If you are looking at a map, you need to make sure your GPS is set to the same Datum as that. Same applies for Google Earth, which is WGS84

The Main Menu on my Garmin eTrex Legend HCx has mostly disappeared. The only icons left are Mark, Setup, Proximity, Games. I've tried removing the batteries for a while, but that doesn't do anything....


Have you tried re-seating your micro-SD card to see if that clears up the problem? Sometimes the card unseats itself and the map data loss causes some of the icons to disappear. Reinsert the card, restart the unit and see if this fixes the problem. If not, come back and tell us and we'll see what else it might be.

Etrex Garmin Legend GPS is 3 years old. Is completely unresponsive even with new batteries. Any ideas to try?


Have you hooked it up to your PC and updated the unit's internal software via Garmin.com? This might solve your issue. Pls let us know if it does.

My owner's manual and reference guide was "drowned" while fishing. I need another one for my Garmin eTrex Legend personal navigator.


hi,
This should be the manual your looking for:
Garmin eTrex Legend Manual
This is a pdf file so you will need adobe or foxit to read it, I;m sure that most pc's come with adobe on them though.
I hope that helps..

Garmin etrex legend and external antennas


Check the Garmin website for external antennaes. I have this problem too, and get around it by placing the unit on my dashboard under the windshield. Never had a problem getting a signal there.

I have a Garmin etrex Legend about 5 yrs old. After I turn it on and it gets the coordinates, the screen will go blank except for 1 vertical line thru it. Also, I get no response from any of the buttons,...


You have to update the unit's software from the Garmin site. A new satellite was launched last year which causes this problem. Updating the software fixes it.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate the post as "fixed". Thanks

ETrex Legend, GPS Coordinates from Google Earth Don't Match Basemap


Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?

GoogleEarth: save the waypoints in a KML file (NOT KMZ) to your computer, naming it appropriately.
Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabel/ and convert the KML file to a GPX file, using their converter. They will present you with a file to download. Download it and send those waypoints to your unit and you'll be set to go.
