Question about Garmin GPSMAP 76 GPS Receiver
While setting up a charting program noticed the position indicated on the chart was about 1/2 mile off although the lat/long readings correlated to another GPS which displayed correct position on the chart as read on a computer. The waypoints also are now plotted off of position by the same anount. The datum selected did not shift as it is WGS84. Another sailor said he had the same problem at one time and had to replace the GPS. What gives?
If your software is less than v4.00 then download this update:
GPSMAP 76 Ver. 4.00 as of Nov 29, 2006
If that doesn't work it may be necessary to do a master reset.
