    Can someone please tell me how I can display Co-ordinate based addresses on my screen so that I can put my boat on the spot. i.e. I have coordinates for reefs etc for fishing and even though I dont want to navigate to the reef via the GPS, I would like to compare my position relative to the pre-entered coordinate. A friend can do this quite easily with his comparable Garmin GPS.

    Any advice appreciated

    Go to the screen that displays the satellite strength bars (touch the area that shows the bars on your main screen). Real time coordinates are displayed and are not locked to the base map (roads). Don’t forget to set up your coordinate display to match what ever you have collected from your map source (D/M/S, or D/M.MMM or Degrees Decimal).
    Stay dry!
