Search by coordinates?

How do I search for a place by coordinates in Nokia maps? I have the latest version 2.5.

The customer support says there multiple formats to use like:

  • N59.4071 E17.7782
  • 59,4071 17,7782

But neither of this works for me. The first one gives "No result found", the second one gives a hit on the street Carrera 59 in Colombia, on the other side of the earth. :smileyfrustrated:

Try, 59.(decimal point)4071,(comma) (space)17.(decimal point)7782 without the words in brackets.

 

 Those coordinates will take you to somewhere in Sweden near to a road called Hummelmoravagen.

Thanks for your help. I try also those formats, write it exaktly like that in search in Nokia Maps (not Nokia Drive), the connection is ok, but still it doesn't work. It's very, very strange.

I think I was able to recreate the problem and arrive at Carrera 59 using those coordinates. I searched for those coordinates whilst the map position was in another country (Sweden). Once I'd returned to my actual position (England) and searched again the correct results were displayed.

 

 

 

All the best.
