Placing GPS Tracks on Scanned OS Maps
As a newbe to this forum I was looking for some help as I can't figure out how my copy of ExpertGPS is behaving as it is. I'm from Ireland of course & I've set up the particular preferences for the Ireland OS Map within preferences.
I have scanned part of an OS map, then calibrated it & finally have inserted my GPS track. The problem is that each time I try to do this the track is showing way off to the left of the actual scanned map. I have tried the same exercise with Google earth and it works perfectly there.
Is there something very simple like changing a setting that I'm missing. I have only recently purchased ExpertGPS and was looking forward to being able to use it on a weekly basis with my rambling group.
Can anyone help please and suggest a solution. Will be very grateful if someone can help at this time.
Also has anyone ever produced a user's guide even for an earlier version that would help me in learing this program?

This summit, at least on the approach from Glenbeg Lough, is characterised by the number of false summits that emerge as you gain height.
