Can you search by Lat and Longitude ?
Instead of place names .

Yep you can.

Drop a pin anywhere in Traveller then change the co- ords to the one your looking for & save it as private.

Remember what the wpt number was, hit the search button, find the wpt number, open it, then go to. Delete it when done should you wish. Make sure you have the appropriate filter enabled.

Sorry...didnt know we were talking about Traveller. There was no mention of it. Thought he was talking about Places...which is differnt (maybe).. Either way you certainly cant use the search function to find a place by coordinates...but making a waypoint is obviously a good workaround, though panning around your area of interest would work the same...and save a bit of typing

Cheers

Also..in Places you can import your own private "places" as a gpx file....which will then overlay on existing places on the map....so possibly another option....if in fact we are talking about Places on the webpage??

Edit: after a bit of reading I see that private places imported as gpx on thw Places webpage are accessible in EO Traveller..(if you have it)...so will work in both cases (i.e if looking on Places webpage or in Traveller ).

It always helps if we know what someone is searching in. Please specify which database you are using,

Google maps accepts co-ords, you could use that when commencing a search. put your co-ords in and then pick a name within the search area.

Ex

Good point

Never assume they say, which is what I did & it looks like we still don’t know if he was referring to Traveller or not.

Hi Graeme H8,

A little tip, it is better to fully explain what you are looking for when asking a question on this or any other forum for that matter. Not every one will know what you are talking about, and you may end up with an answer that is either incorrect, or just not what you expected.
