You can purchase the Bluechart Marine maps for your area online at Garmin.com. They will sell you an unlock code for a specific area.

WE HAVE PURCHASED A ETREX GARMIN BLUE IN COLOR AND ARE WANTING TO KNOW HOW TO GET DOWN LOADS FOR MARINE WITH OUT PAYING FOR THE CD OR DOWNLOAD


You need Garmin MapSource (Trip and Waypoint Manager) and a data cable. Then for free maps visit the murky internet sites and beware of what you download. I would not bother with a topo or marine maps on a grey screen GPS anyway as the colour maps will not be easily understood on a grey screen.

I'm attempting to re-install maps on to my 7 year old Legend using the 'save to device' button. I get the following notice-'Your GPS does not support map transfer'. Why does my GPS no longer acccept maps...


Garmin Express cannot be used to transfer firmware to the etrex Legend. Use:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=25

Legend/Vista/Etex (H)Cx, any unit released prior to the Colorado) have map limits. They will only read 2gb of maps on a card (even if the card is larger) and will only read 2024 segments.

You would have to ask Garmin support as to why you cannot use the old disks. It may be irrelevant, but all methods of updating a Garmin do NOT work on all Garmins regardless of age. Even a utility that does work may work only if it is the version applicable to that generation of Garmin GPS units.

FYI, even if you have lifetime maps (free), you will only get free replacements for the maps that came upon the Garmin. An Australian Garmin with free maps will not allow you to get free maps while in the USA. You would have to pay for such.

Go to the Garmin.com 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.

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.
