Please assist me on how to set alarms to my Gps when i get close the destination i am heading to.


Hello,

to create a proximity alarm for one of your waypoints is a very simple process. First you will want to create a waypoint for you destination. Be sure to name the waypoint something that will remind you of the destination. After this is done go to your main menu by pressing the "menu" button 2 times. Navigate to the "proximity" icon select it by pressing "enter" it will now allow you to create a proximity alarm select the open space and press "enter" it will now give you a list of items you can use select "waypoint" using "enter" and pick the waypoint you created earlier. now all you will have do is select a radius for thee alarm. You can also use the other items to create your proximity alarm such as cites addresses and any other navigation category.

Hope this helps!

How do I save a new waypoint on my garmin 76cx?


Hi!

From your User's Manual Page 7:

You can create waypoints using three methods. Press the Enter/Mark key while at a location, create a waypoint on the Map page or you can manually enter lat/lon coordinates.

TO MARK YOUR CURRENT LOCATION
Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key until the Mark Waypoint page appears. A default three-digit name and symbol will be assigned to the new waypoint. To accept the waypoint with the default information, simply select OK.
To change any information, select the appropriate field and press ENTER to open the on-screen keypad. After entering and confirming the information you wish to use for the waypoint, select OK.

CREATING WAYPOINTS USING THE MAP
On the MAP page, use the ROCKER to move the pointer to the map item you wish to mark.
Press and QUICKLY release ENTER/MARK to capture the pointer location and open the information page for the map item.
Select SAVE. If there is no information for this point, a prompt will appear saying "No map information at this point. Do you want to create a user waypoint here?". Select YES.

If you require a User's Manual, you can view/download it from:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPSMAP76Cx_OwnersManual.pdf

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

How do you set waypoints on the Magellan Meridian gold. To and from a location?


Press and hold the GOTO button for 2 seconds. A "Mark" screen will appear. If you are saving your current location, highlight the "Save" at bottom of screen and press enter. This will save you current location. You can edit the name of the waypoint at this screen also. You can do this before you save the waypoint or you can go to Menu/Database/User/Waypoint (the one you want to edit)/Enter. At this screen you can edit the name by pressing the arrow up or down to get to the name field and press "enter" to get to the alphabet screen. If you are entering a waypoint using coordinates, do the above but edit the coordinates to the ones you want to use and then save.

Unable to load coordinates for a projected waypoint


There are two ways you can load a way point.

1. Hit mark on your GPS. Push up on your rocker until the coordinates are highlighted. Once they are hit enter. From here you can change the coordinates to what ever you want.

2. If you have the software (Mapsource Trip & Waypoint Manager) you can enter the waypoint by going to "Edit" then "New Waypoint" or hit Ctrl + W as a shortcut. Once you create all the points you need, plug in your GPS and turn it on, then click "Send to Device"

Make sure that your mapsource and GPS are both setup on the same datum and lat/lon style corrdinates as well or it could throw it off.

Setting a waypoint, I do not have the altitude and the lowrance will not enter the latitude and longitude, what do I do?


Assume an altitude of zero. It will have little effect on your accuracy even if you are above (or below) sea level. When you are near the waypoint the GPS will tell you the altitude and you can edit the waypoint then.
