Adjusting the Backlight
1. Press and quickly release the POWER key. 2. Press up on the ROCKER to increase the brightness and down to decrease. 3. Press ENTER or QUIT to close.
To adjust the backlight level:
Hold the unit in front of you facing the sky. While the GPS receiver is searching for the satellite signals, a Locating Satellites message is replaced by an Acquiring Satellites message until enough signals are acquired to fix its location.
The outer circle represents the horizon. The inner circle is a location 45 degrees from the horizon.
Initializing the GPS Receiver
The first time you turn on your eTrex, the GPS receiver must collect satellite data and establish its current location. To receive satellite signals, you must be outdoors and have a clear view of the sky.
The number of each overhead satellite is shown. The strength of each satellite signal is shown.
If the unit cannot establish a satellite fix, a list of solutions appears. Highlight the appropriate solution, and press ENTER.
The Status Bar and Date and Time
The Status Bar and Date/Time Window appear below the backlight adjustment slider when you press and release POWER.
Using the Mapping Databases
Status Bar - Date/Time Window
Power to the unit is provided by batteries or from an auxiliary source. Power status is shown on the Main Menu and the Status Bar. The Battery Power icon shows the remaining power as the battery is depleted. The external power icon is shown when the unit is powered externally. Satellite signal status is shown when searching for or acquiring satellites , a 2D fix is attained and a 3D fix is attained. The Electronic Compass (Vista HCx and Summit HC only) appears when activated.
Many of the eTrex features require detailed mapping data to be fully operational, so you need to transfer maps before using the unit. The eTrex Vista HCx and Legend HCx are equipped with a slot for a microSD card (user provided) that can be loaded with detailed maps from optional MapSource disks. With selected MapSource mapping data, you can view listings of nearby restaurants, lodging, shopping centers, attractions and entertainment, and addresses. The amount of data transferable is 24 MB for the eTrex Summit HC and Venture HC, for the eTrex Vista HCx and Legend HCx it is determined by the size of the microSD card. Use the USB Interface Cable, provided with the unit, to transfer MapSource data from a computer to the microSD card when installed in the eTrex. Purchase additional microSD cards at your local electronics supplier, or see the Garmin Web site: www.garmin.com for compatible MapSource products and pre-loaded microSD cards.

Creating a Route
Routing creates a sequence of waypoints that lead you to your final destination. The eTrex stores 50 routes with up to 250 points each. Create or modify a route using the Routes page, and add waypoints to a route. Create complex routes using MapSource mapping.
Route on the Map Page
To create a waypoint on a saved track:
1. Press MENU twice > Routes. 2. Select New > <Select Next Point>. 3. Use the Find Menu to select a route waypoint from one of the Find groups. 4. Select Use to add it to the route. 5. Select Navigate.
To create a route:
Methods for routing you to a destination If you select Go To on the Waypoint page, or for other Find items, a straight path is created. If you select Navigate when on a Route page, the eTrex uses a route made of waypoints or Find Menu items. It navigates directly from point to point. When using an eTrex HCx unit, both navigation methods change when you select the Follow Roads option on the Routing Setup page. Both Go To navigation and point-to-point allow you to Auto-route using roads. Auto-routing uses roadways in the map database to automatically calculate a route to your destination. Turns on roadways are preceded by a guidance message with a graphic of the turn.
(Auto-Routing is a feature available only with the eTrex Vista HCx and Legend HCx.) This feature is enabled when using City Navigator mapping data. When you select a destination, and select Go To, you are queried, Follow Road or Off Road. Using Follow Roads increases the number of turns and shows an Active Route page. Select Off Road to view only a list of route points. A Calculating Route message appears until the route calculation is complete. Your route appears as a magenta line overlaying the map.

eTrex HC series Owners Manual27
Using the Electronic Compass
(All of the eTrex HC series units use a GPS data driven compass but only the Vista HCx and Summit HC have an additional electronic compass.) When you press and hold QUIT on these units, the electronic compass turns off and stays off until you press and hold QUIT again. The electronic compass functions like a magnetic compass when you are stationary. When you are moving and reach a pre-set speed, it uses data from the GPS receiver to maintain your heading. When you stop (after a pre-set time), it again operates like a magnetic compass. To turn the electronic compass on or off:
4. Begin traveling to your destination on a course line using the course pointer as a guide. OR Select Project Waypoint.
Project Waypoint Page
2. Hold the unit at eye level and line up the two sighting marks with the distant object. Press ENTER to lock the direction. 3. Select Set Course.
5. Enter an estimated distance from your current location to establish a projected waypoint location. 6. Select Go To to open the Map page and begin navigation to the projected waypoint. The Compass page shows a bearing pointer for guidance.
Using the Course or Bearing Pointer
The bearing pointer and course pointer are independent of each other. The bearing pointer indicates the direction to your destination, and the course pointer indicates your relationship to a course line leading to the destination. If the bearing pointer arrow is pointing straight up, for example, you are going directly to your destination. If it points any direction other than up, turn toward that direction until the arrow is pointing up and then continue in that direction. The bearing pointer points to the destination.
If you are using the course pointer option, and you drift away from the line of travel from your original location to your destination, the course deviation indicator (an arrow with horizontal dotted line) provides graphic indication of drift (right or left) according to the scale shown on the compass ring. Move to the right or left to get back on course.
The course pointer indicates your course of travel from your original location and the distance off course.
The bearing pointer always indicates the direction to your destination from your current location. eTrex HC series Owners Manual31

Deep foliage, nor canyons phase the rugged eTrex Vista HCx. Its high-sensitivity receiver holds a GPS signal in the toughest environments. Similar to the Vista Cx, this handheld navigator also has a bright color screen, barometric altimeter, electronic compass, microSD card slot and automatic routing for wherever adventure takes you. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex Vista HCx locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Vista HCx to help you find your way when you need it the most. The Vista HCx has a built-in electronic compass that provides bearing information even while you're standing still, and its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use the altimeter to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. Adding maps is easier than ever with Vista HCx's microSD card slot. Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards with MapSource data for your land and sea excursions. Just insert a MapSource card with detailed street maps, and Vista HCx provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. Like the rest of the eTrex series, Vista HCx is lightweight and compact - the perfect size for all your travels.
