Just tried out using the dms coordinates and i noticed when you go and do a waypoint edit in the GCS the text field for the coordinate isn't quite wide enough to fit all the text in. Thats just a little thing
Also is it possible to add dms compatibility for the home position in the flight plan?

Thanks Pascal... It is very appreciated

available in the CVS head. There is now a "WGS84_dms" entry in the option of the coordinates menu (top-left of the map and in the waypoint box). The syntax is

  lat_deg lat_min lat_sec N|S long_deg long_min long_sec E|W

where *deg and *_min are integers and *_sec are floats. Optional ' (quote) and " (double quote) can be added to min and sec. The ascii prefix is WGS84_dms. So for example, you can run the gcs with the following option:

  sw/ground_segment/cockpit/gcs  -center "WGS84_dms 41 12 34.5 N 1 23 45.6 E"

Heavy tests are welcome ...

I was wondering if there was someone (maybe Pascal?) who might add the option to use minutes degrees and seconds into the gcs and flight plan for waypoint locations. I ask this due to the fact that at our competition a couple weeks back we had to do all the conversions to decidegrees by hand and this definitely was a pain. ------------------------------------------------------------------------
