    Garmin homeport problems

    Hoping someone can help
    I have been trying to enter waypoints into Homeport but when I push the create waypoint button it creates a waypoint with different co ordinates,, have checked the settings, they are on WGS84 and ddmm mmmm, is that right. Have just started using homeport but nothing seems to work right. I am using a G2 card is there something else out there that will let me insert waypoints.
    thankyou

    What did the waypoints come out of? At a guess the format is not the same.

    They came out of a Garmin 45DV , so it's all Garmin

    Perhaps check using same gps format, eg deg min secs rather than decimal minutes

    Crunchy,
    thankyou for your help, just changed the settings over as suggested but didn't help, still changed the entered numbers to something different

    Can you give us an exact example of what is occurring. I have had a look through the manual for the Garmin - can't find an example of the default configuration of the position formats. I recall a similar situation with the Bluechart software where it would change the last digit by one - in the real scheme of things it didn't matter but I never figured out why it did it.
