I have gone on Google Earth and identified several spots that I wanted to navigate to. I plugged the GPS coordinates from Google Earth in to my Garman. When I was on the water and attempted to navigate to those coordinates using the Garman, I was nowhere close. What am I doing wrong? An example is that I marked the opening for the Southeastern Louisiana Canal in to Barataria Bay. Google Earth has it at 29.15’56.31 N and 90.06’20.30 W. That is what I put in to my Garman. When I attempted to navigate to those coordiantes on the water, I was way off by more than a mile. Can you help me out?
