How to upload waypoints in Magellan eXplorist 510

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Magellan eXplorist 510 and took it out to do a multi-cache today. I found the first stage and attempted to enter the coordinates into the GPS as a waypoint so I could find the second stage. When I entered the coordinates and hit "Go," however, the GPS put the waypoint in the center of Lake Michigan (I'm going to guess that's not where the next coordinates are hidden). I tried inputting a few more waypoints later in the day and got the same issue.

 

My question is how to enter these coordinates into the GPS correctly. On the geocaching website, I notice that the coordinates are always N XX° XX.XXX W XXX° XX.XXX and on my GPS they are always XX.XXXXX° N XX.XXXXX° W. For example, N 43° 44.007' W 087° 47.579' on geocaching.com vs. 43.44007° N 87.47579° W on my GPS. Am I inputting them wrong? Is there a way to input coordinates other than waypoints? Any help anyone could provide would be incredibly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
