    Thanks TOLady. I checked the manual. Tghere a multiple options for NZ and each one depends on the mapping system you are using. There are many types. I was hoping to use my old maps, but it may be simplest to go to a new series using the international WSG system. Bit expensive though.



    Thanks for your help.

What do you need to know? Do you have the manual for your unit? If not, you can download one from the Garmin site for free. It shows all the options for your unit, and how to use them. There are no specific options for New Zealand.

    Glad you found the solution. The title of your post was so long that it ran off the page and I couldn't actually see what your specific problem was.
    All I could see was "Setting up the options for New Zeland. need to...", hence my generic answer.

I own the basic etrex GPS and there seems to be no time zone for wellington , Auckland or New zealand in the time zone menu to get get the New zealand time


Hi!
From your owner's manual: (Page 19)
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/eTrexH_OwnersManual.pdf

You can use the UTC offset field.
Simply select "other" for the time zone and enter your time offset (+12 hours) from UTC time.

Hope this helps!

We are trying to set up our Navigation options correctly on our Triton 500. How should we have them set up? We are in the USA, Idaho.


In the USA you would set: Lat/Long as Deg.min.sec or UTM .. Compass at True North and Datum at WGS84. This assumes that your maps were constructed at datum WGS84 which is current standard.

Apparent Datum shift but still selected to same datum.


If your software is less than v4.00 then download this update:

GPSMAP 76 Ver. 4.00 as of Nov 29, 2006

If that doesn't work it may be necessary to do a master reset.
