Re: etrex

I would suggest playing around with it. It is somewhat easier that way. I did it that way and referred to the book when I absolutely had to. I would be more than willing to teach you it is just kind of complicated with the way this site is set up. We would need more of a chat type setting. If you have an instant messaging system of any kind let me know and I will try to link up to you when you get a chance. Thanks

I have a Garmin etrex legend, and when I enter the Lat and Long for geocaching on either the lat and long, I cannot enter the numbers 5 thru 9 into it. An example is, I can enter N 39-7.178. The blank...

Go to Main Menu > Setup > Units > Position Format > change to hddd.ddddd format. This is the decimal format which is widely used by geocaching forums.

How do I calibrate my compass in the eTrex Venture HC. The book says to go to the tje menue and then press calibration. My GPS does not give me this option.

I will be happy to help you with this. Unfortunnately, the Etrex Venture does not have an Electronic Compass, therefore you cannot calibrate it. What this means is that this unit will show the correct direction of travel as long as you are moving. The unit takes satellite reading every 1 seconds and compares it's location with the last location. This way it can read the direction of travel. It will not give correct readings unless you are moving.
I hope this helps.

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.

Downloadig from memory map

Is Mapsource installed on your PC?
Are you using the "Receive from Device" icon?
Is your unit being recognized when you use "Receive from Device"?

If your answers are yes to all of the above, you might have to update your Mapsource programme (free of charge) from the Garmin Website. Also, updating your unit software from the Garmin site is also a good idea.
Please let us know if this fixes your problem.

For back roads, you will need a Topo mapping program, ie Topo USA 2008 or Topo Canada 4 (you don't mention what country you are in).

Topo Canada comes on four CDs, Topo USA 2008 comes on one DVD so you'll have to upgrade your drive, or else load the maps from someone else's computer.

Etrex will not turn on

If batteries were ever put in backwards, you cooked it.

Garmin etrex handheld

There's really nothing to setup, you just mark waypoints and it displays them on the map. If you press enter on any screen, it will give you options for that screen.
