Question about Magellan eXplorist 310 Handheld GPS Navigator

1 Answer

Magellan g p s handheld

When I try to put waypoints (from geocache locations) on a route from their coordinates, they show up on the map somewhere several miles from where they should be. When I am walking it shows my position clearly and correctly on the map but the coordinates are clearly wrong. What's going on? p.s. I'm a complete novice therefore clueless.

How to put in coordinates


Hello,

Coordinates can be entered by marking the waypoint and editing it.
From the map screen, press the joystick down for 2 seconds to mark the waypoint. Toggle up to the coordinates and press the joystick to enter the edit mode. Make the changes to the coordinates to the new coordinates and toggle to OK, press the joystick to enter the coordinates.

I have a Garmin etrex handheld unit. The gps data from it does not correlate with google maps gps coordinates at all. There is a 30 mile, not feet but mile difference in the waypoints. Any idea what I may...


You need to make sure your GPS unit and Google maps are using the same map datum.
In your user manual:
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf
Page 44, Setup Options, Units, Position Format: I suggest setting to:
hddd.ddddd as this is the digital format and easier to read

In Google Maps, right click - Drop Latitude/Longitude marker and this should show the co-ordinates in digital degrees. Alternatively, you can hit the SEND button in GoogleMaps, and it will send the marked location to the GPS via the Garmin website. You may have to install the Garmin plug-in into your browser first, but it's well worth it.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate our solution, thank you.

When pulling up geocache map


This is a common problem when you enter geocaches or Waypoints in which you DID NOT SCRUB the html code. Start Deleting Geocaches until you find the bad one and all will return to normal.

Also investigate a program called GSAK and use its stripper before you load the geocaches.

How do i enter gps coordinates?


First I suggest that you download the latest manual for your unit. Magellan has the manuals

Now if you have the latest firmware loaded then one way is to press MENU .. go to create and pick Waypoint or Geocache and the new menu will allow you to pick coordinates as the method of entry.

How do you set waypoints on the Magellan Meridian gold. To and from a location?


Press and hold the GOTO button for 2 seconds. A "Mark" screen will appear. If you are saving your current location, highlight the "Save" at bottom of screen and press enter. This will save you current location. You can edit the name of the waypoint at this screen also. You can do this before you save the waypoint or you can go to Menu/Database/User/Waypoint (the one you want to edit)/Enter. At this screen you can edit the name by pressing the arrow up or down to get to the name field and press "enter" to get to the alphabet screen. If you are entering a waypoint using coordinates, do the above but edit the coordinates to the ones you want to use and then save.

Assuming you have installed the latest firmware. When you are on the map screen, just click on the center button and do a create a Waypoint and pick current location.

Or push the MENU button .. choose CREATE a WAYPOINT and when you GPS is on and has locked in on the Satellites . then create the Waypoint.

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

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.
