Question about Garmin 010-C0495-00 TOPO Canada - Manitoba microSD Card Maps Software

1 Answer

GPS position is offset from map location

I have just discovered that my GPS (GPSMAP 60CS) is giving positions that are westerly of the location on MAPSOURCE Topo Canada maps of Newfoundland and Labrador. For example, I cross a stream at N47 
18 26.3 W53 14 53.4 (GPS position) but according to the MAPSOURCE topo map the location is N47 18 26.4 W53 14 50.0. The difference is ~70 m. 

Does this represent an inaccuracy with the MAPSOURCE TOPO Canada maps? 

Thank you

    Thanks for your input but that is not the problem. It appears to me that the maps are accurate in central Canada but there are deviations out west and east.

This could be because your datum and your posistion format. Under your menu go to setup, then units and make sure you have the correct info set in there for your area. NAD27 Canada would be the one you are looking for. Give that a try and see if it works. If it is still off, consult the manuals that came with your topo and see if it says what datum it uses.

I haven't used my Garmin GPSMAP 292 for a couple


Have you tried pressing Page + Power at the same time while starting the 292?
Seems like there is a well Kinoen problem with the auto locate locking in wrong position and IF you reset the past position memory by pressing Page + Power while Power up should fix the problem.
You still need approx 20min location time but its better than 12-24h.

You cannot load maps to the unit using the Trip and Waypoint Manager software. That software only does what it's called - it transfers routes and waypoints. To install maps onto your GPS, you will need Mapsource, which normally comes with the maps. Once it's installed on your PC, you hook up your GPS with a mini-USB cable, choose which maps you want transferred to the unit, and then the Mapsource software will knit the map segments together and transfer them over to the unit. Hope this helps.

You can't turn the navigation back on with this method. You must once again highlight the waypoint you want to navigate to in your Fine>Waypoints screen and then press the "Go to" highlighted button on the screen.
