How do I enter and save Longitude & Latitude locations that I am not actually standing at? I have the 64st unit. I found a screen called Location and entered a hump and now I can't find it anywhere

Google the model number and print out the owners manual.

Are you using a GPS to search for that missing C&R record?

I had issues inputting GPS Cords into my lowrance hand held unit... i actually had to convert(using an online converter) the GPS waypoints to a different format to input them manually.


Dont know if that is the case with yours but you may want to check the format you are using vs what the unit is expecting.

spots during elk

Thanks. What I was hoping for was just a way to enter the coordinates and save them? It is super simple when you are actually standing at the location! Jeremy and I saved about 30 spots during elk season. Really comes in handy at 5 am in the dark!

Anyone who hunts that hasn't bought the hunting maps software is really missing the boat!! When my buck died on private property I knew it was 10 yards off the public land! I was able to call the owner and get permission to access his property.

From Fish n Map CO.

That's probably the reason...From the first link..read down a bit and the poster explains that coordinates may differ depending upon which one of three methods are used for displaying the coordinates. Seems to say that your gps should allow you to choose between methods..

Or..as Ricky mentioned ...he used a converter.

This might help...Fishing Maps may display the same as Google Earth.

"For some reason Google Earth uses DD MM SS.S (degrees, minutes, and seconds to one decimal) for coordinates. This was the traditional way of showing latitude and longitude, I remember it when I first learned of these two concepts in upper elementary school in the late 70's.

But in the last decade or so, using DD.DDDDD (just degrees and the decimal) or more so DD MM.MMM (Degrees and minutes to the 3rd decimal) are more common. The latter is the official geocaching coordinate method and is usually the default way that most GPSrs show coordinates (though a GPS I used to own, the Galileo by the Whistler radar detector people, ONLY showed coords the Google Earth way; and it seems one of the two GPSr I now have, the Lowrance IWay 100M, ONLY shows it the geocaching way).

Most GPSr's nowadays have the ability to show coordinates in any of the 3 formats, so you could manually enter a waypoint the way it's shown on Google Earth, then ask the GPS to show it as DD MM.MMM format."

The second link could be helpful too...Say you pulled up Pueblo Reservoir in Google Earth..Reservoir was basically empty from just west of midway all the way to the inlet in 2004. Go back in time on Google Earth to 2004 and you can blow up the map and mark every bend and turn..point...rock..tree..channel etc..and or use tracks to track the edge of the channel..you could then insert those tracks and waypoints into your gps..

Not to de-rail the thread, but....... How do you go back in time on google earth?

Do you have to have the actual google earth app downloaded or can you do it from an internet browser?

I have google earth loaded on my computer...you'll see a clock on the toolbar. Click it and you'll get a slider on the screen...You're limited by when the satellite images were captured...but you can slide between images.

You can just create a waypoint where you are sitting right now and then just "edit waypoint". Edit the coords and name to the ones you want.
