calibration
  4. You will be asked "Which Sensor Would You Like To Calibrate", select Compass
  5. You will see a page that says "To Calibrate Compass: Slowly Turn Two Full Circles In The Same Direction While Holding The Unit Level", select Enter and do this.
You need to hold the unit level for the Magnetic Compass to work correctly. The specs for a properly calibrated compass are +/- 5°
