  1. Hi all.

    Very shortly going to be off to Iraq and am looking to take a GPS with me. What i need to know though is.....

    When you get issued your maps in Iraq what units are they in? I.e is it just an average Grid Reference like a Uk OS map.

    What postion format does my GPS need to set to in order to use the units on the issued map? I.e in the Uk you set your Gps to british grid, in Germany its set to German grid. Obviously Lat and Long is a worldwide format but is not really any use to anyone.

    Any information on this would be greatly apriciated. :D
