Just save in the PC your "points" from Google Earthj as *.kmz or *.kml files then synchronize or transfer this files at Garmin via USB.

Hope helps.

Just bought a hydromax 16969. Want to know what the GMT hand is for?


Wondering how to find latitude and longitude coordinates? Welcome to WhatsMyGPS.com, an easy way to find the latitude and longitude location of any place on Earth! It's a great way to share your address, favourite locations, travel destinations, or Geocaching coordinates. You can also use WhatsMyGPS.com to get GPS location coordinates for your handheld or mobile GPS receiver. For Geography lovers, for hikers, for trivia, or just for fun, it's "Where in the World?" Greenwich Mean Time or Meridian Time has been a time standard since 1884. It was chosen because the Prime Meridian (the line of 0° Longitude) runs through Greenwich. Greenwich was a royal park and palace on a hill to the south of the River Thames east of London. In 1675 the great race to create accurate maps for navigators had begun and Charles II offered the land to The Royal Society for Britain's first national observatory. Christopher Wren was commissioned to designed the domed building and John Flamsteed was appointed Astronomer Royal. British mapmakers began to set Longitude from Greenwich and in 1884 it was adopted as the international meridian or starting point. Every 15° longitude represents one hour's difference in time: (24 x 15 = 360, the degrees of a circle). You can work out the time at every location on earth if you know how many degrees it is east or west of Greenwich. - See more at: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/what-is-gmt#sthash.BXqZe5oG.dpuf

What time is sunset today?


It depends on exact location coordinates.
You need latitude and longitude for your location
You can get coordinates by searching for your town on following link, or use google earth

Then search for 'sunset times' for your coordinates, or town.

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

Consistent error entering garmin etrex coordinate in google earth


Consistent errors are usually projection or datum related. If you are taking coordinates collected in one projection and displaying them in your GPS in another, you the points will offset. I'm not talking about the decimal degrees 00.000n 000.0000w vs 00 00 00N 00 00 00W. I'm talking about the geographic model to represent the surface of the earth. Google Earth generally uses a geographic projection with WGS 1984 or WGS84 Datum. Make sure you are using the same settings on your GPS.

I want to go Geocaching and I want to know how to enter Lat/Long or update my equipment to this?


well i'm a great geocacher and i love to help people with the GPS'rs
so you found the guy :))))
It may not be the easiest approach, but you could create a custom POI file for your Geocache locations and then load them into your c330 using POI Loader.

If you're a premium member on Geocaching.com, it's my understanding that you can download locations in GPX format. POI Loader is supposed to read GPX files, but I haven't tried it with geocache locations yet.

Do you have a geocaching account that can download GPX files?

Someone told me that you can use Long/Lat with Google Earth, and you can save Google Earth POI's in GARMIN .cvs format, to use in the PIO Loader.

How do I convert the gps coordinates from Google Earth?


In GoogleEarth, change your coordinates to decimal format. In your Lowrance GPS, change that format to decimal. You don't mention which Lowrance model so I can't find the online manual to tell you exactly how to do it.

Converting GPS coordinated to google earth coordinates


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.
