Hi there,

Try this:

Change the map datum that you have set on the gps...  We have a Legend HCX
and we do this by:
1) go to "main menu"
2)go to "Setup"
3)go to "Units"
4)make sure the map datum is WGS84.

We tested downloading to the gps with a different datum chosen on it, and
indeed it changes it for you from WGS84 to whatever you have setup on the

Hope this helps.
