(Archived) EN changes latitude/longitude data. why? how to prevent?


Recommended Posts

hello,

here,

on the win-EN-client,

i'd like to manually add geo-cordinates to a note,

which i took from: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/wiki/Radioteleskop_Effelsberg

=> 50.525,6.883611 => Max-Planck-straße 28, 53902 Bad Münstereifel, Deutschland

every time, i enter those coordinates into EN, EN changes them to 50.525000,6.882800 but this are NOT the correct coordinates and EN opens google maps with WRONG coordinates.

=> 53902 Bad Münstereifel, Deutschland

2 questions:

1)

how to avoid that maybe intelligent behaviour of EN that changes my input to useless sh^H^Hcoordinates?

2)

what format do i need to enter? reading this, did not help, because getlatlon.com gives me cooridnates which are also changed by EN to another location.

When it comes to storing longitude and latitude accurately, the Evernote client is not ready for prime-time.

Unless you are using a GPS enabled mobile device to enter notes, I found the best solution is to not use Evernote to track locations.

well, i see this with many functions/features in EN...

quantity in features seems to be more saleable than quality in features.

its a pitty. and it sucks.

using EN now over a year, i still think, its a good tool, but using it wastes so much time to find workarounds and dirty tricks.
