I have generated a random point within a set area. I have done this using the Google Maps plugin layer. The CRS is set to WGS 84.
I want to get the co-ordinates for this point so I went into the attribute table and used the $X and $Y functions which gave me some numbers. I read these were in UTM so used an online converter to put them into lat long but they always end up being in the ocean somewhere.
All I want to do is to create a random point in QGIS, get the co-ordinates, save it as a GPX file which I have tried to do also, and then upload it into my Garmin GPS using the GPS Toolbox. When I save it as a GPX file it still never comes up in the upload to GPS dropdown box but I am not sure this would even matter as the co-ordinates never seem to be accurate.
