    you have a SD card in the device correct?

    What are the exact directions that the map gives for downloading onto the device, are you following them perfectly. Please post them here if after trying it again, it doesn't work and I will see what is being missed

Chat session ended by mistake. I need help with getting my Garmin GPSMAP 60 CX up and running. 1. I have successfully loaded Trip and Waypoint Manager on the computer 2. I have the unit hooked up to the...

You cannot load maps to the unit using the Trip and Waypoint Manager software. That software only does what it's called - it transfers routes and waypoints. To install maps onto your GPS, you will need Mapsource, which normally comes with the maps. Once it's installed on your PC, you hook up your GPS with a mini-USB cable, choose which maps you want transferred to the unit, and then the Mapsource software will knit the map segments together and transfer them over to the unit. Hope this helps.

My Etrex Legend would not aquire satellites and after several call to tech support, I finally reset the whole unit. First I saved the waypoints on Mapsource. Then with the unit off press and hold the page button (upper right) then push the rocker button in and then push the power button. Once it starts you can then release all the buttons and set the unit outside for about 20 minutes.

You need Garmin MapSource (Trip and Waypoint Manager) and a data cable. Then for free maps visit the murky internet sites and beware of what you download. I would not bother with a topo or marine maps on a grey screen GPS anyway as the colour maps will not be easily understood on a grey screen.

Entering map references manually

To enter a waypoint, either use Mapsource software and transfer to the unit, or else create a waypoint and then edit it to the proper co-ordinates.

I have a Garmin GPSmap76 and did the update from garmin and it took my basemape off so what can I do to get it back? It updated me from 2.0 to 4.0 can you help me?

That sounds strange. I wasn't aware that you could remove the basemap. Anyway, if you want to put the unit back to factory specs, as when you received it new, you may want to consider doing a Master Reset. Be aware that you will loose all user input - that means settings which you have entered, waypoints, routes, and tracks. Make sure you have noted your settings and backed up your data before doing the master reset. I don't know if it will restore a basemap or not, but it's for sure, it will restore everything else to "original". Again, I've never hear of loosing the basemap, are you sure it's gone? You might ought to call Garmin about that 1-800-800-1020.................good luck

Unlocking a Garmin etrex venture cx

The unit comes with a base map. You will need to purchase City Navigator software if you want more detailed maps which will show all roads. If the box contained a copy of the City Navigator and you threw away the code, you'll have to purchase another unlock code from Garmin.

Garmin etrex hxc gps adding m,ore map detail.

You will need to use Mapsource to transfer the maps to your GPSr unit. This should install when you install the Topo Britain program.

You will then choose which map segments you want to transfer, and the program will do the rest.

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 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.

I believe they fixed this problem with a firmware upgrade. Use Garmin's web updater to perform the updates.
