Cannot enter lat/long into GPS

I cannot get satellite coordinates or latitude/longitude to enter. I get error message that they are incorrect. I have used the magellan triton 200 before and it worked very well. This is a new one and I can't get it to work.

SOURCE: Toggling between lat/long and grid references

I eventually solved the problem by firstly doing a restoration of default settings. This allowed me to toggle but it was between two different presentation styles of latitude and longitude. To restore the grid co-ordinates option I went to main menu, the Setup, then then toggled to location and re-selected UTM UPS as the location format.

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).

Mark a waypoint, and then edit the waypoint's co-ordinates. You can also create a waypoint in Mapsource and then transfer the waypoint(s).

SOURCE: TomTom One 3rd Edition - Latitute Longitude are Wrong

Are you sure that you have set the latitude and longitude units correctly? Under Preferences go to Set Units, press done until you come to latitudes and longitudes. You have three choices, Degrees in decimal form, Minutes, or Minutes and Seconds. Printed maps might use any of these forms of latitude and longitude. Avation maps are usually different than ground maps. Hiking maps also use either of the three forms.

SOURCE: Magellan GPS Pioneer will not hold onto satellite signal

I had the same problem. Found this link

http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=144134

As suggested at the end of the above thread I left my unit outside for a couple of hours and it suddenly sprang into life. Now it reliably gets a fix in 2 to 3 minutes when I switch it on.

My theory is that because it is only a 2 channel unit it takes hours to acquire a fix when the memory is blank.

The manual says it will keep it's memory for a month without batteries.

So if you leave the batteries out for more than a month, or move it more than 250 miles and then switch it on expect it to take a while to first fix.

Otherwise it's a nice little unit.

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.

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

Can my TomTom XXL 540-S be used with GPS coordinates?


If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination. This especially works fine in countries where the Avenue and street information is not available. Google maps can give you the latitude and longitude coordinates. You can fed those into the GPS and navigate. Please note, you will need the maps of the region involved. Click (Tap) on the main screen. Tap on: navigate to Tap on : arrow Tap on: Latitude longitude Enter latitude and longitude using keyboard, Latitude first and longitude next. Be careful while you do this and do not forget to enter the directions North, West etc.

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?

Downloading latitude and longitude


Do you want to enter them manually, or via USB?

To enter a location manually, using only GPS coordinates, try the following: Create any entry in your address book - it doesn't matter what you enter since you will be totally changing it anyway! Then 'edit' the address book entry that you just created, putting what you want in each data field. Finally, edit the GPS coordinates for this address book entry (note that you have to overwrite the whole entry, beginning with N, S, W, E and then the numbers). Save your changes and now you have an address book entry for that rig.

I do not know how to download this directly using the USB connection - sorry.
