does anyone know if the mapsend topo-uk software can be made to search or display OS grid references? it seems to only use LAT/LON as a reference? whats the point of that if it is supposed to be OS enabled? magellan tell me that it can, but i have yet to discover this secret. it's very annoying. my sportrak color is set to OSGB/GRB36 and all waypoints are given as OS grid. when transfered to my PC the mapsend just reads them as LAT/LON. It begs the question, if the software can transpose OS grids to LON/LAT, why isn't it enabled to do it the opposite way? major flaw.

mystery solved, magellan have told me that topo-uk does not support OSGB coordinates or grid references. they did of course tell me it would, but have admitted error, fair enough, but it's still a clanger boys......
