Question about Garmin eTrex GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Etrex Vista HCx will not calculate routes.

Have a Garmin Etrex Vista HCx which is ideal for off road hiking. When I try to use it for street navigation using City Navigator Europe NT V9 via the SD card, it cannot calculate the route saying ' No road near starting point' when i am actually sitting on the road.

Any help would be appreciated.

Stephen.

Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

Garmin splits the US into 3 zones unless you have this map as a paid extra.

My garmin is not showing anything but waterways and unpaved roads.


Make sure that the unit isn't set to "Off Road" in the navigation settings. "Off Road" is for hiking. Also make sure that you have a valid city navigator map that contains streets and that it is selected (check marked) on the map info screen. Otherwise you may just be using the base map which only contains major highways

I have a Garmin nuvi 260 and I bought it in U.S. I am going to the Netherlands and when I type in Netherlands it tells me it cannot find it. How do I use this in Europe?


You'll need to buy and install European mapping, such as Garmin's City Navigator® Europe NT, or the slightly cheaper but more restricted City Navigator® Europe NT – Benelux/France.

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.
