Using GPS and Map and Compass together!
Like to make sure I have got it right any help, ideas would be great!
My GPs 62st and Map,Compass together going to set my GPS to UTM (find it easy to read off the map) set the gps to read map which is NAD27 Canada
Do I set the GPS to Magnetic has well! to match my compass?
If I use Garmin Basecamp software can it be set to NAD27?
So if I plot on the software then download to GPS it should be all the same?
And so if I plot waypoints, camping areas and so on the basecamp and then draw, mark onto on the map?
It should all work?
I think I have it all right did I miss anything?
This is all if my gps dies. I can carry on with my map and compass
