I did not see this reply before my last posting.
I thought we would have to enter the data without the decimal point since
that is the way Loadstone handles it.
I have just tried this out and it works perfectly!
Just one thing: I found the decimal point by pressing the # key, but where
do I find the "-" key? In case you are wondering, I used the minus sign
generated by loadstone in the longitude field when the system offered the
"-180" before I entered the correct value.
All the best,

It sounds like you're entering an out of range value for one or both of the
coordinates. Latitude values go from -90 to 90 and longitude values go from
-180 to 180. These are decimal numbers, not the integers used in the
loadstone database. This means that you'll need the decimal (. character)
and if needed the minus (- character) when entering coordinate values.
