Hi, I have come up against a bit of an issue and dont know how to resolve it. On following a trail and picking up Co-ords as I go along I find that if they are entered manually I am about 40km out. This also happens when I do it manually from the site, but if I open the LOC waypoint file in Easy GPS it gives different Co-ords to the same place and these are accurate. (Sending to my GPS is also ok). I hope this doesn't sound like the ramblings of a madman lol. Hope someone is able to help as I am at a complete loss.

Regards

First thing to check is the map datum and position format.
Setup menu > units - make sure they are set to WGS84 and hdd°mm.mmm
