Hi Dave,

You seem to have one of your cameras located 135 miles out into The North Sea off Grimsby Exclamation

Gatso: 3779 at 3.3469 53.4716 I think it should read -3.3469

There must be a POI black hole off Grimsby. A while back I started a list of Saab dealers by inputting the dealer post code into Autoroute and reading off the Lat/Long. In TTN3 the one in Grimsby has appeared out in the North Sea as well!

xda - if you plot the longitude with a minus sign as you suggest then that position puts you in the Irish Sea about 17 miles WNW of Liverpool. Mr. Green Mr. Green

Don't forget that if AutoRoute or any application says West then TomTom and a lot of apps will only read East, so you need to put the East as a Negative, so if it's showing 1.23456 then make sure it's -1.23456 if it's west of Meridian. If it's east of Meridian then it should be a positive.

Grimsby is definately west of Meridian unless you are along the south easterly point of Kings Road then it becomes East.

I've done a few using Autorote to get the Lat/Long but Autoroute position locator doesn't give you East as a - which needs to be put in for use with TT. Made that mistake myself.

Must admit I didn't check it, so the longitude for "GATSO 3779" is totally wrong.
