Hi Bounty

You need to enter your lat/long in degrees Decimal, not degrees, minutes, seconds.

You can change Google Earth options to show that.

Or there's a converter here: http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html

Hope that helps

What's your position - what's the nearest town, you don't need to give your exact position if you don't want to.

Note to AirNav

This question comes up quite frequently. Could you add a note on the Preferences screen saying that the Lat/Long should be entered in degrees Decimal? It would help all new users.
