    Info Garmin GPSMAP 62s and GPSMAP 78s Setup



    Clearing the Memory

    Before you start mapping a farm, you need to clear the GPS’s 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

    This will delete ALL waypoints from your GPS. 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.

    To remove all waypoints:

    Setting the 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.
    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).
    3. Navigate to ‘Setup’ and press ENTER.
    4. Press ENTER while the ‘System’ icon is highlighted.
    5. Make sure that it says ‘Normal’ beneath the ‘GPS’ heading (at the top). If it doesn’t, press ENTER while the ‘GPS’ heading is highlighted and then select ‘Normal’ and press ENTER again.
    6. Press PAGE or QUIT to exit the system menu.

    Recording a Waypoint (Angle Post)

    1. While holding the GPS over the post, press the Mark button.
    2. Press ENTER on ‘Done’. The waypoint numbers will increment automatically each time you save a new waypoint.
    3. Or if it is a special feature that you want to remember later on toggle to the icon name ie.001. Press the ENTER button and rename.
    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!
