Got an answer to the following Walking/Hiking question?

Entering GPS Waypoints into a Garmin Etrex from Ordnance Survey Maps

Hi,

I have a handheld GPS eTrex Garmin (yellow) and also I have some old maps. Now, I want to get the coordinates from the map (lat-lon) and type them in my GPS and go there. I can't do it. I read so many articles about it on the web but still can't. It gets me somewhere else but not on that point. The problem is that I definitely read the map wrong and don't know what units to put under the settings of the GPS so the map and GPS match.

Please help...I can scan you the map and write you my GPS settings.

George
