Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver
Etrex legend shuts down leaving a thin vertical line on the screen. batteries are good. unit will not turn back on unless battery is removed and reinstalled.
I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.
Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.

The newest updates work, OR if you cannot get to those updates for whatever reason, simply turning off WAAS solved the problem for me for about a week until I got a serial-usb converter.

Got to the Garmin site and download the GPS unit software update. Apparently this fixes the WAAS problem.

I have the same problem, and on maps it shows all the lines where I have been now. Would like to get rid of these

I had the exact same problem. It only occurs on mine when I have the WAAS enabled under setup.
