How to Manually Enter GPS Coordinates

How to Manually Enter GPS Coordinates into Trimble Outdoors Navigator

A friend has shared GPS coordinates to a super-secret spot. With Trimble Outdoors Navigator, you can easily enter those coordinates in the app and be on your way in no time. Here’s how:

1. Launch the app on your device. Then select the Maps icon.

2. Hit the Mark button in the bottom right corner. Start a trip, if needed. Then select the Waypoint icon in the popup box.

3. In the Waypoint details box, you can edit the coordinate details with the GPS coordinates your friend shared.  Once done, hit Save. The waypoint has now been re-located to its new GPS position on the Map screen.


Tip: GPS coordinates come in several formats (Degree, Degree Minutes, Degree Minutes Seconds, UTM) and map datum settings (WGS84, NAD27). To change formats displayed in your app, go to the Main Menu and select the Settings icon. Scroll down to GPS Settings to change waypoint formats.
