In GoogleEarth, change your coordinates to decimal format. In your Lowrance GPS, change that format to decimal. You don't mention which Lowrance model so I can't find the online manual to tell you exactly how to do it.

Just take the last 2 pairs of numbers and divide them by 6.
Example if it is 37 38 it would then be 623.

How do I program my lowrance to locate reefs if I have the lat log reference?


You can go to your GPS page and zoom out and then using your cursor pad and move your cursor so it is in the general area of your coordinates. Start zooming in andifferent as you do the the lat, long readings on your screen will become more precise. Continue to adjust your cursor position so the coordinates match up with known position you have. Continue until the cursor position on screen and your known coordinates match.
Push "ENTER" twice. Your way point will be saved at the current position of the cursor.
OR
Push your cursor pad to bring up your crosshairs on the GPS screen. Save that waypoint, then go in and edit the coordinates to match your location data and save it. The waypoint you created will move to the new coordinates.

How do you enter coordinant into GPS to find a


the 1212 will not do what you want it to do...its just not capable of taking longitude and latitude.you can get copy of your manual for your 1212 here

.probably the easiest way around this problem, is to get the address somehow (was there a phone number provided with the rv location list)

if you know the approximate location, you can use google maps to zoom in and get a street address
google maps here

you could also use google earth if you have it..if not, you can get it here very cool even if youll only use it once.

you can enter longitude and latitude in google earth

Consistent error entering garmin etrex coordinate in google earth


Consistent errors are usually projection or datum related. If you are taking coordinates collected in one projection and displaying them in your GPS in another, you the points will offset. I'm not talking about the decimal degrees 00.000n 000.0000w vs 00 00 00N 00 00 00W. I'm talking about the geographic model to represent the surface of the earth. Google Earth generally uses a geographic projection with WGS 1984 or WGS84 Datum. Make sure you are using the same settings on your GPS.

Downloading latitude and longitude


Do you want to enter them manually, or via USB?

To enter a location manually, using only GPS coordinates, try the following: Create any entry in your address book - it doesn't matter what you enter since you will be totally changing it anyway! Then 'edit' the address book entry that you just created, putting what you want in each data field. Finally, edit the GPS coordinates for this address book entry (note that you have to overwrite the whole entry, beginning with N, S, W, E and then the numbers). Save your changes and now you have an address book entry for that rig.

I do not know how to download this directly using the USB connection - sorry.

ETrex Legend, GPS Coordinates from Google Earth Don't Match Basemap


Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?

GoogleEarth: save the waypoints in a KML file (NOT KMZ) to your computer, naming it appropriately.
Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabel/ and convert the KML file to a GPX file, using their converter. They will present you with a file to download. Download it and send those waypoints to your unit and you'll be set to go.
