Using French grid reference system

How can I use the French grid reference system with my Garmin Etex I bought in the UK? when I scroll through the possible country grid systems, I seem to have many European options but not France. Is it possible or do I need to download something? Thanks John

Does aby know if my Garmin 1310 can use OS grd references instead of longditute and latitude? If so how is it set up?


Unfortunately Garmin satnavs do not allow OS Grid References instead of Longitude and Latitude. However if you need to find the Longitude and Latitude of a point it can be done by going to http://www.gorissen.info/Pierre/maps/googleMapLocationv3.php Zoom in on the location you want and left click on it. The longitude and latitude will appear in a box to the right of the map. You need to set the co-ordinate system of the satnav to match the longitude and latitude format of the satnav. To do this touch Where to, Co-Ordinates, Format. Enter the co-ordinates and touch next. It's not an ideal solution but it might help you out if you're stuck.

Grid reference


If you mean the WGS or MGRS grid reference, you have to change it in the 'navigation' options.

I'm attempting to re-install maps on to my 7 year old Legend using the 'save to device' button. I get the following notice-'Your GPS does not support map transfer'. Why does my GPS no longer acccept maps...


Garmin Express cannot be used to transfer firmware to the etrex Legend. Use:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=25

Legend/Vista/Etex (H)Cx, any unit released prior to the Colorado) have map limits. They will only read 2gb of maps on a card (even if the card is larger) and will only read 2024 segments.

You would have to ask Garmin support as to why you cannot use the old disks. It may be irrelevant, but all methods of updating a Garmin do NOT work on all Garmins regardless of age. Even a utility that does work may work only if it is the version applicable to that generation of Garmin GPS units.

FYI, even if you have lifetime maps (free), you will only get free replacements for the maps that came upon the Garmin. An Australian Garmin with free maps will not allow you to get free maps while in the USA. You would have to pay for such.

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well

Garmin Etrex - ORdnance Survey Grid reference nos


You shouldn't have to connect to a computer. I don't have an OS map in front of me but I'm guessing they use UTM with a WGS 84 datum (if the map was produced after 1984 that is). Got to the Setup page then select Units. Change Position Frmt to UTM/UPS and Map Datum to WGS 84.

Flex Grid


The most common multidimensional array, the two dimensional array table, is best presented to your users in row and column format. The grid control offers a convenient way for you to display table data to your users. The users can navigate the table's values using scrollbars. Therefore, the grid control does not have to be as large as the table, because the grid control automatically displays scrollbars.
To add the flex grid control to your toolbox, select project and components. Add the flex grid control:
lesson97-1.jpg Once it is added, you will see the yellow flex grid control in your toolbox:
lesson97-2.jpg When you place the grid control on your form, you will have to resize it before the control takes on a tabular appearance. As you expand the size of the control, it does not look to much like a table. The problem is that the table's default number of rows and columns are two. To fix this problem, you must configure the rows and columns in the properties window:
lesson97-3.jpg lesson97-4.jpg lesson97-5.jpg The grid control supports fixed rows and columns. These refer to rows and columns in a grid control that do not scroll when the user clicks the scrollbars. The fixed rows and columns provides labels that describe the data. The fixed rows and columns are often called row and column headers.
lesson97-6.jpg When working with the grid control, much code is needed to provide the grid with functionality. Call statements are used to break the code required by the grid control into smaller, more manageable procedures. This is referred to as modular programming (which refers to the practice of placing code with a single purpose in a general subroutine procedure and then calling the code from a second procedure.)
Here is the code for the form load procedure (this example is based on the computer disk example used in the last lesson)


Private Sub Form_Load()
Call SizeCells
Call CenterCells



grdGrid.Row = 0
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "Single Sided; Low Density "
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; Low Density"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "Singled Sided; High Density"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; High Density"

grdGrid.Row = 1
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "3 1/2 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$2.30"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.75"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$3.20"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$3.50"



grdGrid.Row = 2
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "5 1/4 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$1.75"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.10"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$2.60"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$2.95"

End Sub
Notice how the form load procedure is used to populate the cells in the grid control. To control cell size and cell alignment, two smaller procedures are created and each procedure is called by the form load procedure.


Private Sub SizeCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

grdGrid.ColWidth(0) = 1100

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColWidth(intColumn) = 2200
Next intColumn

End Sub

Private Sub CenterCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColAlignment(intColumn) = flexAlignCenterCenter
Next intColumn

End Sub

Notice that the size and alignment procedures are only applied to columns 1 through 4. Column 0, which is a fixed column reserved for labels, is not formatted using either of the above two procedures.
Here is the final result:

LG LRFD22850 Replacing support grid for bottom crispers in refrig. Need help.


It is a challenge to replace those grids.  Instead of trying to fit the support grids into the frame, bend the frame slightly to fit the grids.  You will need to remove the steel support from the frame before bending the frame.  That is what I have been able to do when I have those problems.
