+Team Ullium Posted September 20, 2004 Share Posted September 20, 2004 After reading the post on 999 calls and the discussion about the two formats of co-ords it brought to mind the following question which has been nagging at me! For quite some time now I have been downloading cache waypoints from the geocaching.com site in Lat. & Long format .... however just recently I had occasion to seek caches using OS co-ords and found that not only was my signal steadier but my accuracy was slightly better!! I always thought it wouldn't matter which type of co-ords I set my GPSr to ... but after my recent experience (which might just be a one off of course) I'm not so certain now! Most modern GPSr automatically set the datum for OS or Lat. & Long so perhaps the only the other variable might be the North referece...i.e. map or magnetic! Has anyone else experienced this? Or indeed have an opinion on which set of co-ords is best for geocaching in the UK ? Ullium. Quote Link to comment
