Note: Only after completing step 3, your meter will use the pre-programmed satellite list for that particular part of the hemisphere (Eastern hemisphere or Western hemisphere). For example, if you are in the eastern hemisphere, by entering "E" in the "USER LONGITUDE" section of the meter, your meter will display pre-programmed satellite list available in the eastern hemisphere. If you are in the western hemisphere (North & South America) and enter "W" in the "USER LONGITUDE" section of the meter, your meter will display satellites available in the western hemisphere.
