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