Thanks for this, as with the others noted for Admin POI to add to the next updates. 5621'9.16"N, 248'35.63"W . 5621'9.16"N, 248'35.63"W - Google Maps (http://goo.gl/maps/o0Qww)

Thanks

Also, after not knowing i have found out how to enter deg on the key board:

Hold down the "Alt" on your keyboard and type the numbers 0176 while you're holding down that key, when you release the Alt key the degrees symbol will appear like I've done here:

Most people seem to prefer decimal degrees now, rather than degrees,minutes,seconds, which are necessary for sea travel etc., but not for road use.
The conversion can be calculated quite simply but for anyone with a smart phone or tablet there is an app, "DMS Converter" which is very easy to use; it is not necessary to enter symbols as it formats automatically.

Thanks for this. This would probably explain why simply pasting into Google maps from my PC dint work for some entries without changing the Deg Symbol . It was only after messing around for a while i managed to get the POI submitted for some of the entries to work . I use Google to verify as much as possible before it becomes part of the POI file by ADMIN POI. So please excuse the interrogation ;)

Regards

Another useful water tap is located on the wall at the garage and camping accesories stores in Benderloch. Nice guy who owns it and the shop is an aladdins cave of very useful stuff for the van. Please as always ask before using it.
