TxFilmMkr Posted September 4, 2003 Share Posted September 4, 2003 New user here. This may be an easy question but I've searched the forums for solutions and tried all I've found but I'm still having the same problem. I've got a Magellan Sportrak and downloaded local maps onto the unit for my area using MapSend Topo. When I'm driving or walking along, my position on the map doesn't match up to where I am physically. For instance, if I'm driving down a street and get to an intersection, according to the map, my unit says I'm abuot 150 feet from where I actually am. Even when I download the route from my unit to my computer, it mirrors what was on the unit, with the route being nowhere near where I actually went. Here's what I've tried. Leaving my unit on in an open area for a while, updating my unit's software to the newest version, and I've made sure the measurements are in Deg/Min.mmm and Datum is WGS84. Is this normal or should I be expecting more accuracy than 150-200 feet? Quote Link to comment
