THIS INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO WILL SHOW HOW TO UTILIZE THE GPS GRIDS IN YOUR CCCMAPS ROAD ATLAS

How to use the Grid Overlay Pictured Above


You can print out your own grid overlay by downloading this page (link to pdf)


Cut out the Grid Overlay along the outer dashed lines. Fold the overlay in half along the solid black line and cut out the centre of the square. Place the Grid Overlay on a grid square to divide it into 10 equal parts. This will assist with accurately locating points on the map.

Determining the GPS Location on your CCCmaps GPS Compatible Road Atlas:




To determine the GPS location:


  1. Change the settings on your GPS unit from Latitude and Longitude to UTM (WGS84)
  2. The UTM grid is shown every 10,000 meters on the maps. Simply divide each grid square into ten sections and add 1,000 for each section (see illustration below) to determine the Easting and Northing.
  3. Enter the Easting and Northing into your GPS to have the GPS direct you to this location.
