I have not found it, but it would be nice if the current position could be displayed in UTM or Rijksdriehoek coordinates in stead of the standard WGS84. Preferably switched easily Very Happy 
Second to be able to enter WP's in other coordinates like UTM or Rijksdriehoek.
Will this be possible?

Hi;

You can select UTM coordinates or grid coordinates (if your map is using RD, you should see RD grid coordinates) in settings--units.

You can enter the wpt coordinates using lat7lon or UTM coordinates, but not other grids coordinates.

Hi Orux, I found UTM coordinates display now. All my maps are in wgs84 (openstreetmaps). when I change map datum to rijksdriehoek, I only get a deviation in the coordinates, not real rd coordinates. My idea is to be able to see my current location in Rijksdriehoek coordinates, specially for geocaching, independent from the datum of the map. Same for entering wp's. For geocaching I sometimes need to find a location based on rijksdriehoek. Now I have to calculate the wgs coordinates from Rijksdriehoek in another application and then copy this to Oruxmaps. It would be super to have this in Oruxmaps!
