+FisherMatt Posted October 22, 2005 Share Posted October 22, 2005 OK - First post here. Found my first cache with the Cub Scout Den last weekend. We had a great time. However, I would not have found it with my GPS. Thankfully, one of the other guys had a unit that was more accurate. I have a Magellan Meridian Platinum. It has always worked great relative to the waypoints it recorded, i.e., locating a place I have marked with the unit. I have always been suspect of its accuracy to published coordinates. For example, when I am traveling on a road that is mapped into the unit with the Map Send software, my track it always slightly off the road. My GPS was marking the location of the cache this weekend to be about 30 feet from where it was. I know how to calibrate the unit, and I had done so just before this trek. Any suggestions? Should I send the unit in for repair? Thanks, Matt Quote Link to comment
