I use always UTM/MGRS. It works all over the world. Just need to check that the maps support this.

Hi,

www.googlemaps.com is pretty good. Just zoom in close on the spot you want and there is an option to get the grid ref.. I've used this a few times to programme my car gps to get to a location and it's pretty accurate..

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.

If you press in the control stick, it will make a waypoint at your location and you can see the co-ordinates. The numbers can be displayed in various ways, all depends the settings you have used in the Etrex.
Your bearing will be on your Navigation Page.
