i did send from computer to phone, but that navigator app might be the best option! thanks alot for all your help!

Edit: ugh, might be going to the outfitters store and get a handheld gps, navigator just shuts down everytime i enter coordinates. thanks though! hopefully someone comes out with such an app soon

In reply to the Original question of why lat/long can't be entered into Google Maps.
Google Maps needs the Lat/Long in decimal format NOT degrees/min/sec format.
Enter "lat, long"
Example: 43.204, -93.403

First convert degree/min/sec to decimal:
First hit in a Google Search of how to convert was the FCC site:
http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html
Then enter the result into the Google Maps search as:

43.45, -88.25

SW of Sheboygan right?
