How can I find a location using GPS coordinates in iPhone Maps?
To look up a specific location using your iPhone, only the latitude and longitude coordinates are needed. If you don't have an address for a place, you can enter the GPS coordinates directly into the Maps location and the location will be displayed.
- Open the Maps app.
- Tap Search at the bottom of the screen.
- Enter the latitude and longitude coordinates in the search bar.
- Coordinates can be in decimal degree format or degrees, minutes, seconds.
Here are examples of properly formatted coordinates:
44 35′25″n 104 42′55″w
After entering the coordinates into the Maps search field the app will drop a pin at your desired location and draw the surrounding area.
