    Hello. Can anyone help me with this.

    Today I was at a construction site and refreshed my Bold 9900 gps location. So, as you can see by the image below, we have latitude and longitude:

    So how do I format those numbers to sit down at my desktop and have Google Maps point to that precise point?

    Thank you.

    Flip the N and the W to the end of the numbers, like this:

    49 12.3891 N, 123 10.2041 W

    Were you at the corner of Ferguson and McDonald? Interestingly 49 12.3891 N, 123 10.2041 W - Google Maps shows it as 5951 Ferguson Rd.

    And so it did..., THIS TIME. I swear, I tried with the ' at the end, with a hyphen, without a hyphen, with the N, the W, without both and pretty much every way I could think of, but this time it did work:

    49 12.3891' - 123 10.2041'

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    I was busy posting a reply when you wrote the above.

    Yes, I was at the corner of Ferguson and McDonald. I am not sure which address is correct, the one on my phone or the google map address.

    Again, thanks for your help.
