I don't know how many other MapPoint users have been frustrated by the fact that MapPoint seems to make it very difficult to obtain Latitude and Longitude information for map objects, nor does it provide a simple and direct means for querying (or on/off control) of the Location Sensor tool when controlling MapPoint via automation or its ActiveX control.

It does, of course allow the user to SPECIFY the location of an object in lat/long. Why is the reverse not also true?

Regarding the Location Sensor tool, I would also strongly recommend that the format of the Lat/Long info displayed be user selectable between (as a minimum) degrees, degrees/minutes, and degrees/minutes/seconds.
