And this make another example why osm is useless.

a friend give me this location.
i will use google, because there is no other variant that i can use without installing a server !!!!!!~!! Are you kidding me ?

453149.28N, 255918.94E

this is basic, not even basic, but elementary.

happy complaining that people prefer to use gm instead of osm.

Don`t make a google maps competition, but make the site usable at least.

now the only way to search for gps coordonates is with -43.34463743 and +23.43434343

What is that ? Who knows what is that ?

And who knows how to convert from 453149.28N, 255918.94E to that freakishness ?

I think you need to calm down a bit...

I hardly think decimal degrees are "freaky" especially compared to the degrees, minutes and seconds format.

Certainly this is in no way a "critical" issue - that would be something like "the web site isn't working".

This is now fixed, except that it doesn't recognise the unicode quote characters - with normal ' and " it works.

Thanks very much and sorry for the life or death scenario that i have put.

I hope this will not open the ticket again or something. Now is perfect :)
