  1. With the screen facing you there is a button on the left which is a joy stick, you use it to go up, down, left or right. On the right side you have two buttons the lower turns it on the upper changes screens. turn it on and change screens until you get one that has find and mark at the top. Use joy stick to go up and over to mark then push straight down on the joy stick. You will now have a screen that at the top is a number, scroll up to that block and push down on the joy stick. when you push down on the joy stick a bank of #'s and letters will come up and you can use the joy stick to move from # to # or to letters, you can now change the # to either a # or letter by scrolling to whichever yoy want, a name or #.. If you scroll down after hitting ok you will see a block that has coordinates, when you get there push down on joy stick to enter this field. You will see right and left arrows at the bottom which will allow you to use the joy stick to the different #'s to change the coordinets, every time you enter a # it will go to the next # until you get the coords yoy wish to follow. After you get the coord you want hit ok and scroll down you will see at the bottom "map" or "go to". if you hit map it will show these coords on a map on the screen, if you hit go to it will draw a line from where you are to the coords that you entered. All you have to do is follow that line. On the left of the gps there are two bottons at the top that allow you to scroll in and out to change the map level, if you scroll out to where you see boththe start and finish the gps will actually automaticall scroll in as you get closer. hope this helps, I do not have my gps with me but I think I have it right. You can e-mail me if you have questions. hndlbr p.s. good caching to you

  2. Add me to the eTrex Legend users. It took me about 2 weeks or so to get used to it. I use the USB to upload my coords. I've been known to mistype when I hand enter them.


    The biggest thing I learned with mine is, once you get near the cache by using the autoroute feature is to go back to find and change it to 'off road." That will stop it from sending you in circles looking for a road while you are on foot.


    The biggest complaint I have about mine is the non-paperless caching. But it's our first GPS and it works.

  3. I am 0ver 70 and have biked for 60 years. I have a unicycle, a ten speed, a tandom, a reproduction of the "penny farthing" and have ridden 200 miles on a week end. I always wear a helmit and have had many ocassions that I was glad that I had my "brain bucket" on. P.S. I am a psyc nurse and have taken care of brain injured pts. (not fun).

  4. I love getting a 1st to find but equally enjoy being beaten to the cache. I have gone out in freezing rain to score only to find previous logs and I say good for them. Even more fun is to find that difficult cache with all those dnf's.
