Those coordinates are in DD MM SS.SS

The GC does not do that coordinate.

The GC default setting is DD MM.MMM

Those coordinates you posted convert to N 35 06.036, W 117 02.800 in DD MM.MMM

So you can make a waypoint with those coordinates on the GC

Those coordinates seem to be in California north of Barstow if I did the conversion right.

 

A good free coordinate converter app for your computer is Fizzy Calc - http://www.fizzymagic.net/Geoc.....FizzyCalc/

It's easy to use and will look like this;

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

How do I enter the lat & long coordinates into my Magellan explorist GC?  we are going to Arizona and have the opportunity to prospect on a gold claim.  these are the coordinates as written from our clubs claims catalog, I am using the * as the degree mark:

35* 06' 2.14" N
117* 02' 48" W

Your help is greatly appreciated.
