Utm Distance Calculations

Recommended Posts

Your GPSr will calculate this. Change the coord system to UTM. Enter both Coords as waypoints. Go to the route create page and enter both waypoints. Highlight the second waypoint and it will give you the bearing and distance from first to second waypoints.


This can be done quickly and the advantage is that you do not need a computer, PDA, calculator and the waypoints can be anywhere.
