The GPS device I have only displays co-ordinates in degrees, minutes and seconds which in inadequate for my mapping needs. Can anyone recommend an affordable portable device which will serve my needs? Any advice would be much appreciated. Ash

  • NMEA Interface Problem

    Using the eTrex H as a position input for other equiment is a failure. Somtimes it updates the interface every second (per the spec) but other times takes 5 seconds and my equipment gives a "No GPS" error. Garmin "Tech Support" offerd no explanation or solution. My old eTrax Legend worked fine, but not the 'H' Any ideas?
