    New Garmin GPS60 series Setup



    Set GPS mode to normal

    There are several modes your GPS can run under: Normal, Battery Saver, GPS Off and Demo. It is important that you have the GPS set to "Normal" while mapping, as this setting updates your location most frequently, and your points will be more accurate than in Battery Saver mode.

    To set your GPS to normal mode:

    1. Power on your GPS
    2. Press MENU to get to the main menu screen (you may need to press MENU twice to quickly get to the menu screen)

    6. Press PAGE or QUIT to exit the system menu.

    Clearing the Memory

    Before you start mapping a farm, you need to clear the GPSs memory. This means that no previously saved track logs or waypoints will be loaded onto your computer, which could be confusing when it comes to drawing your fields.

    Clear entire memory


    The easiest way to get started is to clear the entire memory at once:
    1. Press the PAGE button until the trip computer page shows up (the page that shows your speed, elevation, odometer, etc)
    2. Press MENU
    3. With "Reset" highlighted, pres ENTR
    4. Using the rocker pad, navigate to "Select All" then press ENTR
    5. Using the rocker pad, navigate down to "Apply" then press ENTR
    6. Select "OK" then press ENTR.
    7. The memory is now clear and you can go straight to section 3 "Recording points"

    Recording Waypoints (or angle post)

    Important note:
    If you notice that the GPS is “Searching the Sky” or has located less than 3 satellites, the GPS will not triangulate your location or record your point accurately.
    1.While holding the GPS over the post, push the MARK Button.
    (Tip: we recommend that you hold the GPS over the post for several seconds before touching the MARK Button which will give a more accurate position.)
    2.Then select OK to save. The waypoint numbers will increment automatically each time you save a new waypoint.
    Or if it is a special feature that you want to remember later on toggle to the icon name ie.001. Select the ‘Enter’ button and rename.
