Tap on the four dot Icon (....) (Bottom left screen)
Tap Search Icon
Tap (Top right on screen) Tap Whole map Note…… On some units (I think) it says Installed Maps
Tap Latitude Longitude Icon
By the way... When the device has a "GPS Satellite lock"
The Latitude and Longitude shown on the screen as an example is....
Live for your location
When inputting coordinates using DMS format, you can't enter seconds as a decimal point
Example N 50° 31' 10.62'' W 4° 1' 55.95''
But If you simply round up or down the second's entry in the example
I.e... The North decimal point to 11" and the West decimal point to 56"
It gives B3212 Sampford Spiney UK
If you tap the offered Sampford Spiney UK
The Map will open at the location
Tap the blue "Drive Steering Wheel" icon to drive there
Tap the 3Dot Icon and the Quick Menu will open with more options ie...
"Add to MyPlaces"
"Use as a starting Point"
"Search Near Here"
If you already have a route planned and want to add a coordinate location to the route, the 3Dot Icon Quick Menu will have an extra option...
"Add to Route"
Example inputting coordinates using GPS format, for example, If you enter N 52 23.488 W 2 12.501 it's a field in Worcestershire UK
In the text, the New GO range will display the coordinate location and underneath, offer the nearest road location as a destination, in this case, an (Unnamed location) Hurcott UK
(1)... Tapping the Black Pennant Icon
opens the "(Unnamed location) Hurcott UK" Tap the blue "Drive Steering Wheel" icon to drive there
Tap the 3Dot Quick menu for more options... See the above "Sampford Spinney" example for more info
(2)... Tapping the Globe coordinate Icon
only zooms the map into the Globe Icon (Tapping the Globe Icon on the Map does nothing)... Pinch zoom the map down until the Black Pennant Icon is in view... Go to bullet point (1)...
If you Tap the dual function Icon (3Lines & 2Circles
You can toggle between a Map and List view or tap the Keyboard Icon to return to the Coordinates menu screen
If you pinch-zoom the map screen, it will show the coordinate location on the Map
The GO will give you the coordinate location and will show it on the map,
but can only plan a route to the nearest road access point
Thanks Guy's, much appreciated.
