idrive - lat/long?

Hi,

Is there a way to enter latitude & longitude for an address? Am i missing it in my current nav choices? I still need the latest update to 25.1.1.1 w/ POI does this version have it?

Thanks

No. Street address, city, POI, or ZIP code only.

"Current position" shows lat/long and elevation, but you can't enter lat/long for your destination.

Besides, if you goof and put in 0° 0' 0", 0° 0' 0", 0 you'll be wet when you get there.

I think you can enter a destination called map location, too, which could be done from lat/long data.

Hmm, interesting. I haven't run across that. However, I know you can pan through the map and select your destination with the cross-hairs. Is that what you're thinking of? It doesn't require knowledge of the lat/long.
