Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

I have a Garmin Etrex Legend and it keeps cutting out on me and I have to pull the batteries to reset it. Sometimes it just needs a tap to gt the display back. I believe that even though the problems just arose, they are separate. Can you help me?

You need to make sure your unit is set for decimal degrees. It's probably set for a different format.

My owner's manual and reference guide was "drowned" while fishing. I need another one for my Garmin eTrex Legend personal navigator.


hi,
This should be the manual your looking for:

This is a pdf file so you will need adobe or foxit to read it, I;m sure that most pc's come with adobe on them though.
I hope that helps..

ETREX LEGEND HAS 1 VERTICAL LINE ON SCREEN AND WONT SHUT OFF UNLESS YOU PULL BATTERYS


Have you updated your unit's software from the Garmin site? There was a new satellite launched in 2008 which has been causing problems, and the new update fixes this.

Etrex reset instrucitons


Hi,

If your Garmin eTrex is a Legend and you want to do a "Reset", pls try:
Hard Reset:
With the unit turned off, press and hold the follow buttons: PAGE + Enter on the click stick. Then press and release the POWER. The unit will power up asking if you want to release all user data. Select yes, and the unit will be reset. After the master reset, place your unit outside, so that it has a clear view of the sky for 25 to 30 minutes for the unit to acquire new almanac data.
This was originally posted here and a wealth of other Legend information.

Alternately, this has been posted here at FixYa as well. Pls see this post.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.
