It's finally here!
Click anywhere on the #newGoogleMaps to get the geographic coordinates of a place.
That's is good! Looks like you have to add the N & W to get basecamp to recognize the coords...
Hopefully this helps Turbo out with EPE.
Just tried the New Google by copying and pasting coordinates to Garmin BaseCamp FIND>LOCATE COORDINATES, the copy and paste function doesn't work like with Classic Google Map... What's Here
Changed the grid no results.
Doing research on couple forums...
Google uses the format:
37° 39.934', -78° 33.546'
BaseCamp uses the fomat:
N37° 39.934', W78° 33.546'
In Basecamp's preferences it shows using
Lat/Lon hddd° mm.mmm' which means you have to have the N and W without the + or - on the Longitude. All three of BaseCamps prefs require the N and E/W with the numbers. Which, in my opinion is wrong. Google's format i perfectly valid and Basecamp should accept it.
Edit: After searching through Google maps info, there is no way to make Google output hddd° mm.mmm'. Now if you manually paste Google's output to BaseCamp, then manually edit it to Add N and E/W and remove the +/- then it works.
Thanks...as you described...I tried all the combos and find the same as you did...
Think I post over on Garmin Development page this issue and see where it goes...
The Classic Google map with "What Here" and Garmin BaseCamp still works... guess I hang with Classic .
Yep, that's why I keep using Google Classic. I actually don't use Basecamp very much at all because of it's odd quirks. I use Delorme, (run windows in a virtual machine). It's a lot more intuitive and easier to use. Even Streets and Trips, (GASP!) works better than Basecamp.
Thank you for posting this. I really missed not having coordinates. I'm glad Google brought them back.
Great to know. Thanks!
I posted on the Garmin Development page and was acknowledged and said they have started a "case" for the request... See where this goes?
