With the eTrex Legend, Garmin has loaded a full basemap of North and South
America into one small unit. The Legend is also designed to provide precise GPS
positioning using correction data obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation
This product will provide position accuracy to less than three meters when
receiving WAAS corrections.
The basemap contains lakes, rivers, cities, interstates, national and state
highways, railroads and coastlines. The eTrex Legend is also equipped with
additional memory totaling eight megabytes. The added memory allows the eTrex
Legend to accept downloaded map data from Garmin's entire line of MapSource®
CD-ROMs, including U.S. Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots. The eTrex
Legend comes in a brightly-colored translucent blue case that really makes the
unit stand out. New to the product design, Garmin will include marine aids to
navigation in addition to the basemap. These navigational aids will be
pre-loaded into each unit from the factory.
