Hi Analoguesat I when I said feeling thick I mean my brain is now fried
how do I do 1 decimal place for 54:1196 & -3:2254 also how do you enter _ before the 3 I dont realy mean to be a pain but if I lived in a tall building at the moment I think I would decend without the aid of the stairs.
Cheers Mike.

If you can enter W on the longitude you dont need the -ve sign
