G'day All

When a pin is dropped on the screen, a Lat / Long co-ordinate in decimal degrees is returned,

Is it possible to change this to degrees, decimal minutes or degrees, minutes, seconds?

And / or is it also possible to have the result as a projected co-ordinate?

Thanks

Any progress on adding the above functionality / configuration option?

The only way I've seen to influence this is by changing the basemap in Collector to one using a different coordinate system - we use a basemap in British National Grid and Collector returns coordinates as X / Y pairs when using this basemap.

Hi Pete

Our area covers three zones, so we wouldn't run three copies of each cache.

I can get most users happy with Lat / Longs though they all want the co-ordinates displayed in anything but Decimal Degrees.

Degrees Decimal Minutes and / or Degrees Minutes Seconds are standard for other business areas we work with; ie aviation.
