How do I get coordinates from a favorite (TN765T)

2011-01-03, 15:17 PM

I tagged a location on the map by holding my finger on the ma for a few seconds. My question is, how do I get the coordinates of this location so I can share it with others? Manualy copying the data would be ok.

(If you interested in the back story, the location is the burial site of my wife's grandparents within a large cemetery. I would like to share the location with other family members so they can easily find it.)

Solved! See the solution

  My current cell phone doesn`t support this feature, but yours may.  When you go to "Favorites" and tap on that location that you have saved, and the screen pops up to give you the option to "Go!', if you scroll down on that pane, is the "Share" button highlighted for you?  If so, you can share that location that way.........but you might of already tried that........

Yes, my phone supports it, and yes I tried it.

It will only give coordinates of where you are, but when it comes to a favorite it only shared "[my name for location] unnamed ....." with no actual detail.

    I guess the only other option that comes to mind, at this point, is to possibly revisit that particular grave plot (if its not too far away) and open up your dashboard view, and phsyically wirte down the co-ordinates shown at that point in time (even though the "scroll down" icon may patially obstruct some of the numbers presented there.......

   Hopefully, others may have a better solution on how to accomplish this.....

I was hoping for a way to do this without revisiting the site.

I'm sure the device stores the data in some internal file. Anyone know what that file is and how to read it?

Solved: Using SciFi's skin (1/8/11 version), I can get coordinates from map explore mode.
