I have a Garmin etrex handheld unit. The gps data from it does not correlate with google maps gps coordinates at all. There is a 30 mile, not feet but mile difference in the waypoints. Any idea what I may...


You need to make sure your GPS unit and Google maps are using the same map datum.
In your user manual:
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf
Page 44, Setup Options, Units, Position Format: I suggest setting to:
hddd.ddddd as this is the digital format and easier to read

In Google Maps, right click - Drop Latitude/Longitude marker and this should show the co-ordinates in digital degrees. Alternatively, you can hit the SEND button in GoogleMaps, and it will send the marked location to the GPS via the Garmin website. You may have to install the Garmin plug-in into your browser first, but it's well worth it.

Make sure the co-ordinates are in the same format on both GPS units. There is a difference between degrees and minutes vs decimal degrees.

MY GPS 72 CANT ACQUIRE SATLITES AGAIN


It sounds to me like the GPS has forgotten exactly where it is on the planet. From your owner's manual (Page 7)

http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPS72_OwnersManual.pdf

I think your best bet here would be to iniialize the GPS again.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

I takes close over 3 minutes for my garmin 765T to locate a sattelite and I leave in a major east coast city. is something wrong with the system or is this normal


Holding the satellite signal strength indicator icon (upper left hand corner of screen) for a few seconds with your finger brings up a visual display showing signal strength of various satellites, accuracy, speed and elevation.

From a cold start - I too have experienced 2 to 3 minute wait times for satellite aquisition, so I would presume this is a normal. I own three different Garmin units apart from the 765T and satellite aquisition times vary on all three, most aquire satellites in under 4 minutes. Traffic on the other hand seems to take a while to load as this is dependent on availability in your area.

Toggling between lat/long and grid references


I eventually solved the problem by firstly doing a restoration of default settings. This allowed me to toggle but it was between two different presentation styles of latitude and longitude. To restore the grid co-ordinates option I went to main menu, the Setup, then then toggled to location and re-selected UTM UPS as the location format.

Have problems with the loading of the map XPC415S. Australia East coast. Will this map work with this unit?


Any bluechart that has been preloaded on an SD card should work.  Did you purchase your chip with the data preloaded or did you download it yourself?  If you downloaded it yourself, try erasing the sd card, format it, then insert the blank card in the 420 and power it up. This somehow preps the chip for the data download.  Then download the bluechart onto the chip and try again.  There is some ambiguous wording in the download screen that makes it look like some kind of error, try the download anyway and most of the time it will work. After the download is complete it should list the bluechart software version on the screen along with some other software info.  If the operating system software is not v2.5 or higher, you may need to download a software update first.
