Assure that your unit is set to use WGS-84 and HDD(D)° MM.MMM Datum and Format

 

If you do not have a manual for the Triton 200, download it from HERE .

 

Page 20 directs you to the Navigation Settings.

 

Select (or check) the coordinate format with the drop-down option in COORDINATE SYSTEM; it should be as HDD(D)° MM.MMM, or simply listed as Decimal-Minute format. It can be written differently than HDD(D)° MM.MMM, the key to this is the format uses decimals of MINUTES (.... MM.MMM or MM.mmm), there should be no "S" anywhere in that format. Don't worry about use (or not) of the degree symbol (°).

 

Select or check that DATUM (also a drop-down selection) in use is WGS84 -- this is the important one that can really throw the location off.

 

These settings are universal anywhere in the world for use of data from the geocaching.com pages.
