TomTom Camper: degrees/minutes/seconds map references; cannot use

After typing in the above type of reference, there is no way (that I can see) of getting the location on a map. In other words, there's no (obvious) way of entering it. With DECIMAL, a place name comes up, which I can then enter. With degs/mins/secs, not so.

Help required, please.

    I do need help with this. Can anyone at TomTom please help me.? Many of my references in the sources I'm using are in degrees/minutes/seconds but with the TomTom CAMPER satnav these are not working.

    The latest NAV4 & NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices

    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
    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"

    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 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

    GO Camper the Route it has given me in Holmfirth is Crazy you can just get a car around this route and you would never get it towing a 8 metre Caravan.

    How do you report these crazy Routes It has told me in the Past to drive down a Bus only Route and I had to pay £32 Fine it told me to turn Right which is a one way the other way then didn't correct it.

    How can I tell them to change this and others ?
