Hello,

You can definitely route using co-ordinates, this search option can found under "Where To?" it may be located a couple of pages down so go through the pages to see "Co-Ordinates" from here you would be able to enter your latitude and longitude.

Hope this helps!

Create and save a waypoint for any location then update that waypoint with the lat/long you were given (just click on the lat/long and key in the new coordinates).

what you need to do is create a ' way point ' --
1.press 'Mark'
2.then highlight the ' location' field, and press enter to open the on-screen keypad
3.use the 'rocker' to enter location coordinates,, scroll up to the waypoint name window and give a name to the waypoint ( or leave as a numbered waypoint ), then Highlight 'OK' and press ' ENTER ' when finished
4. press 'Quit' to exit.
now to navigate to that way point -- hit ' FIND ' on the unit -- select 'WAYPOINTS',, choose your way point -- and select 'Go To ' and you are on your way.
if you need further help with this please write me back and ask -- I will do my best to walk you through it.
have a great day out in the world,

My Garmin nuvi 1300LMT can't find my home address and my maps are updated....HELP!


I have a Garmin nuvi 1390 and live in the country, so my Garmin was unable to locate my address. I'm not sure if this will work on your model, but it may be worth a try. What I did is this: I turned on my Garmin at my house and let in acquire the satellites, I then went to the Tools menu and chose "Where Am I?" It should now display your location using longitude and latitude. If you can save this location and name it as "Home", or at the very least write down the longitude and latitude coordinates and then use the "Where To?" function, select Coordinates, type in the coordinates and save it. You should be able to save it with any name you choose.
Hope this helps.

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.

Does aby know if my Garmin 1310 can use OS grd references instead of longditute and latitude? If so how is it set up?


Unfortunately Garmin satnavs do not allow OS Grid References instead of Longitude and Latitude. However if you need to find the Longitude and Latitude of a point it can be done by going to http://www.gorissen.info/Pierre/maps/googleMapLocationv3.php Zoom in on the location you want and left click on it. The longitude and latitude will appear in a box to the right of the map. You need to set the co-ordinate system of the satnav to match the longitude and latitude format of the satnav. To do this touch Where to, Co-Ordinates, Format. Enter the co-ordinates and touch next. It's not an ideal solution but it might help you out if you're stuck.

My garmin nuvi 780 shows me at an address a good half mile down road from my house. Also, the lat and longitude it shows me at while i'm home is 15 miles from where i am. whats wrong here and how do we fix...


The accuracy of any GPS device depends upon having good locks on multiple GPS satellites (at least 4, but up to 12 on many units).

The main screen on the nuvi shows the acquisition quality in bars (like a cell phone), but provides no further information. If you have 5 bars, your accuracy should be much better than what you report. Ideally, it should be as good as 4 meters (13 feet), though that will vary depending upon the current configuration of GPS satellites overhead.

An error of 15 miles should never occur. How confident are you of your actual latitude/longitude?

The 330 and the 340 do not show latitude or longitude. That is a serious thing that Garmin left out of these two systems. Believe me you are not the first to find this is a problem.

I can send you a powerpoint presentation that explains it in a little more detail. To really learn how to read latitude and longitude you should pick up a copy of “Chapman’s Piloting and Seamanship.”

The earth is divided into parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude, also known as lines of position.

clip_image002.jpg

Latitude is measured north and south of the equator, with the equator represented as 0 degrees, and the poles being represented as 90 degrees North or South. Latitude lines are paralel to the equator. For example, if I was at the equator I would be at 0 degrees. If I traveled exactly 60 nautical miles to the north, I would be at 1 degree North, and if I traveled another 60 miles I would be at 2 degrees north. Your GPS display will preface the Latitude measurement with an “N” for positions North of the equator and an “S” for positions south of the equator.

Longitude measures your position east or west from the Prime Meridian, which is a line represented as 0 degrees that bisects the earth from north to south and passes through Greenwich England. Halfway around the earth at the International Dateline Longitude is 180 degrees. Measuring Longitude is a little more complicated because the lines are not parallel and requires an accurate clock (your GPS) to compare time at your location relative to the time in Greenwich England. Your GPS display will preface the Longitude measurement with a “W” for positions west of Greenwich and an “E” for positions east of Greenwich.

To make more accurate measurements each degree is divided into 60 minutes. Because the lines are parallel, 1 minute of latitude is equal to 1 nautical mile. Each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds. Each second is roughly equivalent to a distance of 100’ Instead of seconds, the default setting on your Garmin breaks the minute down into tenths, hundredths, and thousandths for meven more precise measurements. Because they are not parallel, lines of Longitude are measured the same way, but the distances vary depending on how far north or south of the equator.

To find out where you are with a GPS, you need a map that shows lines of latitude and longitude on it. The lines will be labeled on the map or along the borders of the map. Most nautical charts show the latitude measurements along the right the left border of the map. Longitude measuremnts will be shown along the top and bottom edges.

Setting a waypoint, I do not have the altitude and the lowrance will not enter the latitude and longitude, what do I do?


Assume an altitude of zero. It will have little effect on your accuracy even if you are above (or below) sea level. When you are near the waypoint the GPS will tell you the altitude and you can edit the waypoint then.

Latitude longitude


Create and save a waypoint for any location then update that waypoint with the lat/long you were given (just click on the lat/long and key in the new coordinates).
