Garmin's eTrex Legend guides you to your destination whether you're walking in the park or hiking up a mountain trail. If your eTrex Legend won't work properly or does not receive a satellite signal, performing a master reset may fix the problem. A master reset deletes all data and preferences on the eTrex Legend and restores the settings to factory default values.
Press the "Power" button to turn off the Garmin eTrex Legend.
Hold down the "Page," "Power" and "Enter" buttons together.
Release the buttons when you see the message, "Do you really want to erase all user data?"
Select "Yes." The eTrex Legend will perform a master reset and return all settings to a default state.
Set the eTrex Legend outside for at least 20 minutes to allow the device to acquire a satellite signal.
- To reset maximum elevation data, press the "Menu" button and select "Reset." Select each item that you want to reset, highlight "Apply" and press in on the rocker.
- Resetting the device will delete all tracks, routes, waypoints and geocaches.
