etrex -using co-ordinates?
 
Hi,
i recently got an etrex,useful bit of kit,
but how do you? can you put gps co-ordinates in and then use the goto function?
what is the max distance it will work in this way?
thanks

What etrex did you get? There are several of them. The goto function works like this in the vista:

pick main menu

Click on the find. A screen will pop up with a list of waypoints, cities, favorates, and exits. Pick one of these

A menu will pop up that has two options: nearest and by name, pick one

A list will pop up. Pick one

The screen will show the coordinates of the place picked, the name etc. At the bottom are 3 choices, goto, map and ok. Click on goto. A compass with a pointer pointing to the waypoint will show up and show you the way. Also listed is course, speed, hr/min.

This is for the etrex vista, the others may be diffrent.
