I have a Meridian Platinum GPS, In the set up it comes to NMEA with the options of OFF, V1.5ape, V1.5xte, V2.1gsa, SO which one do I use?.............I know, I know, look up the instructions!, If I could find them I would.

No idea what difference it makes but I always went for V2.1gsa when I used a Magellan for moving map and had no issues

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

I also use V2 with my magellan. It only seems to matter when uploading waypoints etc to the magellan.

If you have DiscoverAus Streets & Tracks and can upload and "off" download (your a lot lucker than Iam if you can) you have to have the NMEA turned off. use an SD Card reader to Export (take from DA S&T) to GPS, have not worked out how to go the other way as yet, maybe it is of some help.

If you're using OziExplorer pick V2.1gsa.
If you're downloading waypoints from generic software, leave it off.

I also have the Meridian Platinum GPS and have the NMEA option turned OFF.

I output to OziExplorer, but also to Great Desert Tracks and sometimes Discover Aus at the same time. (via Franson GPSGate which shares the comm port with multiple applications)

Have never noticed a problem in having it Off.
