Hallo,

I would be glad if someone could tell me what I did wrong here:
- I created with OruxMaps a waypoint at my current GPS-position (using Google Maps online map)
N 52°30,344' E 13°20,115'
- I converted the position from format D°M.M' into D.D°
52,5057333 13,3352500
- I entered the coordinates into Google Maps using a browser:
http://maps.google.de/?q=52.5057333+13.3352500

-> the position in Google Maps is about 200m in south/east direction away from the position in OruxMaps

In the Units section of the OruxMaps-Preferences dialog I have selected minutes 00°00.000'.

Any help is appreciated. zano

Such errors are usually caused by different datums used for maps.

How could I check or verify this? As I use Google Maps in both cases I think there should be no problems.

Thanks, zano
