My name is Bob I am new to Geocaheing and having a ball. I have also got a friend interested as well, so much that he has just got himself a etrex camo, I have a 12xl.
My question is, if I load in a lat/lon into the gps using hddd.dddd format either manualy or via the computer it all goes in well but it tells me that a cache is 30km away where in fact I know it is only 4 km away.
On the other hand I load in utm from the same area, manually and via the computer and it tells me the cache is 4km, correct.
So why are the Lat/lon co-ords on cache sights wrong or am I using the wrong format or is there something else going on???
Can anyone help me please???
or via this forum.
