    Clearing the Memory

    Before you start mapping a farm, you need to clear the GPS 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.
    Clearing Saved Waypoints

    When starting off it is a good idea to delete any waypoint that may be already saved in the GPS’s memory. You should have downloaded any points you have previously collected and wish to keep to your PC, as waypoints will not be recoverable after they have been deleted.
    1 (Oregon 200, 450 and 550, Dakota 10 and 20)
    To remove all waypoints:

    1. Touch the ‘Setup’ icon.
    2. Then touch the ‘Reset’ icon.
    3. Then touch the ‘Delete All Waypoints’ icon.
    4. Then when prompted select the ‘Yes’ icon to delete all the waypoints stored in the memory of the GPS unit.
    Clearing the Current Track Log

    To clear the current track log:

    1. Touch the ‘Setup’ icon.
    2. Then touch the ‘Reset’ icon.
    3. Then touch the ‘Clear Current Track’ icon.
    4. Then when prompted select the ‘Yes’ icon to delete the current track stored in the memory of the GPS unit.
    Setting the GPS Mode to Normal

    There are several modes your GPS can run under: ‘Normal’, ‘WAAS’, and ‘Demo’. It is important that you have the GPS set to ‘Normal’ while mapping, as this setting updates your location most frequently. If you are in a WAAS enabled area, you may set ‘WAAS’ on to achieve greater accuracy.
    To set your GPS to ‘Normal’ mode:

    1. Power on your GPS.
    2. Navigate to ‘Setup’.
    3. Press ‘System’.
    4. Make sure that it says ‘Normal’ beneath the ‘GPS’ heading (at the top). If it doesn’t, press ‘GPS’ and then select ‘Normal’.
    Turning the Track Log On or Off

    1. Touch the ‘Setup’ icon.
    2. Then touch ‘Tracks’.
    3. Then touch ‘Track Log’.
    4. Then select the ‘Record, Do Not Show’ or ‘Record, Show On Map’ icon to setup how you would like the track to be stored and displayed.
    Recording a Waypoint (Angle Post)

    1. While holding the GPS over the post, touch the ‘Mark Waypoint’ icon.
    2. Then touch the ‘Save’ icon. The waypoint numbers will increment automatically each time you save a new waypoint.
    3. If it is a special feature that you want to remember later on touch the ‘Save and Edit’ icon. This will allow you to edit the waypoint properties and enter an appropriate name for the waypoint.
    4. The waypoint is now recorded and you may proceed to the next angle in the fence line where you will repeat this process again.
    If you notice that the bars showing the GPS accuracy have a red cross through them the GPS will not record your point accurately.
    The ‘red cross’ means it could not lock onto any satellites. The easiest way to correct this is to turn the unit off then restart the unit once you are out in the field.
    Your GPS Set-up is complete! You may skip to Section 'Recording Points'.
