General Discussion / GPS for Idiots
« on: February 27, 2012, 06:36:14 AM »
Is there a manual (yes, I'm that old that I remember when instructions were printed on paper ;D) something along the line of GPS for Idiots or GPS 101 that describes in the MOST basic ways of how to use a GPS?  I've never used one (other than with my car) and I want to know more than just how to get from point A to point B.  I know there are many good tutorials on line, but to me seeing something in print will last much longer.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Downloading Maps for Use on BaseCamp
« on: February 22, 2012, 09:56:44 AM »
I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I'm a brand new user and don't understand that much about GPS.  I just bought an eTrex Legend HCx.

I tried to download a Texas Topo map from GPSFileDepot.com - twice - and it didn't work either time.  It never showed up on my BaseCamp.

Are these maps dependent upon which model GPS you have?  If so, where can I find downloads for my Legend HCx?  If not, what am I doing wrong?  When I downloaded the Texas Topo map, I followed all the instructions and it even told me that it had been downloaded successfully.

Help!  I'm stuck!  Any recommendations would be appreciated.
