Display GPS coordinates in decimal mode

Hi all,

When I record GPS coordinates in the app they are displayed on the phone as degrees, minutes and seconds. Is there any way to display them in decimal format? In the case export, I see them as decimals so I don’t know why in the screen they’re shown in minutes+second mode.

Thanks!
Sabela

Sabela,

You can fetch the decimal versions of these values with the calculations in
the “Extracting GPS Components” section here:
