I can't put maps on my Garmin etrex legend HCx


Your MicroSD card may be full just from the basic maps. Try larger card for additional maps. The vendors supply the minimum to keep the cost low and then force the customer to upgrade the resources at their own expense.

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.

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.

Map down load


You can view segments of the maps at the Garmin site and it will show you how much detail there is.
Go to http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/mapSource/topous.jsp#
and on the far right side of the page, you'll see a link to Mapsource Map Viewer Topo USA 2008. Click on that and zoom in to your area.
Yes, you can download the map segments to your unit.
