GPS Datum Austria
I used WGS 84 in Austria and downloaded waypoints to Google Earth when I got home - agreement was excellent. The best maps to use are the free 'Walking Maps' that you get from the local tourist offices. Freytag & Berndt 1:25000 maps reference WGS 84 and have a table of GPS points + descriptions of walks. The trick on alpine tracks is to follow the paint marks not always the 'obvious track'. When in Austria do some hut to hut walks and treat yourself to kaiserschmarren! Staying in an alpine hut adds a new dimension to the hills. Enjoy.
