Enter coordinates on an Android Geocache App

Recommended Posts

What's the correct format for entering the coordinates on an Android Geocache APP? I was doing a multi step cache where I had to answer questions to obtain the coordinates. When I entered the coordinates it would put me miles away.

Top "add a waypoint"  like a stage in a multi...  

Scroll down, tap Waypoints.

Tap the + symbol.

Enter the coordinates for your waypoint

Enter “Degrees Minutes.Decimal Minutes”.  The format will be along the lines of what you see on a cache description, and the solution typically will look very similar.  Something like

N 33° 27.020 W 084° 27.111

 

But with a Multi-cache, exactly what to add to what, that’s not always clear.  You may ask the cache owner.

I am probably being a bit pedantic here but I would describe the format as "Degrees Decimal Minutes".   The "minutes" portion of the coordinates are a value for minutes, expressed as a decimal number (e.g 27.020)
