I watched the how to video and understand where to enter a lat/long in Streets and Trips. However, it’s not accepting the coordinates that we given

 

For example the Escappee Boomers are planning some Florida boondocking locations. this winter  One of the locations coordinates states the following:

 

N26° 29.8529′; W81° 7.7740′

 

another example

 

N28° 7.8657′; W81° 1.2389′

 

How do you translate this into Streets and Trips. 

 

thanks so much,

 

Carol

Carol,

Check out this article I wrote a while back: https://geeksontour.com/2011/08…..and-trips/

I think it deals exactly with your issue.

I tried putting your first coordinates into Google Earth, then translating to decimal and got  Lat: 26.497533 Lon: -81.129567

Your second one  Lat:  28.131086 Lon: -81.020644

those should work in S&T
