|Get GPS Coordinates from Google Maps|
Google Maps can give you the GPS coordinates for any location in the world. Simply type an address in the search field, or click anywhere on a map. Right-click the red marker indicating your position and select What's Here. Information about the location appears below the search field, including the GPS coordinates in DD notation.
|Now DD notation is not the correct format for the Gemini-2. We need what is called DMM or Degrees and Decimal minutes for entry into the hand controller. To convert from DD notation to use with the Gemini-2 use http://earthpoint.us/Convert.aspx Put in the coordinates you find and hit convert. The Degrees Minutes is what you would use. You can round up or down the decimal part of the minutes. Note Minutes is always from 0 to 60.|
