Default Entering lat/longs

What is the correct format for entering lat/longs? Trying to enter 3747n/11304w and it is showing up in China rather than sw US.

Thanks.

Allan -

lats/longs need to be entered as decimal figures. Western would have a negative sign, I think, which would bump it from Asia into the Americas ;)

You can use <A HREF="http://www.multimap.com/">multimap</A> as a reference; it outputs the coordinates exactly as they should be entered when managing your photo and for the U.S. you can search all the way down to street level.

Good luck -
Norbert
