Default How do i get all the public spots loaded into my gps.

I have tons of private and public wreck sites but i dont know where to go to get a format to load them on my gps, the garmin i got on my new boat is not displaying a normal latitude and longitude. its not letting me plug in my numbers correctly. can i take it somewhere and have them plugged in? does anyone know someone that does this? i know it will have a fee and thats ok, its just annoying to pull out my navionics app on my phone that has 100s of spots and hope i have a signal 10 miles out that will allow me to see the spot and try and find it through my phone...any suggestions?

Is it just a setting that is giving you odd long and lat numbers? You might be able to change it.

We have an older GPS and I put all our numbers in manually one at a time.

Georges Electronics used to load numbers for a fee, not sure what you would call nominal.

Seems like you have loaded them, but they are not displaying correctly?

Might be a case of matching the GPS format of the machine (hours/minutes/seconds, decimal degrees, etc)
