This will store a special waypoint at your current location named MOB and will automatically start the navigation features of the unit to aid you in navigating back to that point.
The newest units permits 10 character names and these can include spaces.
The waypoint screen from the G-12 family looks like: MARK POSITION ------------- Waypoint 001 . N 39 15.395' W121 02.166' - current position - not editable here.
------------- Add to route number __ - You can add a new waypoint to a route here. If you are standing still you can click 'average' on the waypoint save screen and the Garmin will start taking readings to average with the one that was captured when you hit the MARK key.
A unique default name is assigned automatically but you can modify this name at your leisure without effecting the position data.
Finally you should hit "save" to store the waypoint in your database.
Garmin receivers have differing capabilities in the number of waypoints that they can save.
The earliest units could save 250 waypoints while later models can store up to 500. In addition some units have additional waypoints that are stored in an internal database.
The emap, 76 family, and etrex store waypoints in 3 dimensions by including altitude. The 76 family will also store depth data for water if an optional depth sensor is attached.
When you first create a new waypoint the unit will automatically assign it a name.
On the G-III family and emap you first save the waypoint and then you can average by selecting this option from the local menu on the waypoint display screen.
(Please see more information on averaging below.) If you are using dgps you can still average the position but the improvement will be much less since dgps is already more accurate.
You simply hit the MARK key, on the G-III, etrex, 76, and emap press and hold the ENTER key, and the waypoint entry form will appear.
