Sorry to ask what is probably a pretty basic question, but totally new to GPS devices. Have an etrex 30x and have loaded a map of the bottom end of South America. It shows in the internal map directory, is enabled and all other maps disabled. I would like to check the map before heading off.
I live in the UK and all I can see is a blank screen and my current location marker. No matter what i do, i cannot get the screen to show the map. I have zoomed out to the max (800km), but scrolling around is like searching in space, and no idea how to get the screen to where I need it.
Grateful for any help
