Entering coordinates into an empty databaseHi:

I'm sorry but I still can't understand your question.

Cheers.

  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.
