    Hi -

    My kids and I love to do geocaching. does anybody know if you can enter coordinates into the search field of maps on iphone and have it come up as a location?

    before you tell me to try it myself i am not sure how you enter coordinates (the format) so I don't know how to do such a thing.

    Anybody ?

    example:

    34 16 00N 119W

    Maps converted it to: 34.266667, -119.000000

    or

    34.xxxN 119.xxxW

    or
    +/-34.xxx +/-119.xxx (where + lat is N, and + long is E)
    edit: default is N or E, so you only need to add a minus (-) for south lat or west long
