    Default Different GPS coords and google not working. AARRGGGHHH

    Hi all.
    im trying to make a website with fishing coordinates / marks on.
    I have the google maps working and marks working.
    the only problem is the gps coords list i have.

    this is one of the lines
    ['25 8.676 152 49.966 f Spot Beacon Navigation beacon.', -25.1446, 152.832766666667, 3],

    im in Australia so its -25 .

    Ive tried different combinations and it shows else where, if i put the first coords in it shows inland somewhere google maps.
    if i use the other set of numbers it shows close to the mark but not the same as the first set.

    im sure the first set is datum wgs-84 and not sure about the other set?

    this is the input from my html script for the gps coords but not sure what thats using either ..

    ['loan 2', 33.923036, 151.259052, 'address 2'],
    ['loan 3', 34.028249, 151.157507, 'address 3'],
    ['loan 4', 33.80010128657071, 151.28747820854187, 'address 4'],
    ['loan 5', 33.950198, 151.259302, 'address 5']
    ];


    Can someone shed some light how i can get this working.
    Im importing the whole db into excel so i can change things easier but need to know what datum and layout of the numbers i need to get the markers working,
    thanks

    All I can see is you need to have Google Earth and your GPS set at the same co-ords Decimal Degrees "as it seems you have" or DMS or :the one I like is Degrees, Decimal Minutes and WG84.
    If you mix Co-ords a little the points will be way off and also maps refs ie WG84 if you use a mix of any the points go mad.
    Can't see a link/attachment? Don't post asking why. Just 'Like' the post & hit F5:

    As I understand your problem, the format you need it in is

    ['loan 2', 33.923036, 151.259052, 'address 2'],
    :

    and you're trying to use

    ['25 8.676 152 49.966 f Spot Beacon Navigation beacon.', -25.1446, 152.832766666667, 3],

    The red coord is DMS format and the green coord is Decimal. They are the same. So you want your script to contained

    ['loan 6', -25.1446, 152.832766666667, 'address 6']

    Do not PM me with questions. That's what a forum is for.
