Google Earth co-ordinates vs Garmin
Maybe I missed the memo where everyone else seemed to know this - but the format for entering Long/Lat co-ordinates into Garmin is different from the format displayed by Google Earth.
This is not good. It's particularly not good in that the different format does NOT mean that what you enter gets rejected, oh no.... it means that it gets accepted but they point to a different place.
What a terrific feature! The sat nav device that you only need when you've no idea where you are going has the ability to accept exactly the precise numbers for long and lat that Google earth provides - but interprets them completely differently.
