Coordinate format

The Element uses the degrees decimal minutes format (dd° mm.mmm') as its default for GPS coordinates because it introduces fewer rounding errors. Selecting other formats may make your GPS less accurate, on the order of 20 metres. Follow the procedure above for changing units of measurement and select Coordinates. The Element supports these coordinate formats:

  • dd° mm.mmm' (default)
  • dd° mm' ss"
  • dd.ddddd°
  • UTM (coming soon in a firmware update)
