Buy an 8GB micro SD card and install in your 50LM, then download the maps to the micro SD card. Your internal storage is not large enough for all the maps with the updates. Hope this helps.

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.

How do I install maps from the Garmin US Topo 100K to my Garmin Etrex Vista HCx? I've put in a microSD card, then what?


You need to install the map software on your PC. From there, using the map select tool, select the maps you want to add to your GS unit and then send them to the microSD card which will show up in the SEND window.

I can't put maps on my Garmin etrex legend HCx


Your MicroSD card may be full just from the basic maps. Try larger card for additional maps. The vendors supply the minimum to keep the cost low and then force the customer to upgrade the resources at their own expense.

When you go past 4gigs on a micro SD card it becomes HC (high capacity I believe) and will not work with most Garmins. The 2 gig's the limit.
