    garmin edge hillwalking use??

    I was looking into the edge range probably the 305 for road riding/ mountain biking duties. I also want to use it as a back up when hillwalking just to find out my exact position, can they do this? I'm in the uk and use map grid reference compared to longitude/ latitude?

    Yes they can but it requires drilling down into the menu. But's it's easy and can be done quickly.

    On most Garmins, the satellite screen will give you your coordinates. I don't have the Edge 305 so I don't know the menu sequence you need to use to find it. If the coordinate system it is using by default (most likely a lat/long variation) doesn't appeal to you, you can change it by going into the settings and changing the coordinate system.

    which grid reference/coordinate system do you want to use?
