You CAN change the coordinate system on the 315, you may have
it set on degrees/minutes/seconds or degrees/minutes/mm
This is how you 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:
deg/min/mm
deg/min/mmm
deg/min/sec
then highlight "deg/min/mmm
then press "enter"
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
based)
Hope this helps,
