    Ray,

    I think there is a small mistake in your coordinates as I assume that there should be no dot after 4500 in the Lat: 16.4500.59

    If I delete that second dot and set the GPS to ddd.dddddd (decimal degrees) the coordinates Lat 16.450050 and Long 102.817397 put me in Khon Kaen a bit north of the Khon Kaen University Kanchanaphisek Convention Center.

    My Zumo 450 doesn't seem to have that format the closest I can get is hddd.dddddd

    I end up with one more number then I have slots for.

    I have good directions from John just playing with the GPS

    Thanks Aukie
