I’m heading out on a trip along the Oregon coast very soon and have been trying to make sure my GPS can find all of the hotels we’ve booked. The problem is that many of them are just addresses along the highway. That’s probably fine, but I know that, for instance, in Big Sur, there are addresses like “100 Highway 1” that won’t work at all.
Coordinates, however, are supported by my GPS. But google maps does not convert the indicated address location into coordinates. Or at least it doesn’t do so in an obvious way.
It turns out that if you select the link option after mapping a place, embedded in that link are the coordinates, though they aren’t formatted correctly and will likely need a bit of testing to make sure they’re right. Rather frustrating and I think a bad feature to omit, but I guess I should be happy there is a workaround at all.
More google thoughts later…
