How to enter/find positions in google maps

Ive been trying out the my google maps, now I am curious as to how to enter the gps coordinates into the map.

I'm using the hddd.mm.mmm formate on my gps.

Is there a way to enter this directly or do I need my calculator?

Ugg, horrible start to this new hobby.

That is what I am not sure on setting, the actual settings themselfs.

Sorry for the confustion.

Re: Could somone help me with setting up a garmin H

Oh sorry, unclear post, is the "mils" the setting I need, I know how to actually set it, its just Ive never heard of mils before, is this correct?

Could somone help me with setting up a garmin H

I just need to set my degrees minutes seconds, or not set them as the case is.

I am using "mils" with "hdddmm.mm"

Is this correct? I just logged a DNF.

Re: Would ice cream containers be good for a geocache?

I could be a smart arse and put a cache at the local ship yards.

Cache note, bring your own crowbar, grinder or locksmith.

Re: Etrex H for $99

I bought one off ebay, 140 plus postage, if you have any questions, let me know.

Gave me an idea for a cool travel bug

I just got some travel bug dog tags in the mail, anyone have any cool ideas for a "adult" travel bug, extra points for something that will not go missing.
