    GPS coords difference

    Hi all,
    when entering these coords into (for example) MapQuest:

    51,05097 N
    3,36368 E

    I get a (?correct address)

    When entering the same coords in MP2004, I get an address some 15 miles away.
    What's causing this? Who can help me out.
    As far as I know, MP uses WGS84, and so do the devices giving me the original coords.

    Any suggestions?

    James

    Look at this thread - It might help. There is a link from Eric that looks good.
