Tienes mal la antena o lo conectas dentro de un edificio. Si el problema te lo da en campo abierto, tienes que enviarlo a reparar.

My eTrex Legend cx beeps constantly when turning off. The only solution I have found is to remove a battery. Any ideas?

I have the same problem. The unit is only 1 week old and I have used it maybe 5 times. The problem started a couple of days ago when I removed the USB connection from my Mac without ejecting it first. I think this might have screwed up the microSD card. I noticed that if I remove the microSD card the unit turns on and off normally. but is I have the microSD inserted, it turns on oK, works (apparnetly) Ok, but freezes with a constant beep when I turn it off.
Will try to reformat the card (any idea how to do that on the unit itself?)

My garmin etrex legend Cx wasn't used for a few months and now won't aquire satellites. Batteries have been changed to no avail.

Go to the website and download updated drivers/software for the unit. Make sure the drivers are for your specific unit as they are all different.

Etrex Legend locks up, screen blank except vertical line

Is the unit being bumped during use? If not, sounds like a call to Garmin tech support is in the works. My thought is that it's something defective inside your unit.

Etrex legend has stopped picking up satalites.

I have had this problem occasionally and if you use Restore Defaults it appears to fix it. Using the front button go to Main Menu, Setup, System, move left and press the button button. Before I did this I just used to leave it a few weeks and it would suddenly be working again.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX

The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.
If this solves your situation, please come back and rate our answer. Thankyou.

Have you tried upgrading the unit's software. Go to and download the latest software for your unit. This will sometimes fix satellite reception problems.

My Garmin Etrex wont turn on on batteries but it works fine on external usb power.

I have the same problem. The unit works until I connect it to whatever computer via USB (Mac or PC). The screen blanks out as soon as I plug in the USB cable. I have to disconnect the device and only then I am able to turn it on again. That started after Firmware update from V 2.90 to 3.00 . I am not sure this is causing problem. What about the firmware versions of your devices ? Are they all on the latest ?
However, does anybody know if there is a way to go back to firmware version 2.9 if it is not possible anymore to connect the device to any computer (evtl. through putting data on the microSD card ?).

Will not turn on

I contacted Garmin and they had me remove the microchip inside and see if that would fix the problem. It did not. So they instructed me to send it back in for repair. They gave me a return number and then ended up replacing the unit with a new one. My unit was under a year old so it was no charge.
