my etrex summit is giving incorrect coordinates
Hi,

If it's that the coordinates do not match your map it maybe that the map datum is set incorrectly - see page 46 of this manual for further details:

Let me know if that helps, if not I'll investigate further.

Best Regards,

Richard

map is correct coordinates seem to be locked

Hi Kieran,

If you don't mind losing your settings then it might be worth trying to default the System Settings:

System > Defaults (pg 55 of the manual)

Let me know if that helps, if not I'll investigate further.

Best Regards,

Richard



Hi Kieran,

Did that work, or do you require any further assistance?

If my information helped, a positive rating would be much appreciated.

Best Regards,

Richard
