Torres del Paine - GPS coordinates

The coordinates cover what is known in many guides as the "W" trek, plus a few more points along the trail to Administration and notable places near Lago Pehoe. You can download all the waypoints in the Garmin PCX format. The table below describes the location of each waypoint. The waypoints marked with (*) are unspecified locations within a place, and the waypoint without descriptions are more or less important points along trails. The elevation is in meters, and the latitude, longitude pairs are in a "hddd.dddddddd" (decimal division, no minutes or seconds) format using the WGS84 datum. I have taken great care to make the coordinates accurate by always acquiring a good lock on the satellites. If you find any of the waypoints grossly inaccurate, please let me know. And let me know if you have had success using them too.
