Odd Question Re: GPS Coordinates in How do I...? Posted April 11, 2017 Thank you, I sure will! Much appreciated! So, I have been out of the loop on Geocaching for a few years and am getting back into it. I have my trusty Magellan hand-held GPS, which of course i know how to use pretty well. My problem is in actually getting to the general GPS location via my car's GPS (my car GPS is a fancy-shmancy Garmin). I try to put in the coordinates to get to the general location of geocache, but the car GPS has more spaces for numbers than the GPS coordinates posted have. for example, the geocaching coordinates will be something like, "W12.345" and my car gps has spaces for "W12.3456" - and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to just throw in an extra zero or what, or if that would totally throw it off. I know this is a dumb question with probably (hopefully) a very simple answer, LOL...but I'm severely directionally challenged even on the best of days so.. Thanks in advance, y'all! Many Magellan GPSrs default to "Decimal Degrees", which is different from the format used by Geocaching.com & Garmin. The coordinates on a cache page are "Degrees, Decimal Minutes". It can be kinda confusing. But you definitely can't just plug in some extra "zeroes" or whatever. You must convert the coordinates into a format that your GPSr wants. You can go here to perform some conversions, and see where it is on the map (so you know you're in the ballpark): http://boulter.com/gps/ Here I copied coordinates from a cache page of a cache you found (Are you from Georgia? Cool!): N 34° 06.162 W 084° 46.005 I pasted them into the "Enter Coordinates" box on the Boulter site and converted them into "Decimal Degrees" for a Magellan GPSr: Latitude: 34.1027 Longitude: -84.76675 Note that there is a minus sign in there, too. Those are the coords you enter into the Magellan. Well, I think they are . Give it a shot.
