GPS settings required for walking in Andalucia in the South of Spain.

I am often asked about GPS settings for this area by our guests. So I thought I would post the details:

First of all, it's important to purchase a map that gives you the positioning format and map datum.

For this region of Spain, the settings using Mapa Topografico Nacional de Espana
1: 25000 can be seen on the map below:

Correct settings for Units Setup

The maps we use at Pure High use a UTM grid  and a  European 1950 datum. We order our maps from Centro Nacional de Information Geografica (CNIG)
in Madrid

I hope this information will be helpful.
