Re: [gpsstash] utm versus lat/lon


G'Day Guys,

I use UTM, I have a Garmin GPS12XL, it's much easier than lon/lat, Melbourne's street directory uses UTM. I'm also in the Emergency services and we use maps which have UTM, so it's easier to pin point.

Yeah, I too think UTM is the way to go when using topo maps... WAY easier
to find where you are on the map then messing around with lat/lon.
