      Your GPS can display and use UTM coordinates if you change the setup menu.
      Check out http://www.dbartlet <http://www.dbartlett.com/> t.com/ for some
      info on UTM. IT's pretty simple. Instead of the world divided into deg. min.
      seconds it's divided into rectangles measured in meters.
