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.

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.
well you need to update the firmware of your gps also call garmin customer support they are great tell them about the map, also the poor satelite cover might be because of your location or weather conditions
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.
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.
