Thanks so much that fixed the problem.  I have gone through the manual but 
didn't find much on what map datums are.  Does anyone have an explanation?  

Thanks again

Nick

Hi there,

Try this:

Change the map datum that you have set on the gps...  We have a Legend HCX and 
we do this by:  
1) go to "main menu" 
2)go to "Setup" 
3)go to "Units" 

4)make sure the map datum is WGS84.  

We tested downloading to the gps with a different datum chosen on it, and 
indeed it changes it for you from WGS84 to whatever you have setup on the GPS.

Hope this helps.

Hello all

I did get a GPS device and am a proud new owner of a etrex venture cx.  I have 
one question.  I have been downloading caches from the geocaching.com site but 
I have noticed that the coordinates displayed on the web page are a bit off 
after being downloaded to my device.  If the site says say n 44 13.968  my 
device may save that as n 44 13.972 after download.  Does anyone have and idea 
why this is happening?


thanks
