  • UTM displayed

    I like using UTM's I find them way easier. How can I get UTM displayed on the base camp map that I create around the borders of the map? I enjoy printing the map taking a hard copy with me when I hunt

    I don't believe that's possible.
    Currently own Drive 50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, Nuvi 1490LMT, Nuvi 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20, and use Basecamp, OSM mapping
    Previously owned Etrex Legend H, Mio Navman and used Mapsource

      Yes it is possible but the grid lines themselves are very faint. You will have to darken them yourself after printing.
      These are steps using Windows so Mac will be somewhat different.
      Start here : Edit > Options > Measurements > Position > Grid > UTM > Okay.
      Then : File > Print > Page Setup > Map Details > Check ON Grid > Okay > Print Preview should have UTM labeled around the edges with very faint dotted grid lines.

              Sorry I did get it after all. Too bad there wasn't a place you could go learn base camp. OR I could spend hours on it

                Try here http://www.newenglandriders.org/GPS/Learn_BaseCamp.htm

                It's aimed at Zumo owners but much of it is applicable to everyone.
