    Find uses decimal degrees, way to use decimal mi

    Hi all,

    It's not life and death, I can do the translations quite easily on my own, but when I use "Find"->"Lat/Long" MapPoint require decimal degrees.

    Is there any way to change this so I can just input decimal minutes.M? Geocaching.com uses decimal minutes.M and I'd like to take the translation step out of the process.

    Thanks,
    Oy.

    Hi,

    No you cannot. Unless you can program then you could make a program that uses the mappoint component and this way you could automate the process you do.
