I’ve noticed that when changing the settings for the format of the coordinates, for example from DMS to DM, this does not transverse into the way you can search a location by the search function search by coordinates. This, in my opinion must be a bug.
The text entry field on the coordinates search can handle any of more than half a dozen coordinate formats! Please see our Help Manual for examples of some of the most common supported formats.
On the other hand, if you were referring to the DMS roller wheels input screen for coordinate search, then you can just leave Seconds at 0 and just set the Degrees and Minutes as desired. There is limited space and thus this wheel based input is not very suitable for inputing other coordinate formats. We could possibly add DM.mm format support as well if that seems useful?
I don’t know if all the other users, but I think DM.mm is one of the most common formats used. I use this app when Geocaching and in that community this seems to be the format of choice. But it’s a good thing that there is the alternative with text entry.
