Your GPS is probably displaying magnetic bearing and the D700 displayingWell, as many of you have pointed out, it was definitely the magnetic
bearing that was at fault. Actually, it was me who was at fault 8-))). And
as Dave also pointed out, I have never used my GPS with a paper map to
figure out where I was going. I did attend a compass & map class 15 years
ago but I really never had the chance to use what I had learn at the time.
After setting my GPS to show True North, everything is working as expected.
Now, if only I could find my way back to that road I saw a while back, I
could probably get home in time for supper !!! LOL
As always, thanks for your help and stay safe !
