I have a Garmin Vista .... I take some waypoints in South island download to a *.GPX file or excel
but tried importing the points into Google Earth? and all points seem about 50m out by SE direction?
I have been told ? that its because Google Earth sattilite pics works on WGS84 and not on the kiwi way???
How do i convert coords to WGS84 to import into google earth to make sence? or is there something else amiss?
How accurate do you guys think the Garmin Vista is ?? it never gets less than 5m Accuracy it states but how real is that and any tips to get Max Accuracy?
any Help much appriciated

So if I upload the original waypoints into the GPS and adjust it to WSG84 the download the *.GPX file this should be correct ? is that what you are say BaldEd?? ...or are you saying i have to take the readings again with the GPS in WSG84 mode then download the new *.gpx file?? ( this is prob not possible)
