ChrisDo a search on the subject of FMC Lat Lon inputs. There are several posts addressing the subject. I can't remember exactly but I think the format is N52W47 or 52N47W. Hope this helps you

Chris,Don't know what you mean by "converter". Go to search and use the keywords fmc,lat,lon,coordinates. you should get several hits. I know there are threads talking about entering lat,lon in the fmc.

Thanks Neil, i think i've managed it now, i was trying to input the seconds aswell, which i don't think you can so when just sticking to degrees and minutes it worked fine. Thanks All for your help. Chris.
