SOURCE: Have problems with the loading of the map XPC415S. Australia East coast. Will this map work with this unit?

The GPSMAP 420S will only work with g2 maps in Australia. I tried all and then was advised by Garmin.

SOURCE: the coordinates that I get are 30 metres off from the other GPS units that we geocache with. My settings must be off.

Yes, have you enabled WAAS on your 60CSx? WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, according to the instruction manual an FAA funded service to improve overall integrity of the GPS signal through North America.

If you are in an area which is not serviced by ground stations, having WAAS enabled may degrade the signal from the GPS satellites. Try enabling or disabling this feature.

To do so, acess the System Startup Page. On the Setup Menu page, highlight the System icon and press Enter. WAAS is the second available setting on this page.

Make sure your batteries are fresh; I prefer alkalines in this model. Set the battery type in the System Setup Page, same page as noted for WAAS above.

Another thought is to be sure you have the latest Garmin software installed. Visit their site to download the latest and greatest, free, of course.

Have a garmin 62s loaded with the garmin upper midwest anglers fishing guide sd card. IT is enabled but won't appear on the screen of my unit?


You may have a bad SD Card. Put the SD Card in a computer card reader and see if there are any data files on the SD Card. The SD Card may be blank or have corrupted files. Or the card might have just died.

Just got my husband a casio pro trek sgw100-1 - we calibrated the compass but east and west are switched - north and south are fine - any ideas? thx


As a pure shot in the dark, are you sure that you calibrated it so that it was pointing to the north when it should be and not to south?

If it was pointing south instead of north, then East and West would be reversed.

Sounds a bit daft but better than the directions of east and west changing?

Check your calibration perhaps?

How do i insert a negative (-) deg co-ordinate into my nuvi 200


Positive Lat Lon coordinates are for the eastern and northern hemispheres respectively. If you have a negative coordinate, they indicate a location in the western or southern hemisphere.

To enter a Latitude coordinate of, for example, -31 degrees, you would enter 31 degrees, but specify S (for South) rather than N (for North)

Negative Lon coordinates would use W (for West) instead of E (for East)

Gps coordinates


I was looking for a list of car gps's that had the ability of going to a location via coordinates alone. I have searched the internet a whole lot and nobody addresses the question. Even the makers (garmin; tomtom; ect) on their web sites don't give you much infor about what I want to do.

Thanks for trying.
