I like the ability to track the coordinates of a flight. But what can you do with that data? Ideally, I’d love to be able to paste 4251N/7156W into a map web site and have that spot pinpointed. Is that possible? Otherwise, ‘4251N/7156W’ is just a bunch of letters and numbers.
Paste the lat/lon into Google Earth (free download).
Here’s the URL of the relevant G.E. ‘help’ topic:

We recently changed the way we store lat/lon internally and intend to work out a better mechanism to displaying them that is consistent with our new system and more valuable for users.
