Help with GO 500... what's my current location/GPS coordinates?

We broke down in Spain recently. The first thing the recovery company asked us for was our GPS coordinates. Afer much punching of menus on our TomTom 500 ... is there a way to find your current location and GPS (other than seeing your icon on the map). i.e. like the old 'help, where am I?' option on previous TomToms

    Menu-->Search-->select whole world-->scroll down to latitude/long.

    Click it. The values shown represent your current location.

    Brilliant, thank you. I'll give it a go. TomTom hid that one well!

    If this is true,than the result for current location is wrong for about 300m. What a rubbish!

    Hi

    GO 520... Pinch zooming in on the north up overview Map my cursor location looks spot on
    Make sure you have a GPS satellite lock on the device
