I just bought a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx and have a few questions about position format/datums. Sorry for the annoying questions, there’s just some confusion I cant get around and its really getting to me.
I currently have it setup to use hddd mm.mmm WGS 84, but there’s different coordinate formats that just don’t add up when I try and enter them.
I have a few books with some places I’d like to see, but they use a format that looks like
The only format my GPS has that comes close looks like this when I enter it (im adding the zero obviously)
Is this the correct way to do it? How can I use this thing properly? Even when trying to use Google Earth, the coordinates are different and are missing just one number.
Example when using hddd mm’ss.s
But my GPS will say
(x is just a random number)
Help me understand please =\
