I've been having trouble with the Goto feature of Memory Map 5 on the PC and wonder if anyone here can help me. I've been looking at a site for standing stones and other tumuli and the site gives 8 character map references e.g. SY611904. I can see that MM5 will allow different types of references to be input but not this type. I know very little about map reading so if the answer is obvious, please forgive me.

Cheers

Memory Map can use the format you mention:
go to Mode/ Position format and make sure British National Grid is chosen
when entering your positions you have grid references that are only three figures long Memory Map expects 5 digits of precision. For your example SY611904 you should enter SY 61100 90400 (simply add two zeros after each bank of numbers) - Mike
