    Kindly tell me the name of the character after the 7 & before the 3.?
    When I'm typing in coordinates, I usually just tap the space bar once since I know of no other way to insert it.:)

    :) that's the symbol for degrees

    Cords are always degrees, minutes, seconds

    Rather than starting a 3rd thread, where on the pc/kb/?? do I find the degree key to enter on coordinates? I've been simply tapping the space bar once, which works. :)

    Enter without the symbol into the search, eg Los Angeles City Hall is @ 34.05371N 118.2434W
