    Can someone explain how to transfer Google co-ordinates, e.g.
    44.801774,1.620196
    to Garmin co-ordinates, please?
    Our Garmin gives us a choice of
    H ddd.ddddd°
    H ddd° mm.mmmˈ or
    H ddd° mm ss.”
    :Confused:

    Yes, thanks, Roger

    I hadn't realised that this was the format, as the Garmin was asking for North, South, East or West and the number of digits was not the same, but I think that I have figured it out now. :Smile:
