Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

create a new waypoint

Recommended Posts


i want to create a new waypoint but i have porblems with the LAT/LON format. What format is this? For example i want to create a new waypoint at this coordinates:

41° 51′ 36″ N, 87° 36′ 31″ W. What coordinates do i have to insert in the LAT/LON field for this example?

I have read the step by step guide but i can't find what format this is.

I have looked at google for a calculator and get this result for the coordinates above:


N41 51 36 W87 36 31                  format changed:


41.860, 87.60861111                    Dez.-Grad  *1
N41 51.600 E087 36.517             Grad Min.  *2
N41° 51' 36" E087° 36' 31"          Grad Mn Sk *3
45T E 550514 N 4634411            UTM        *4
45TWG E 50514 N 34411            MGRS       *5

You are using the wrong numbers:

So in your case you can enter:

- 41° 51′ 36″ N / 87° 36′ 31″ W => 4151.4N/8736.3W

or after converting Degrees in Decimal

- 41° 51′ 36″ N (= 41.86) / 87° 36′ 31″ W (= -87.61) => 41.9N/87.6


You took the dec numbers and entered it like degree
