MetroGuide USA Error ?

Recommended Posts

Guest johnvale

I have an eMap which seems to be working fine. However there seems to be a

major discrepancy between the position data from the eMap and that shown on

the MetroGuide USA for the same location. I live in Marblehead, MA 01945.

The eMap locates my home correctly at N 42 29328, WO 70 51905. When I

locate my home on MetroGuide USA map the indicated position is N 42 48867,

WO 70 86521. That is quite a difference. If I plug the eMap coordinates for

my home in the MetroGuide map the indicated position is in the Atlantic

Ocean about 10 miles offshore. I have sent a note about this to Garmin tech

support but have not heard from them yet.


Has anyone out there had this problem?




Update: The problem is solved.

I posted the problem on the GSP New Group. Within minutes Peter Rathmann figured out that I was using two different "location formats". The eMap was set to "ddd.mm.mmmm" but the MetroGuide map was set to "ddd.ddddd"

Once I changed the map location format to "ddd.mm.mmmm" the problem was solved.
