Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Hello. If someone gave me GPS coordinates on a data sheet and now I need to relocate these coordinates, how do I use the GPS to get to this exact location? The waypoints were not saved in the unit otherwise I could just click on the waypoint and actively track my course towards it.

How do I program my lowrance to locate reefs if I have the lat log reference?


You can go to your GPS page and zoom out and then using your cursor pad and move your cursor so it is in the general area of your coordinates. Start zooming in andifferent as you do the the lat, long readings on your screen will become more precise. Continue to adjust your cursor position so the coordinates match up with known position you have. Continue until the cursor position on screen and your known coordinates match.
Push "ENTER" twice. Your way point will be saved at the current position of the cursor.
OR
Push your cursor pad to bring up your crosshairs on the GPS screen. Save that waypoint, then go in and edit the coordinates to match your location data and save it. The waypoint you created will move to the new coordinates.

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

We are going to Adelaide in 2 days and I have coordinates for a country house with no road names. How do I put these into my tomtom?


Have you tried talking to your sat nav, using the voice activation system? Other than that you could find a place that is close too where you are going to get you there and then ask someone, I know that defeats the object of the satnav, but Aus is not exactly a small place, Right, The only other thing i can suggest is too contact tomtom.com/support

How do I convert the gps coordinates from Google Earth?


In GoogleEarth, change your coordinates to decimal format. In your Lowrance GPS, change that format to decimal. You don't mention which Lowrance model so I can't find the online manual to tell you exactly how to do it.

Getting to see the UTM coordinates of where I am on the gps screen


The solution is in the manual but however it is not given the prominence it deserves. It is talked about in passing and yet it is the most important thing GPS users need. One goes to the Pointer and uses the scroll up and down keys to get the coordinates aprt from other things like bearing, elevation, sunrise or sunset time, trip odmeter etc .

The manual should clearly show this prominently. I gave this GPS to 4 people and the manual and all failed to figure this out. This shows the instruction is not user friendly. The Old Garmin GPS would lead you straight into coordinates and the accuracy reading on the same screen display and this was simple.

thanks

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.

GPS car system


Most of the NUVI units will show you your coordinates, but none show you your altitude, to my knowledge. When you ask if they can be used as a "handreceiver", again, the NUVIs can be set to "Pedestrian" mode and used hand held.

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.
