jwalker;

I think (not sure of that particular model), that you can select overlay data on one of the options screens. You should be able to select Lat/Lon from there, and superimpose it on the chart.

Look up Change Data Fields and Change Numbers at

Yeh, I looked for that but Lat/Long is not in the list of fields which can be displayed. It is like that on my 2010c and it is also a standard field on the satellite position page.

Page 9 of the manual shows how you can get it using the cursor position and you could mark a waypoint to find it but that's a hassle. I've played with the cursor and if the button is pressed just once and not held for any length of time, the cursor seems to appear at the current location.

Thanks anyway.

garmin 178c

Good morning,
I have 178c and i had the same problem trying to find the lat/lon position. Well, it is only works when you select large or huge data fields numbers. Look the note at the manual at page 31.

Well found Dimitris, I am using medium fields. I've just tried large and it is, indeed, available in the large size.
