Punching in waypoints??

 Hi guys. I've been given a few waypoints (lucky me) to try out when i get the chance.

Quick question.....for example if i was given the mark.

32.99.99  115.99.99

 

SHOULD i be punching in 32.99.990  115.99.990

Or 32.99.099  115.99.099

Yep probably a stupid question for most.

Thanks in advance guys.

 Nah it doesnt work like that. They need to be converted from 2 numbers to 3 numbers. There are various websites that have converters on them.

When you have the last digits of a lat/long in point blah blah blah it is a metric measurement. As bluedog has said you need to convert it to seconds if you are using degrees minutes seconds.
Hope this site helps out.

May be wrong

 May be wrong but I think you will find .99 will be a shortened .990 as if it was in seconds it would not be over.59.
