    totally lost and can't figure it

    Hi there,

    I'm in Australia and have had a GPS for a while. Here's the problem. I have a scientific map and need to plot it into my GPS but the map doesn't make sense.

    MY GPS is set to WSG84 hddd mm.mmm

    The map I have reads:

    Universal Traverse Mercator Zone 56, Datum WSG84

    On the map itself, the coordines are:

    LEFT OF MAP between 6835000 and 6837000
    TOP OF MAP between 561000 and 563000

    What does this mean if translated to a South - East WSG84, hddd mm.mmm format?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Hi,

    I'm not sure I understand your problem, but you have to set your gps receiver to transmit in NMEA0183 format. I don't understand what you mean with the numbers.

    But do you use Mappoint?
    Anyway, you can use mappoint if you have converted the position in Latitude, Longitude of type double and Altitude of type int (I guess). I assume you talk about programming the Mappoint.
