Format of coordinates: Degrees Minutes Seconds

Topic: Format of coordinates: Degrees Minutes Seconds

Hello,

In the user settings, in the Maps tab, it is currently possible to only choose between "Degrees" and "Degrees and Minutes", for the Format of coordinates.
The coordinates under the mouse cursor are very useful to some of our clients, but they need them to be in "Degrees, Minutes and Seconds". Can this be implemented and added as another option for the Format of coordinates?

Thank you.

Hello lucian.serb,

Why do you need this format of coordinates? How will you use it?
Could you give some use cases when this format of coordinates is useful?

Hello, shve,

Some of our clients use those coordinates by communicating them to the drivers, in order to help the driver reach a certain destination. Unfortunately some onboard navigational devices only support Degrees Minutes Seconds as the input format. So the current best option (Degrees Minutes) is unfortunately useless to them. Adding another option to the list would fix this problem.

Re: Format of coordinates: Degrees Minutes Seconds

shve, I agree with lucian.serb. Sometimes customers even ask another coordinates systems and it's not a big strugle for you to add them in Wialon as they are just some calculations.
