Need directions to smokey's mini lake camping in Upper Sandusky?


Try this
http://www.campingroadtrip.com/campgrounds/campground/campground/4348/ohio/smokey-s-mini-lake-campgrounds
or try this (map)
http://www.americaonwheels.com/Ohio/Smokeys_Mini_Lake_Campgrounds-4
On this page
http://www.campgroundviews.com/parks/smokeys-mini-lake-campgrounds-upper-sandusky-ohio-1282/
beneath the map (shows a slightly different exact location) there is a 'get directions FROM' box - I don't know where you'll be coming from so I couldn't get any directions for you....
Or you could just telephone and ask them to guide you in (the number is quoted on each of the webpages above)

I have a garmin gps72 but now i have move to other country first i was in india and now i am in saudi arabia when i put the coordinates its showing in many kilometers


You need to find what Map Datum your map is using, it should be printed in the margin or the title of the map. Then you need to set the Map Datum the same value in the GPS 72 (Main menu, Location Tab). Most modern maps and charts use WGS84 but I wouldn't know for Saudi Arabia.

Is it possible to get inland waterway maps (IRELAND)to suit nuvi


GPS City (http://www.gpscity.ca ) sells compatible Inland lake maps. Please note Garmin does not recommend them for that unit but I am sitting at my desk with one in my Nuvi 760 and it is working fine. You will need to turn off the street maps first to see the inland lake maps. I tested it with a Garmin Pre-programmed card for Alberta Canada.

We are trying to set up our Navigation options correctly on our Triton 500. How should we have them set up? We are in the USA, Idaho.


In the USA you would set: Lat/Long as Deg.min.sec or UTM .. Compass at True North and Datum at WGS84. This assumes that your maps were constructed at datum WGS84 which is current standard.

MapCreate Topo does not have lake maps. There are 'some' maps on Lowrance's web site (Free Enhanced Lake Maps) but you may need to purchase lake maps on SD cards for the area you're interested in.

GPS position is offset from map location


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.

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.
