Re: Strange problem

Dave Hadler

Your GPS is probably displaying magnetic bearing and the D700 displaying true bearing. Change your GPS to display TRUE unless your using it with a compass. If this is the problem then I suspect you have never used your GPS with a paper map to figure out where you are going:-)

I have finally hooked up my Garmin II+ to my rig earlier this week.
Everything works just perfectly except for a slight difference (20 degrees)
in the direction I am going (bearing). For example, when I'm coming home,
the bearing is 60 deg (east of course). On my TM-D700, it shows 40 degrees.
Everywhere I go, the TM-D700 will show 20 degrees less than my GPS.

I have tried to figure this on out but I can't. Has it happened to someone
else on the list ?

Also, this one is off topic but I thought I ask anyway. How do I get my
Garmin II+ to compensate for the daylight saving time ? I tried to find a
way in the menus but I didn't see it. I thought of changing my time zone but
it just doesn't seem the right solution. Any idea out there ?

Stay safe !
