Hi all,

I have a question regarding the Nuvi 760 GPS.

Am I right in assuming that you cant change the co ordinates from Long/Lat to UTM readings. I have read the book from cover to cover and can only find reference to Long/Lat not UTM.

Maybe I am not reading the right section.

G'day Barry

I understand that the nuvi 760 is not able to display UTM UPS grid reference system. Pity, if it did I'd probably buy one.

Regards

Jeff

Hi Barry

When I purchased my Nuvi 760 I was most disappointed to find it would not show UTM.

Western 4Wdriver shows the coordinates in UTM along with most DEC maps.

I did a bit of home work on the Nuvi before I purchased it but did not think for a moment it would not have UTM, having previoiusly had an Etrex.

I approached Garmin and asked for an explanation as I was not to happy. The answer was bad luck, horses for courses, if I wanted a Garmin to show UTM I had to purchase another model Garmin.

So there you have it, traps for new players.

There are programs that can swap UTM to Lat/lon but it is a bit of mucking about.
