Hi, I'm new to this site and this is my first post...
I've used a Garmin Legend HCx for geo-caching since July 2010, and with it I've had more than 500 finds. I decided to change it for one of the new Garmin Etrex 20's just a few weeks ago. I've got to say that the Legend HCx is a very capable GPS'r. If theres anything that I can help you with then just email me with the details of what you're have problems with and I'll do my best to help. Loading geocaches shouldn't take more than a few seconds. Mapping is another matter that I can help with, full OS based UK maps can also be loaded free of charge - these are regularly updated too - all free!
Email me if you think I can help you.

No problem...I don't think I actually helped to be honest!
The Legend HCx is a good unit, it only has one problem...that is, at some point in time the rubber band which goes around the sides & covers the USB socket will start to come off, leaving the brown sticky adhesive mess to get everywhere. When this happens contact Garmin and tell them that the GPS is working fine apart from the rubber seal coming off. Its an issue well known to them, they will probably offer you a replacement free of charge. This is what they did with me and countless other Etrex range GPS owners. So long as the unit is functioning correctly then they will replace it. Mention any other 'faults' and they'll charge £45 for an exchange GPS.
When you say "does the clip thingy just screw off...", that suggests that 'clip thingy' is currently attached to your Legend? The only clip that came with mine was a small black item with a large(ish) chrome screw towards one end. I never used it because its for attaching the unit to a bike handlebar, I never used it that way. If thats the clip you mean then you should be able to remove it with a small coin, a 5p should do the trick.
Hope this helps.
Now then, heres a really stupid question - do you have the owners manual for your GPS. If not then you can download it from the garmin website.
