Question about GPS

1 Answer

Just bought H20c. How do I set locations, like where I want to hunt when they are not near any waypoints? Also, I have to do this from a plane. Sorry if this is elementary, I am incredibly confused. Greg Frazier

    Thank you. I found that hitting the Enter key twice would add that location as a Waypoint.

You have to initiate a simulation where you must first have to set the waypoints and should make a mark on the specific locations. once your your locations was in there it will give you a beeping sound that you was on the exact point or the mark you have configure in your simulation.

How can I start using this?


1. Mount GPS in the vehicle using included hardware
2. Connect GPS to the vehicle's power source using included hardware (cigarette lighter)
3. Power on the GPS and Program personal preferences into the GPS unit
4. Demonstrate GPS functionality including how to find a point of interest, get directions, set-up a home location and save a destination
5. chose a suitable spot on the windscreen and Vacuum work area
to affix.


The basic GPS skills I suggest you first learn are:
1) how to set a waypoint of your current location;
2) how to enter the coordinates of a different location from a map or other reference source;
3) how to determine directions from your current location to another waypoint;
4) how to use the built in compass and altimeter;

Memory full, cant delete stored favourite destinations, sat nav turns off when delete is pressed.


Hello vinny!!

Perform a hard reset to clear all your memory!!!


Step 1. Turn your Nuvi unit off, remove any SD cards from the SD card slot and make sure that the unit is not plugged into any computer.
Step 2. Place a fingertip on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen and keep it there while turning the unit on, a prompt should read " Do you really want to start in maintenance mode?"
Step 3. Select the yes button.
Step 4. Enter your PIN if enabled.
Step 5. Main Maintenance Mode screen should have 4 selections:
System information
View Diagnostics
Clear User data
Clear Waypoints
Step 6. Choose "Clear Waypoints". After some time the unit should reboot.

If I get a new Lowrance GPS, can I use my SD card from my ifinder Hunt in the new device and use all my saved points?


First use "add gps" and add the original unit and the H20

use "receive from gps" to call in the original waypoint file from your sd card

use "send to gps" to save the new waypoint file to the sd card

remember that the original gps file may contain more waypoints than the H20 can hold so you may have to delete some waypoints from the file while in EasyGPS

if this is not clear enough, let me know and I will try again. I use the program all the time.
I just realized I left something out. EASYgps does not like the Lowrance HDS File version so an extra step is required if you are transferring files from an HDS to an IFinder. Save your HDS waypoints as Version 3 to the SD card and EASYgps will accept them

How do I save a new waypoint on my garmin 76cx?


Hi!

From your User's Manual Page 7:

You can create waypoints using three methods. Press the Enter/Mark key while at a location, create a waypoint on the Map page or you can manually enter lat/lon coordinates.

TO MARK YOUR CURRENT LOCATION
Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key until the Mark Waypoint page appears. A default three-digit name and symbol will be assigned to the new waypoint. To accept the waypoint with the default information, simply select OK.
To change any information, select the appropriate field and press ENTER to open the on-screen keypad. After entering and confirming the information you wish to use for the waypoint, select OK.

CREATING WAYPOINTS USING THE MAP
On the MAP page, use the ROCKER to move the pointer to the map item you wish to mark.
Press and QUICKLY release ENTER/MARK to capture the pointer location and open the information page for the map item.
Select SAVE. If there is no information for this point, a prompt will appear saying "No map information at this point. Do you want to create a user waypoint here?". Select YES.

If you require a User's Manual, you can view/download it from:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPSMAP76Cx_OwnersManual.pdf

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

How to reroute my desination i am looking for


From browsing the manual (page 20) for your Garmin nüvi 350, it looks like you will be able to do this by creating the route in MapSource, saving it as a GPX file, and then loading it to your nuvi on an SD flash memory card.

The Nuvi 350 doesn't support custom routes. You can create waypoints (or custom POIs) for each location and manually pick waypoints as you travel, but there is no way link all the points together into a route. While you can upload a GPX file to it, it won't contain the route, just waypoints. When you pick a waypoint and tell the 350 to take you there, it's going to calculate the route based on the settings (ie, vehicle type, shortest distance, etc). It won't follow a predetermined route.

How do you set waypoints on the Magellan Meridian gold. To and from a location?


Press and hold the GOTO button for 2 seconds. A "Mark" screen will appear. If you are saving your current location, highlight the "Save" at bottom of screen and press enter. This will save you current location. You can edit the name of the waypoint at this screen also. You can do this before you save the waypoint or you can go to Menu/Database/User/Waypoint (the one you want to edit)/Enter. At this screen you can edit the name by pressing the arrow up or down to get to the name field and press "enter" to get to the alphabet screen. If you are entering a waypoint using coordinates, do the above but edit the coordinates to the ones you want to use and then save.

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.

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.
