How do I enter a latitude and longitude waypoint?

To enter a latitude/longitude waypoint into ForeFlight, you can use the SEARCH WAYPOINT ID or ROUTE box on the MAPS page or the USER WAYPOINTS section on the MORE page. 

The following 4 formats are supported for entering coordinates within ForeFlight:

    DD.dd                 Decimal Degrees                  

    DD°MM’SS           Degrees, Minutes, Seconds   

    DD°MM’SSs         Degrees, Minutes, Seconds, Decimal Seconds  

    DD°MM.mm         Degree Minutes

Here are examples of these formats using this location:

     36°00'51.4"N / 75 40' 04.4"W

FORMAT             EQUIVALENT LAT/LONG VALUE     HOW IT IS ENTERED IN FOREFLIGHT
DD.dd 36.01°N/75.67°W   36.01N/75.67W
DD°MM’SS” 36°00'51"N/75°40'04"W 360051/-0754004
DD°MM’SSs” 36°00'51.4"N / 75°40'04.4"W  3600514/-07540044  
DD°MM.mm 36°00.86'N/75°40.07'   3600.86/-07540.07

To change the format displayed within the ForeFlight app, go to the MORE page and then tap on SETTINGS.  In the right-hand column, scroll to the Preferences section and select UNITS/TIME and then COORDINATES.  This will bring you to a page where you can select the format you prefer.  The following 3 formats are supported for displaying coordinates within ForeFlight:

    DD.dd                 Decimal Degrees                  

    DD°MM’SS           Degrees, Minutes, Seconds   

    DD°MM.mm         Degree Minutes

NOTES:

1. Latitude is always DD, and Longitude is always DDD.

2. Include a minus (-) sign for Longitudes that are west and Latitudes that are south.

3. After inputting into ForeFlight, the User Waypoint is stored in the DD.dd format.
