Re: [gpsstash] Digest Number 229

Hi! Adam!!
I think you can change the coordinate system on the 310, you may have
it set on degrees/minutes/seconds or degrees/minutes/mm
Try this and you may be able to reset it:
Turn the unit on:
press power, then "enter",
then press the menu button, then highlight "setup" with the shaded
cursor, then "enter",
then highlight "coord sys", then "enter",
then highlight "primary", then "enter",
then highlight "LAT/LON", then "enter",
then you should see three choices to highlight:
then highlight "deg/min/mmm
then press power off and then power up again and you should have it
reset to degrees minutes and tenths/hundredths of a second. (decimal
Hope this helps,
Bob B.
