Canada and Netherlands - Same datum ?

Recommended Posts

I live in Canada and bought my GPS in Canada. I often go to Holland and would like to bring my GPS over. I do not have the maps for Europe. Do I leave the datum settings at WGS84 or do I change that? If yes, why?


I depends on what you want to do with your GPSr. If you want to go caching then you can leave the setting set to WGS84. If you plan on using a physical map on paper with your GPSr use must use the same datum on GPSr as on the map. Otherwise you will be lost. The datum used on the maps should be printed on the maps or at least the shop where you buy them should know.


Good Luck and welcome to Europe!
