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.

How do you enter coordinant into GPS to find a


the 1212 will not do what you want it to do...its just not capable of taking longitude and latitude.you can get copy of your manual for your 1212 here

.probably the easiest way around this problem, is to get the address somehow (was there a phone number provided with the rv location list)

if you know the approximate location, you can use google maps to zoom in and get a street address
google maps here

you could also use google earth if you have it..if not, you can get it here very cool even if youll only use it once.

you can enter longitude and latitude in google earth

let me know if you need more help

good luck

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.

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.
