Displaying Longitude and Latitude in Different Formats

Post by pwfdmedic202 » Sat Apr 15, 2017 18:42

I've been researching this for a while, and still cannot find an answer:

GPS longitude and latitude is supported in DEG.MIN.SEC, DEG Min.XXXXX, and DEG.XXXXXXXX formats, but when I print them for my logbook, I can only get degrees, minutes, and seconds. I find no formatting options to change it to decimal formats.

Are there formatting codes to display Longitude and Latitude in different formats?

You can change the coordinate format in the dive site window:

Unfortunately it is not so easy when printing - there is not a simple setting to convert the coordinates for printing. Theoretically you can split and re-format the coordinates with the build-in report designer formulas, but this won't be easy. I'll see if I can adopt the coordinate format from the dive site dialog automatically during printing in a future update.

Kind regards,
