UTM data


Sunday, 29 March 2009

What can I use UTM data for?

1. Show the current location of your Series 60 GPS phone in several grid coordinates formats (UTM, MGRS, OSGB, IG, CH1903, Maidenhead, Deg-Min-Sec). Allows you to use your GPS phone to locate yourself on paper maps with these grids
2. Convert from a grid coordinate to the native phone coordinate format, and read and write to the phone landmark store. Allows you to use converted grid coordinates with navigation applications such as Google Maps and Nokia Maps
3. Show the distance and direction bearing from your location to a grid coordinate position. Enables you to use a magnetic compass to locate that position.
4. Use the integrated compass with sun and moon direction to navigate to a position
5. Import map images to see your location
