+pppingme Posted April 16, 2006 Share Posted April 16, 2006 I'm in Kansas City. I've been reading a lot of people stating that they are seeing sat #48 on their garmin units. I've never seen it. I have a Legend. I finally got my hands on a yellow etrex, it shows a very strong signal from 48 and a weak signal from 35, and had D's across the screen. From my perspective, although I can sometimes see #35, its pretty low in the horizon, so pretty much useless. I rarely see D's on my unit in the past month. Also, dont know if its related or not, but for about two months now, the real accuracy of my Legend is out the window. It jumps all over the place. I can be standing right at a waypoint, and one minute it shows a close reading (less than a couple feet) and the next minute it shows I'm 60 to 100 feet off. The estimated accuracy also jumps all over the place. I also tried turning on the Legend, covering the antenna area, and it comes up and asks about the time and my location. I've tried choosing both options. My understanding is that choosing either of these options forces the unit to re-learn the sat locations, is this correct? Should I be seeing #48? Should I be seeing D's? Quote Link to comment
