I need to down load updates to my Garmin Legend.
It shuts down and locks up once it's been in use for a while.

Garmin told me that they have a Software update / patch for it.
It works when I turn WAAS off but I get a line through the blank screen when using WAAS..

SO, can anyone do this for me? I have no cable to hook up up to my computer or anyone hav a cable for sale?

Regards,

DickWaskey@ndsualumni.net
or 651-500-9948

You need a cable. You'll use the WebUpdaterTool that either came on the support CD with your GPS. It may have even been installed for you if you installed MapSource.

Are you going to the spring event? I can bring my cable along if you are.

I can't make the event... I love that area too. Kathios has the steepest cross country hill I've ever been down...

What city do you live in? Is it possible I could stop over just for the download?
