Garmin GPS 45

I have a Garmin GPS 45, which I have used primarily in Arizona. I am in California now, and the unit is giving me Arizona Coordinates and elevations. Do I need to reset, or initialize the unit for California, and how do I do this?

Thanks for your help!!

Switch-on while holding the MARK key, this performs a master reset and re-enter an initial position then leave it receive in full view of the sky (outside). This only needs to be done once, but deletes all user data.
The GPS can take 30 to 45 minutes to acquire.
It worked for me on GPS 45, twice.

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

How do i enter gps coordinates into my garmin etrex hc


Hi Jdriscoll38,

Since you probably have been using this device, you know it will automatically receive and lock in on the coordinates from at least three satellites if you move outside to a large cleared area, and power up. I could list all the steps to manually set all the coordinates, and that would take a couple of pages. Download the entire 56-page manual at this site, and refer to the pages below:

http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrex_OwnersManual.pdf

Go to the top of page 20 to change the Position Coordinates.

Right below those instructions, you'll see the info for changing the Elevation.

In case you don't have this manual, after download this, you should have all the instructions you need for all operations.

Let me know if I can help further. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I have a Garmin Nuvi 205W and have saved a number of places as favourites. However, when I want to share the location with friends by giving them the map coordinates of these places I cannot find how to...


To view the coordinates of a saved location on your nuvi

  1. Touch Tools (wrench icon)
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.

We are going to Europe and using Camping Cheques Brochure but the GPS Coordinates are as such L49degrees 0'10"1:2degrees56'28" but my Garmin Sat Nav Coordinates only give me a choice of N,S,E,or W can you...


I would suggest that you go to a web site that will take those co-ordinates that you have, enter them and then get or have the program show you the other co-ordinates that you need and can use, Also you may want to check in the sub menu on the gps unit, sometimes some of them have the ability to switch to different co-ordinate system, but this is sometimes, not always. Hope this helps

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

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.

If you know your coordinates, enter them on the position screen.

Use the track pad to highlight the coordinates on the position screen. Press "enter".  Use the track pad to change the digits to match your current position.  Place the GPS where it has a clear view of the sky and wait.  If you have a power cord, plug it in as it may take as much as half an hour.  Do not move the GPS while it is trying to acquire.  The antenna should be vertical.

If the GPS still doesn't acquire, it may have lost the satellite almanac data, which has changed since that unit was manufactured.  I could not find a software update on Garmin's website for that model, however, it is possible to transfer the almanac data from another garmin.  Post a follow up message here and I can give you more instructions if needed.

Plotting Waypoints


Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPS60_OwnersManual.pdf Garmin says; To manually enter in the coordinates for a waypoint on the 60 or 76 -series units, use the following steps: Press and hold the 'Mark' button. Use the up arrow to scroll up to the "Location" field and press 'Enter'. A new box pops up to enter in the new coordinates. Go to "OK" and press 'Enter'. Select "OK" at the bottom right corner to save all changes. Hope this helps :)
