Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver
I have downloaded sections on Garmin topo and see them in my handheld map menu. I can't seem to figure out how to actually view them. What am I doing wrong?
In Map Setup page, scroll over to blue 'ball' icon (second from right), press lower left button on side of GPS unit, use Thumb switch to scroll down to "Show None", click Thumb switch in. All maps will disappear. Press lower left button on side of GPS unit again, scroll down to "Show Topo.....", click Thumb switch in. Your Topo maps should now show onscreen.
The reason your Topo map might not have shown is because, if you leave the Navigator map showing, and then just press "Show Topo", the layer showing Topo will still be under the Navigator map. This is why I always tell it to show none, and then load whatever map I need to see onto a bare screen.
If this solved your problem, please come back and rate our answer as this assists others. Thank you.
