GPS Coordinates

Postby QMaze » Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:47 pm

I am a bit confused with GPS coordinates. I was watching ATV Television on YouTube and they were at PAWS UP Resort in Montana. The coordinates on Googlemaps shows it's position as 46.915008,-113.430576, how does that translate on my Explorist? Mine are like this when you enter them, ex. 54° 44.xxxN / 113° 26.xxxW

How would enter the google ones? I did take the coords off the video and it put me in Alberta, Canada.

I think you have two difrent map Datums or position formats or both, you should be able to change both settings in your gps,
