Garmin Logo

Garmin is planning the release of 4 new gps handheld models for their eTrex series this fall. 3 of the units will be Galileo ready. They seem to have boosted the sensitivity on each of the new models.

    I live in the city of Mumbai, India. Recently I picked up a Garmin etrex ‘Legend’ hand-held GPS in the States, intending to use it for marking locations of open wells that Rotary Clubs are digging for villagers. However, when I switch the GPS on — even after 30 minutes I still get the message ‘Wait, Tracking satellites” on the screen. On the display map and bar-code I see three vertical graphs and 3 satellites numbered as 26, 28 and 29,. However, no indication of my ‘position’ or ‘altitude’. Can somebody please help me to identify what’s wrong. Is it that these hand-helds work only in America ?

    Many thanks.

    You should be able to pick up a gps signal seems as though you might have something wrong with the system. Call Garmin they have very good customer service and they should be able to rectify your problem.

    Are you outdoors when you try it? You must have a clear view of the sky.
