Lat is shown as a 6 digit string (and Long as 7).  Clearly the first two are degrees, and looking at the way they change I assume the format is (d)dd mm ss, but I can't find any confirmation of this in the documentation.  Am I right?  Pity if so, because the G1000 accepts waypoint inputs in the format dd mm.mm.

If I am right, is there a way of persuading SD to display minutes and decimals?    Not that I can't do conversions, but you get lazy as you get older  . . .

From the 'Setup' menu choose 'Change Units' and select 'Degrees, Minutes' under position.

Excellent, thank you very much.  Except that I can't find a Setup Menu!  Is it missing from the Light version, or am I just a potential Specsavers customer?

The Light version does not have support changing of units.
