I wish to calibrate my Delorme pn40 to be as accurate as possible. How do I locate a benchmark near me and find the exact elevation of that benchmark?

Thanks in advance

If you notice on geocaching.com one of the choices on the left is "Find a Benchmark". You can put in your zip code and get a list of benchmarks in your area. If you can locate one it should have the altitude engraved on it. Sometimes the description has it too.

Hope this helps.

Thanks to both of you. I found a benchmark near my home and calibrated the unit.
