saw this.
 
My question was dealing with how the website they recommend getting
coordinates from.

Lui:
 
As taken from the manual:
 
Understanding Latitude and Longitude comes in handy while using navigational
equipment such as Loadstone. Suppose somebody gives you the coordinates of a
supermarket as follows:
Lat.: 88.5432 and Long.: -98.1234, you would remember to put on a coat,
because this shop appears to be located almost on the Northpole!

Note:  long is always prefaced by the Minus.

 
 
Cheers.

Greetings: 

Yes in deed, I am brand new to loadstone and the world of GPS.  So, I'll
apologise in advance for cluttering peoples inboxes with what is probably an
easy question.

I was working my way through the manual last night and after successfully
installing the application on my phone I went to enter coordinates into the
database as described in the manual.   

The multimap website gave me 2 sets of coordinates for latitude and
longitude as shown below: 
Lat: 45:58:03N 
(45.96744) 
 Lon: 66:36:39W 
(-66.61071) 

Not being the most clever person ever to use a cell phone or computer, I
tried entering the first set of coordinates, only to find that there was no
colon on the keypad.  Then, I tried to enter the coordinates in parenthesis.
Both times, the text fields were prepopulated with other digits .  

I have to admit, I was exploring the various menus and functions and my
guess is that some how I created a database unwittingly.

My question is this:  only the coordinates in parenthesis should be entered;
yes? 

If entering a new point into the database the fields shouldn't be already
populated right? 

Thanks in advance.
