Mark a waypoint, and then edit the waypoint's co-ordinates. You can also create a waypoint in Mapsource and then transfer the waypoint(s).

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

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.

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.

ETrex Legend, GPS Coordinates from Google Earth Don't Match Basemap


Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?

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.
