  4. quote:Originally posted by The KGB: Ok under the main menu you go to the setup screen and there is an option marked North reference. My question is what should mine be set on and what do each mean with regards to navigation. 1)True 2)Magnetic 3)Grid 4)User What are the differences and definitions? Sorry for total newbie question http://img.Groundspeak.com/user/avatar/46113_400.jpg _The KGB_ http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.asp?A=46113 the differance between Magnetic and true North varys it depends where you are. Here in NM the differance is 11 deg. As far as getting to way point it dosn't matter what you have it on in the set up. The only difference that I can see is if you have the e-trac the arrow in the display will be off some. Not that you can tell the difference. Hope that helped KF5DM Ace

I would like to connect the meri-gold to my laptop. The laptop does not have a serial port but does have a usb port. I know they make a serial to usb converter/connector so I will be able to physically connect my gpsr to my laptop. My question is…. will the gpsr be recognized by map software like ExpertGPS if it’s not connected via a true serial/COM port? I don’t have ExpertGPS yet or the connector but after reading the ExpertGPS website, I think its looking for a serial/COM connection. I am sending an email to ExpertGPS support with this question, but I wanted to give you guys a chance to show off your technical side Anybody else run into this before? or able to shed some technical light on my dilemma? All theories and suggestions welcome. Thanks, mookie Hi mookie, I had the same problem. I bought a Compaq laptop and it does not have a serial port. After much look and reading I found out, you have to buy a docking station. I bought The mobility EasiDock usb 200. No the computer is not very portable. Hope that helps you. KF5DM
