Question about Garmin eTrex Legend Cx GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Garmin eTrex Legend Cx and when I plug into my PC to download updates, I get an error message that says I need to set the interface option to "Garmin" or "Host." I am pulling my hair out.... cannot find any menu options to make this happen and no instructions how to set it. Please help! Thanks. Chris

    That solution doesn't work. Respectfully, the very first thing I did is check the Garmin site for the webuploader and USB drivers, etc.



    The whole point I was making is that, despite loading USB drivers, installing the WebUpdater, etc, my PC does not and cannot recognize my Garmin unit. It didn't work on Windows XP and does not now work on Windows 7.



    I ended up contacting Garmin support directly.

First i presume you are getting your software/firmware here ?

I would suggest you use the webupdater software and it's very automated and should not cause any issues. if that setting is still and issue the manual will provide you with detailed instructions to resolve it.

the manual(s) can be found here https://buy.garmin.com/support/manuals/manuals.htm?partNo=010-00190-00

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.

Problem with display


Try updating the unit's software via the Garmin website. There was a satellite launched last year which was causing this problem, and updating the unit's software fixes this. Don't forget to come back and tell us if this fix worked for you.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX


The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.

PC will not detect Legend GPS


Change the interface setting to NMEA Out and see if that helps. That is what I did on my Legend, bought in 2003. It still crashes the computer every so often, however, and I haven't figured out why.

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.
