I used Carl Andren's service. He has calibrated numbers from the PC area, which is within reach of most of the spots of pensacola and destin. See www.andrengps.com. It's 30 bucks and well worth it. There's a lot of info if you dig about the conversions...

If it helps, I can give you numbers that he has converted for me, but that may double the error. Just lemme know.

Any information can help. If it doesn't, maybe it could help someone else who might read this. Thanks again.

Default You can't truly convert!

You guys are really wearing me out! The #'s won't convert!! Read up on it. This thread has had so much BS from boaters that think they have this figured out it sours my stomach! Most of the boaters that are attempting this are computer Guru's that think they can steal coordinates- but they don't realize the EARTH isn't round!! I sit back and listen and it amazes me that these people see stuff on their sonar and don't realize they are no where near the actual SPOT!! Administrator PLEASE find a NEW forum for these people to communicate!!!!! This has been old for so LONG!!!
