W3.91084My new phone has GPS and the Route 66 navigation software. Great I think. I'll just pop in the coordinates and away I'll go. Not so easy as it turns out. Under the Search options there are the following:
- Free Text (enter some text and hope for the best)
- Nearby (i.e. close to where the gps detects I currently am
- History (a list of places I've searched for or been at recently
- Landmarks (places I've entered and saved)
- Contacts (people I have in my address book
I tried entering N52.85005 into both Free text and address, but to no avail.
I did a quick search on the internet, and just found postings from people saying that Route 66 didn't work with longitude and latitude inputs - you can send a longitude and latitude by selecting Send -> Cursor Position or Send -> GPS Position which displays the settings in a text message or other format.After a bit of playing around, I discovered that if you choose to add a Landmark, via the My Landmarks -> New Landmark -> Blank method you can enter the usual information - Name, Street, Zip code, City etc, and at the bottom, tucked out of the way is Latitude and Longitude. By entering the information in as a landmark, and saving it, I can then show this on the map and use it for navigation purposes. So, not a straightforward method - but it works!
