Map Coordinates to Nav 6

I can add the map coordinates from basecamp to my Nav6 but if I use a coordinates from my phone or a windows map its different and won't let me add it. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong.

Re: Map Coordinates to Nav 6

There are several different formats for Latitude / Longitude. If you want to enter a particular format into your GPS you need to set your GPS to accept that format or convert to the format that your GPS is currently set to before entering it. Without a NAV VI if front of me, I can't tell you where in the menus to go to change the format setting in your GPS, but it's there somewhere. Keep looking, you'll find it. Or, convert to the format the GPS is currently using before entering it.

Most common formats are these:

sexagesimal degree: degrees, minutes, and seconds : 40° 26′ 46″ N 79° 58′ 56″ W.
degrees and decimal minutes: 40° 26.767′ N 79° 58.933′ W.
decimal degrees: 40.446° N 79.982° W.

Just looked this up. It may help you in changing your Lat / Long format. This guy isn't using a NAV VI, but the menus are probably the same or very similar.
