eTrex Vista HCX - manually inputting coordinates


Recommended Posts

I havent' been able to figure out how to manually input coordinates like this:


N** degrees **.***

W*** degrees **.***


I wanted to go to a particular cache nearby my work while on my lunch break. GSAK and all the cables were at home though, so I couldn't really do anything except manually input coords to find my way there.


Thanks :anitongue:

From the manual.....

page 24


To create a waypoint by manually entering its coordinates (lat/lon):

1 pressin and hold the THUMB STICK to access the Mark Waypoint page.

2 Highlight the location Field on the Mark Waypoint Page, press the THUMB STICK and enter the new coordinates using the numerical keyboard. Highlight and press "OK" when finished.
