After conducting the GPS workshops this week and stamping out some ignorance, I found that there were a couple of things I needed to research. I have attached a file that explains what a Map Datum is (remember, we must set our GPS Map Datum to NAD83). Also, be sure the units on your GPS is set to hddd° mm' ss.s" (that is degrees, minutes, and seconds).
I am also linking to a website that you may find useful. Much information on the use of a GPS can be found here:
How to Use GPS Settings
Good luck!
