+ewarz Posted November 14, 2009 Share Posted November 14, 2009 Im new to this great hobby and after some geocaching with my iphone, I decided to buy an etrex legend HCx. I got a great deal on one, found it on sale for $148. The first thing I noticed is that the maps are very... plain. After reading until my eyes hurt, I'm still not 100% clear on whether or not it is possible to get my maps to look more like the GeoCaching.com iphone app: (This image is a screen capture of my own iphone. I just want to make my etrex look similar.) Out the box, the etrex doesn't show terrain and streets. It only shows major highways. If I understand correctly, if I want streets I need to buy them from Garmin for $99? And if I want terrain maps, I have to pay yet another $99? After making a short story long (sorry), my question is, Is this the only way? I'm not willing to spend $200+ on maps for a $150 GPS... Quote Link to comment
