Probably a stupid question but if I have the following coordinates - GPS: Latitude 33° 44′ 34.08"S Longitude 150° 10′ 43.32"E - How do I put them into the VMS app through the FIND PLACE - COORDINATES section?

When I type them in (choosing South for Latitude and East for Longitude) it shows a different location on the map.

Can you please advise if the data should just be entered as shown above? as for the Latitude coordinates the degrees symbol is at the end of the numbers in VMS but at the front above.

Cheers!

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Here's how to do it.

    1. Use the latest version (3.0.4), here's how to check.
    2. Those coordinates you've provided are in Degrees Minutes Seconds format. Go to settings and change the Coordinate format to DMS. By default, the app is in Decimal Degrees format (D).

    So in the future, when you get a lat/lon coordinate, make sure you are also using the same format in the app.
