Re: Help!! GPS illiterate
Make sure WAAS is enabled.
Make sure your Map Datum is set to WGS 84
Distance is Statue
Position Formay is hddd°mm'ss.s"
Now this is only true is Latitude.
Every minute of latitude has 1850+/- meters, there 60 seconds in a minute. So every time the seconds change once you have gone 30.83 meters (1850/60=30.83). But your seconds is broken down into tenths, so when the tenths change once you have gone 3.08 meters or about 10 feet. (30.83/10=3.08)
This all theroetical in a perfect world which we do not live in. Our handhelds CAN NOT measure that accurate, it can get us close. When you have a GO TO fuction, for the first tenth of a mile it will measure in feet, after the first tenth it measure in tenth of mile up to a mile. So if you want to measure a 1000 yds. and get it accurate, you will have to do it in increments of 500 ft. Now remember this only true north and south.
Or use your Range finder.
