cdmorten Posted February 19, 2007 Share Posted February 19, 2007 Hi, I'm in charge of a scout troop and we occasionally like to do an orienteering course using compasses. I'd like to make the course using my GPS but am not sure how. Typically I'll have about 12 waypoints on the compass course. For example, the first one might say head to 182 degrees south for 500 feet. I then leave a small marker for them so they know they're in the right spot, the next one will say go 160 degrees for 200 feet and so on. Is there a way that I can use my GPS to just walk to spot and then see what bearing and distance it was from the last point and can I do it in feet or yards? Mine seems to only show everything in miles. By the way, I have a Garmin eTrex Legend Cx. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
