    Hi
    @toneg

    If your GO Camper is one on the latest NAV4/5 (Wi-Fi) devices, that use MyPlaces and the MyDrive Web Route planner
    See the MDW Route planner... https://mydrive.tomtom.com

    Firstly... On the device Convert your Marked locations to MyPlaces
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> MyPlaces --> Marked locations... Tap on the Marked location & follow the on-screen instructions... edit or accept the offered name
    Repeat for the other Marked places
    Open the MDW Route planner & login with Email & Password
    Your new MyPlaces will sync to the MDW Route planner
    Go to your MyPlaces list
    Click on the required MyPlace... The Map will Zoom in with your MyPlace centred on the screen
    The the https:// link contains the Coordinates
    Note... If the newly synced Myplaces are no longer requires delete using the Tiny Trash Can Icon
    Note... Ignore the .16 at the end if refers to the present Zoom level of the MDW Route planner screen

    Tip... You can Copy & Paste the MDW Coordinates (Not the whole https:// link) to Google Maps

    Hi @toneg

    You cannot find out the Co-ords of the favourites or positions on the map using the GO Camper. The only position you can get the figures for are those for the GO Camper where its is when it is on. They are the 3 sample formats you see when you select Long/Lat.

    Hi
    @toneg

    Coordinates.....
    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
    Scroll down
    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
    Or
    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"
    Note... 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"
    _________________________________________________________________

    Also.....
    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

    021fa32a-9e95-483a-a598-114e5cae63e8.jpg(1)... Tapping the Black Pendant Icon opens the "(Unnamed location) Hurcott UK" Tap the blue "Drive Steering Wheel" icon to drive there
    Or
    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 Pendant Icon is in view... Go to bullet point (1)...

    If you Tap the dual function Icon (3Lines & 2Circles

    2ytgzd26585n.jpg

    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

    Hi @YamFazMan

    Thank you. I had never noticed that MyDrive on the PC will show me the Co-ords as you have shown above.

    Hi
    @DougLap

    When you click on a MyPlace in the list... The Map screen auto Zooms & Auto Centres

    I you want a Near as dammit Coordinate... For say a 'Stop' or a Point on the Map
    Have the MDW Route planner full screen
    Zoom the Map in to the require detail (Recommend Zoom level 16 (18 is Max Zoom)
    Left click on the Location and drag the location near as dammit to the Screen centre
    The the https:// link contains the Coordinates
    Note... Ignore the .16 at the end if refers to the present Zoom level of the MDW Route planner screen
    Tip... You can Copy & Paste the MDW Coordinates (Not the whole https:// link) to Google Maps for more info
