A minor thing, but it has caused me a couple of headscratching moments in the past.

When you bring up the 'What's here' popup, the point touched is identified by Lat/Long in the decimal minutes fomat. This is carried through to the PLOG if the point is included in a route.

However, if you select the 'Create User Waypoint' option, the Lat/Long picker is presented in deg/min/sec format, and to see the decimal format one has to remember to touch the 'Type here instead' line. Any reason why the initial decimal format isn't carried through to the picker for consistency?

The above relates to iOS, but the situation is further confused on the Windows version, where the 'Right Click' popup dislays it to a precision of decimal minutes!

It should all be consistent with the selected format, though for input SkyDemon always accepts any of the supported formats. The one exception is the "friendly" wheel-type picker, which was always designed only to accept that format. We could do the work to make it support more formats, obviously, but we don't hear many people running into issues with it at the moment, so that hasn't risen to the level of actually scheduling development work.
