Solved my problem by buying another new model from garmin.The e'trex was great but I rather have a model with buttons on top and a larger screen so I orderd a gpsmap76cx. This e,trex I would of sold it but not with the problem I have with it.I will contac garmin support to see what they say.It,s a rebuilt model so I think the unit was sent back for a certain problem and even thou it was rebuilt the unit is problem cursed.Thanks for your time and I won't be spending another cent on this one.

I have a etrex legend that i have not used in a while. Now when i go to turn it on nothing happens. Replaced the batteries and still nothing.


Hi,
You may be doing this already... but just tossing my first thought out there for what it's worth. Press and hold the on button for a few seconds.

My eTrex Legend cx beeps constantly when turning off. The only solution I have found is to remove a battery. Any ideas?


I have the same problem. The unit is only 1 week old and I have used it maybe 5 times. The problem started a couple of days ago when I removed the USB connection from my Mac without ejecting it first. I think this might have screwed up the microSD card. I noticed that if I remove the microSD card the unit turns on and off normally. but is I have the microSD inserted, it turns on oK, works (apparnetly) Ok, but freezes with a constant beep when I turn it off.
Will try to reformat the card (any idea how to do that on the unit itself?)

My garmin etrex legend Cx wasn't used for a few months and now won't aquire satellites. Batteries have been changed to no avail.


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 has stopped picking up satalites.


I have had this problem occasionally and if you use Restore Defaults it appears to fix it. Using the front button go to Main Menu, Setup, System, move left and press the button button. Before I did this I just used to leave it a few weeks and it would suddenly be working again.

Display on my Garmin E-Trex Legend GPS


Sounds like the screen is shot and theres nothing really you can do to fix it, sorry :(

You can send it to Garmin for the flat rate repair fee of $79 dollars. I would recommend getting the new eTrex Legend H with the high sensitivity receiver if you want a similar model. It's sat reception will blow the prior version out of the water and has 24mb of memory rather than the 8mb it used to have.

Will not turn on


I contacted Garmin and they had me remove the microchip inside and see if that would fix the problem. It did not. So they instructed me to send it back in for repair. They gave me a return number and then ended up replacing the unit with a new one. My unit was under a year old so it was no charge.
