Question about Simrad GPS
My position shows that I am in London, England --- far from the coast of Maine where I really am! The C map checks out OK -- the strange position is given with or without the antenna connected. I think that I need to replace the connecting devices at the antenna. If that dos not work I guess I need to replace the MGL-3? Can I get one to work with the old set? Or, am I all wrong - and hopefully just need to set it all up again???? Thanks for your help!
Yes, you need to set it all up again. I would hazard a guess that the Map Datum is set wrong, you want a NAD which is North American Datum and NAD83 is the most recent. Next set you starting location. For Map Units I use the UTM coord System as it is in meters. You can use Lat/Long which many people find easier to use.Your hand held should be able to let you choose via State and then town. Then you can create detail maps on your computer and its best to remove your mem card and insert it into your card reader and save the map details to the card. You can connect your hand held to the PC via a USB cable, but this may be harder so save the detail maps to depending on your software.
Where I am located I get calls from miners who need to setup their hand held and then learn how to set way points so they can update their mining claims accurately. UTM makes this much more accurate due to it being in metric units.
