Move a point feature to specific lat/long

I'm wondering if there is a way to move a point feature to a specifc lat/long location. I am aware of the "move" tool in the edit bar, but it's only relational - it moves the point a certain distance relative to where it is, and besides, the units are in "x and y" distances and I have no idea what grid that's referencing in terms of my map, nor even how to find out. If I try to move a point by (+1, +1), for example, then it moves it fully out of the county I'm working on. It's really quite annoying, not to mention time consuming to determine the proper location that a point should be in, and then have to mark said spot, pan back to the point and then zoom out, drag and drop and then zoom in for finer placement. I'm really hoping there is an easier way.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom
