Post Garmin Etrex H Help
Hi can you please help a newbie.

I have just moved to Sydney form Scotland and having a little trouble with my Garmin Etrex H

I usually use British Grid Reference which I find the most accurate.

What I would like to know is what’s the Australian equivalent?

With Thanks Mr&Mrs H.
