    GPS WAYPOINTS

    I have a Garmin Venture Handheld GPS... it is fairly accurate ~ 5-25 ft, depending on location of the subject satellites. Anyway, I also have MapPoint 2001, and when I enter in the waypoints from my GPS into MapPoint it places the pushpin off about 30 miles from the actual location's waypoint. What is going on? What am I doin wrong. Someone please help me.

    30 miles is a lot.. not sure if this could be it, but see what kind of lat/lon's your Garmin exports. MapPoint is expecting WGS 84.
