I just tried it and it worked for me. Make sure you are typing coordinates that are within the extent of your mmpk and that you have a comma or a space between Latitude and Longitude.

Hi thanks for the assistance

I am using version 2.0.1.Probably there is a setting of which I couldnt find. I used -3,456 37,079

This is an area in East Africa. Searching this way fails but if i pin the same location it picks and navigates.

And if you use a point as a decimal sign, does that make a difference?

I think Xander nailed it, Navigator is not localizing the decimal separator properly for the locale your device is in. You will need to use the "." character as the decimal separator when using the DD notation in the search.

in short, 3.456, 37.079 should work.

Hope this helps,

Based on the version number you are using, it looks like you are on Android. There is a known bug with coordinate searches on Android.

Is this coordinate searches on Android navigator bug fixed yet? I still cannot do coordinate search in Android navigator in version 20.0.1. Do you have bug ID for it? Thanks.
