SOURCE: gps coordinates

If you are asking to put latitude and longitude information into the C330, no, the unit is not designed to accept that type of information.

I would suggest that you go to a web site that will take those co-ordinates that you have, enter them and then get or have the program show you the other co-ordinates that you need and can use, Also you may want to check in the sub menu on the gps unit, sometimes some of them have the ability to switch to different co-ordinate system, but this is sometimes, not always. Hope this helps

SOURCE: downloading songs from an i-mac computer to a garmin zumo 660

I don't know for sure, but most likely the problem is that iTunes keeps songs in AAC format, and the Garmin wants them in MP3 format.

If that's the case, then what you need to do is this:

in iTunes, build a playlist of the songs you want to export.
Click on that playlist to show the list of songs
Click on the first song in the list, then hold SHIFT and click on the last song in the list so they're all highlighted.
Select the menu option "Make and MP3 copy". Apple keeps moving this option, so you may have to hunt for it, depending on the version of iTunes you have.

This should leave the nice-quality AAC versions alone, but also make MP3 copies of each song.
Copy the MP3 files to the SD card and try that in your Garmin.

Can I enter GPS coordinates into a gamin zumo 550


Turn on Zumo. Select WHERE TO. Depress ARROW DOWN beneath ROUTES icon. There, revealed, are 5 additional icons, one of which is COORDINATES. There are more different choices of ways to enter coordinates than you're likely to learn what they are in a lifetime.

Happy motorcycling. Keep the shiny side up.

How do i insert a coordinate to find a spesific fishing spot


Hello,

The Garmin nuvi's were designed as automotive navigators and not really designed to be used as marine or outdoor GPS units with the exception of the nuvi 550 which is an all around GPS.
The Garmin handhelds are recommended for marine and off road recreational use but it is possible to navigate if you know the coordinates of your fishing spot.
To enter coordinates: Touch Where to? > Coordinates and touch a box to enter a coordinate.
You can also refer to the manual for more information. nüvi® 215

How to find a position from GPS coordinates?


If you know the proper geographic coordinates of your destination, You can easily navigate around your destination using the longitude and latitude coordinates or other coordinate formats.
  1. Touch WHERE TO on the screen,
  2. Touch COORDINATES from the list,
  3. Touch FORMAT to change type of coordinates. Because different maps and charts use different position formats, the nuvi allows you to select the correct coordinate format for the type of map you are using,
  4. Enter the coordinates and touch DONE.
That is how you find a position using the coordinates, but you have to be very familiar with coordinates to be able to use it.

How do i enter gps coordinates into my garmin etrex hc


Hi Jdriscoll38,

Since you probably have been using this device, you know it will automatically receive and lock in on the coordinates from at least three satellites if you move outside to a large cleared area, and power up. I could list all the steps to manually set all the coordinates, and that would take a couple of pages. Download the entire 56-page manual at this site, and refer to the pages below:

http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrex_OwnersManual.pdf

Go to the top of page 20 to change the Position Coordinates.

Right below those instructions, you'll see the info for changing the Elevation.

In case you don't have this manual, after download this, you should have all the instructions you need for all operations.

Let me know if I can help further. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

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.

Gps coordinates


I was looking for a list of car gps's that had the ability of going to a location via coordinates alone. I have searched the internet a whole lot and nobody addresses the question. Even the makers (garmin; tomtom; ect) on their web sites don't give you much infor about what I want to do.

Thanks for trying.
