GPS Waypoint Lists - These files contain the location of peaks in either UTM coordinates or Latitude and Longitude. They are compatible with the free Waypoint+ program and can be uploaded to your Garmin GPS. Read these notes about accuracy and datums. Save these as a text file.
U.S.A. Waypoint Lists - Locations are in UTM and eastings and northings in meters using NAD27.
Note: I am gradually converting these files to a .gpx format which is more useful. The free program EasyGPS
can be use to load the files into most GPS receivers. The older Waypoint+ program has not been updated
and cannot handle a transfer using a USB port which most newer GPS units have.

Foreign Waypoint Lists - Locations are in Latitude and Longitude in WGS 84 datum. After loading the list into your GPS receiver, change to a local grid and datum to match the maps you are using. For example for the Munro List change to the British Grid and to Ord Srvy GB datum. The display will change to the British Grid system and positions will agree with the Ordnance Survey maps you will most likely be using. The Mexico, Baja List has UTM coordinates in NAD27. The Norway Top 100 List has points in UTM using WGS84 datum. Thanks to Petter Bjorstad of Bergen, Norway for letting me post this data. Petter has done a lot of work compiling data on peaks in Norway and has a very useful website: http://www.ii.uib.no/~petter/mountains.html
