Hi,
I have a place stored as a favourite (using gps position) in my Go300 and a friend has asked me for the coordinates so he can find it too but I can't seem to to able to call up that info.
Could somebody tell me how I find that? Thanks.

This is a relatively easy one. Here's how you go about it:-

Tap Map screen
Tap right arrow
Tap Browse Map
Tap find
Tap POI

Use you knowledge of the address/town etc. to find you poi.

When you have the correct POI
Tap Select
POI should be shown on the browser map. The co-ordinates are at the bottom of the map picture. If they are not, Tap options and make sure the coordinates box is ticked. Then return to the map.

If you have ant further problems, shout up. Smile

TTFN

Thanks for that, when I tap the options there are only three boxes showing,

POI
Favourites
Names

Nothing for coordinates, how do I add that option. Thanks.

You need to upgrade the software on the device to get the Lat/ Long feature IIRC it was added with version 6 and newer software - Mike
