Hello:

 

A cacher suggested parking at N 41º 14.65 W 111º 55.95 It seems like I'm missing the last digit. How would these coordinates be different from N 41º 14.650 W 111º 55.950?

 

Thank you for your help.

No difference, .65 is the same as .650 you don't need the last zero. The only difference between the two is .65 would be pronounced 65 hundredths of a degree and .650 would be pronounced 650 thousands of a degree. Mathematically they would be the same.

Let's just say his GPSr may be "older" than yours. Most older ones display two to the right, most newer three to the right.

As DonB said, there is no difference in the numbers you provided.
