Having a problem trying to entering a waypoint for a PPR airfield? Looks like the format is NDDMMSS WDDMMSS but I can only enter a waypoint as NDDMMSS.S and WDDMMSS.S - which 'previews' in what looks like the correct position but does not show up as an icon?

‌‌The position in the waypoint list as shown as the entered position but the location is shown as '7mi E KOXOD'

‌‌I‌ have tried entering the position as NDDMM.MM WDDMM.MM and the position is show as '8mi E KOXOD' - which appears to have been converted to DDMMSS.S but not correctly? The waypoint is then displayed, but I cannot plot a route to it so presumably it has to be marked as an airfield??

I‌ have searched for 'KOXOD' and this give a position but not 8 miles from the entered position!‌

Longitude values should have 3 digits to specify the degrees value (ie between 000 and 180). Thus the format should be WDDDMM.MM
