Elevation?

Recommended Posts

Guest echosgold

Upon entering a wapoint into my Magellan 315 it asks for elevation. Since elevation is unknown, I have always set this to 0000. I am wondering if this is a necessary step?

Myn Garmin does the same thing, but I've never used it really. Perhaps it only comes in handy when you already know the elevation and so then the unit may take it into consideration when comparing your location to where it thinks the waypoint is (in relation to the sphere of error). Sorry if that was confusing.

Echo, do you mean like if you are at home and entering in waypoints for a weekend of geocaching? Or if you are out in the field and saving locations?

At anytime, upon entering a waypoint that I manually enter, it asks for elevation. I always change it to all zeros. I can run my own tests to see if this is necessary but just thought I would throw it out there to see what others do.
