When I turn on my Garmin Legend, draggng anchor appears and a loud alarm sounds. None of the buttons work.Can't even turn it off.


This may not be the solution but go to their web site. I had problems with me Etrex Vista and they sent me patches, etc and finally I ended up sending it back and they fixed it and sent me a new one. If you can back up your waypoints etc. Do so because once they get it those will be wiped out.

Consistent error entering garmin etrex coordinate in google earth


Consistent errors are usually projection or datum related. If you are taking coordinates collected in one projection and displaying them in your GPS in another, you the points will offset. I'm not talking about the decimal degrees 00.000n 000.0000w vs 00 00 00N 00 00 00W. I'm talking about the geographic model to represent the surface of the earth. Google Earth generally uses a geographic projection with WGS 1984 or WGS84 Datum. Make sure you are using the same settings on your GPS.

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.
