    Do any bb gps/nav apps support this? Was amazed to see that Vodafone Sat Nav and BB Maps don't seem to?

    You can certainly do it by address, but not lat/long. At least I haven't seen it yet...

    Yeah, I want to enter lat/long - though this was a basic gps function?

    You can enter lat/long in Google Maps. No problem.

    I believe you can enter lat/long in BlackStar - check the gps subforum.

    In BB Maps, open the menu, choose Find Location, then click on Advanced.

    In the Address field, enter the coordinates in the form lat,lon

    Don't forget the negative sign for west longitude (or south latitude).

    Example: 34.123,-110.567

    Take the little "o" characters out.

    N25 42’ 40.56” E55 47’ 44.38” which is also equal to 25.708987,55.814685

    Before they came up with the 'advanced' button, you would have to send yourself an email with a specially crafted URL in it. In turn, the URL would launch BB Maps:

    http:// maps.BlackBerry.com?lat=XX.XXXX&lon=-YY.YYYYYY&z=2&label=LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Where
    x=latitude
    y=longitude
    L=your ownshort 'friendly' nickname for the waypoint.

    1 second of arc is 1/60 minute of arc
    1 minute of arc is 1/60 degree of arc

    N25 42 40.56

    40.56 sec / 60 sec/min = 0.6760 minutes
    Add that to the whole minutes and you get 42.676 minutes.

    42.676 minutes / 60 min/deg = 0.7113 deg
    Add that to the whole degrees and you get 25.7113 deg

    The longitude can be converted by the same calculations.

    Google Maps.

    Enter the first coordinates. Then right click on the spot and select "What's here?"
