Using a latitude and longitude (coordinates) instead of an "Address" may be usful to hikers who are driving to a rural meeting place and using an in-car GPS receiver. For example, a trail may cross a rural road that has no specific city-type address. If the latitude and longitude are not provided, one may be able to determine the latitude and longitude using a resource such as Google Maps or Google Earth.
STEP 1: Select "Where to?"
STEP 2: Screen content may vary depending on settings.
If "Coordinates" does not appear on screen, select the down arrow (lower right).
STEP 3: Select "Coordinates".
STEP 4: Select the format you need. In this example, decimal-degrees has been selected.
Note: If you acquire the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of a destination from sources such as Google Earth, one may alter settings in Google Earth to provide coordinates in the degree, degree/minute and degree/minute/second formats.
STEP 5: Enter Coordinates and select "Next".
