How to enter negative coordinates?

    I have an old Nuvi 650 with an Europe 2008 map on a SD card.

    I need to enter negative coordinates. When I go to the coordinates screen, the minus sign is grayed out and I cannot input it.

    What should I do?

    I'm not sure if the 650 has a choice of the coordinate format but it seems like you are trying to enter coordinates in the wrong format. My 1490 gives a choice of 3 formats, and 'grays out' unacceptable entries.

    When you tap Where to>Coordinates is there a Format button on the screen (mine's at the bottom)? If so try selecting a different one.

    And if you're entering coordinates for Montreal the longitude is negative, which is W, for West. In some formats on some devices you may be able to enter the W instead of the -.

    Thank you Tim. I was looking to enter coordinates for a location in France. I had not paid attention to the W box that is in front of the coordinates number. All is fine now
