Hello.
For the coordinates give these a try:
latitude 49.2387800
longitude -123.0316100
radius 20 km
That will give you most of the lower mainland within a 20 km radius of the 
cnib. This could be quite a big file so depending on your phone memory 
situation you may want to reduce the radius.
When entering the latitude and longitude values the decimal and minus sign 
are needed.
