Averaging still can reduce the some of the effect of a temporarily poor DOP.While averaging is going on you can move to the name field and enter the name you wish so that when you have achieved a stable FOM you want you can save the results.On some units it will automatically use the lowest available number but and on many others you can force the number sequence to continue from wherever you wish.To do this just name a waypoint from the number sequence.For example naming a waypoint to 001 explicitly will cause the next automatic number to be 002 unless this is in use.It will automatically increment until it finds an empty number.------------- /- __._FT - used with averaging to indicate FOM ------------- AVERAGE? Averaging will continue until you finally select save and enter.While averaging is going on the unit will display a FOM, figure of merit, number to indicate the probable accuracy of the average to this point.
The earliest units could save 250 waypoints while later models can store up to 500. In addition some units have additional waypoints that are stored in an internal database.Some folks assign a waypoint to a high number to force a block of numbers to be sequential for a particular use.Storing your present location is the usual way to record a waypoint.You may find other uses as well such as when your hat blows off you head driving down the road.If you want to save that location then you should rename it since it will be overridden by the next MOB sequence.
The waypoint screen from the G-12 family looks like: MARK POSITION ------------- Waypoint 001 . N 39 15.395' W121 02.166' - current position - not editable here.
