The detailed explanation can be found here - http://bivouac.com/PgxPg.asp?PgxId=210

The important for us is, that everybody has Grid Units (or Location Format) set to decimal degrees [hdddºmm.mmm’] to avoid misunderstandings. If your device is set to different units, you'll miss the location by several kilometers.

Off course Datum (or Map Datum) has to be WGS 84.

This setting is for Garmin devices or MapSource software. Other brands may have slightly different naming.
