Using Lat/Lon in Pocket Queries

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get the Lat/Lon section of a pocket query right. How do I enter my home location coords of:

Lat:36.551460

Lon:-082.550071

 

TIA

You need to enter it as degrees & decimal minutes (DD MM.MMM), not decimal degrees (DD.DDDDDD), as you used in your example.

 

You should enter it as N36 33.088 and W82 33.004

 

To get this, multiply the fractional part of the degrees by 60 to get the minutes. For example, your Lat was 36.551460: .551460 * 60 = 33.088
