    is it me?

    we have just had alovely 6 weeks in Germany(Mosel) and France (Annecy) etc. However when I enter Long/Lat for a new site etc I find the location is miles away. Is it my sat nav neding updating etc or is there something wrong with the satelite etc

    Most likely explanation is inputting degrees:minutes:seconds when it expects decimal figures, or the reverse.

    Unlikely that either any of the satellites are wrong or your unit needs updating.

    I think the world has moved and you need to update with the galactic infrastructure police :thumb:

    Hi Gunner29

    Most SatNav systems work with three different ways of entering coordinates, but some only work with one, which sometimes can be changed in the settings.

    I dont know which way your SatNav works but below the three most common types:

    Degrees, minutes and seconds: 41° 24' 12.1674" -- 2° 10' 26.508"
    Degrees and decimal minutes: 41 24.2028 -- 2 10.4418
    Decimal degrees: 41.40338 -- 2.17403

    All three should bring you to the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

    Hope this helps

    Paul and Ineke
