Hi,

If the buttons are not responding then you will have to send it for a repair.

    You can try a hard reset:

    Hard Reset:
    With the unit turned off, press and hold the follow
    buttons: PAGE + Enter on the click stick. Then press and release the
    POWER. The unit will power up asking if you want to release all user
    data. Select yes, and the unit will be reset. After the master reset,
    place your unit outside, so that it has a clear view of the sky for 25
    to 30 minutes for the unit to acquire new almanac data.

Garmin etrex 12 channel gps, screen very dim contrast with new batteries


For the Etrex Legend you can click the page (top right hand) button till you get the main menu, select setup then display. Point the click stick down until the bar on the left is highlighted. You can then move the bar up and down until you get the contrast you want. You could first try clicking the square near the top right and selecting restore defaults, but if the default contrast is not to your liking then you can change it using the bar.
It is probably similar on related models such as the Venture or Vista, if in doubt check your manual.

Upper left side scroll buttons take the curser to the top or bottem of list , no one line at a time. Do you think the problem is the button or board or software?


Use your Thumb stick to move the cursor around the screen, from one icon to another. The left side buttons are for scrolling from screen to screen only.

Manual states: Move up/down, right/left to move through lists, highlight fields, on-screen buttons, icons, enter data or move the map panning.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate our solution, thank you.

I have inserted a preprogrammed data card in to my Garmin Legend HCx but cant find the maps


Main menu > Setup > Map
Scroll across the icons to the fifth one (an i inside a blue circle). Press left bottom button on the side of the GPS. Scroll down to Show None, press the enter button, then scroll down again to the maps you want to show and press the enter button again. The new maps should now show on the screen.

Hope this solves your problem. If so, please come back and tell us, and rate our solution. Thank you.

Garmin etrex legend and external antennas


Check the Garmin website for external antennaes. I have this problem too, and get around it by placing the unit on my dashboard under the windshield. Never had a problem getting a signal there.

Etrex legend has stopped picking up satalites.


I have had this problem occasionally and if you use Restore Defaults it appears to fix it. Using the front button go to Main Menu, Setup, System, move left and press the button button. Before I did this I just used to leave it a few weeks and it would suddenly be working again.

Click Stick "enter" function not working


I have exactly the same problem, stick doesnt work up, left or enter. I encountered this website:

It's at our own risk and I havent tried it myself yet, but still, it might be worth it.

Map down load


You can view segments of the maps at the Garmin site and it will show you how much detail there is.
Go to http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/mapSource/topous.jsp#
and on the far right side of the page, you'll see a link to Mapsource Map Viewer Topo USA 2008. Click on that and zoom in to your area.
Yes, you can download the map segments to your unit.

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.
