The device will show your current location on the map.

Use the zoom and thumb stick to view other areas or , if your map supports it, search with the where to menu.

Your other option is to download Garmin's Basecamp program. Then when you connect your Etrex to your PC Basecamp will read and display the maps on your PC. You can also use Basecamp to send routes, waypoints etc to your device ... far easier than doing it on the device itself/
