Finding co-ordinates


Hi, I'm a new member, living in Denmark. May I ask some help in finding accurate co-ordinates?

The problem that I have is that when I use Google Earh and pin point a posistion, note down the co-ordinates, and type them into my Garmin gps
I always end up with an error of several 100 yards.

If I retype the Google co-ordinates back into Google Earth it will fly me back to the correct posistion.

Maybe the gps can't interput the Google co-ordinates? I am using a Garmin Nuvi 860 and it allows different co-ordinate formats, but none seem to match Google's format exactly.

How do you find accurate posistions off the Internet?

Regards, Douglas
