Yes, just use the search box. You can type in the coordinates with degrees, minutes and seconds using symbols like this:
+40° 1' 2.00", -108° 1' 2.00"
Or, skip the symbols and it still understands:
+40 1 2.00, -108 1 2.00
Good tip too, Gary!
But what I tried to ask is how to get the coordinates from a point on map.
For example, I pick on google map the location of a bar and give the coordinates to this to my friend.
To do the opposite, first Control+Click on the map in the exact location you want and choose Center Map Here. Then click on the link button on the left, next to Get Directions, My Places and the Print button. If you don't see it, it may be because you collapsed the whole area to the left and need to open it by clicking the reveal triangle at the very upper left of the page.
Once you click the link button, look at the URL it provides closely. You'll see "ll= " followed by two numbers, longitude and latitude in decimal form.
I really appreciate all your video podcasts. Once you save a map location can you name it yourself with a location?
Depends what you mean. You can build your own maps with Google Maps and save them to your account, but others don't see that. Or, if you own a business or building you can submit information or corrections to Google too. Explore -- there is a lot you can do.
thanks for the Google maps Advanced tips very useful.
Really love your Mac Tips.
I think will be a good tip how to get the GPS coordinates.
Then the person can tip in the GPS to go to the place.
