Default A problem with locations...

I'm trying to put locations with lougitude and latitude coordinates, but i'm not able to specify if they are East or West.

By example, i'm entering 48.4216500 Lat 123.3682100 Long, wich is supposed to be righ in the city of Vistoria, Canada, but the automatic map bring me right in the center of china !!!

How can I specify if the Longitude is E or W ???

Had the same trouble showing my home town in the Netherlands and not in Ireland. However.... it seems that East of 0˚ is a postive number (+123.3682100 Long being in China), while West of 0˚ is in the negative form (-123.3682100 Long being in Victoria)
For Latitude, North of Equator is positive, South is negative

I've tried to add a minus sign before, but the site doesn't allow me to put other symboles than numbers and dot in this case... very strange...

It does, but the field is limited in length. So you might have to remove the last digit before you can enter the minus sign.

if i try to edit an existing file, even if i clear all the field, i can only put numbers in...

but i've noticed that when i'm creating a new file, i'.m allowed to put minus sign and letters...

very strange...
