It is common now for automotive navigation system to be equipped with a digital map to facilitate us to find locations or points of interest swiftly with an address.
In case an address cannot be identified by the system, we also have another solution where we are allowed to enter GPS coordinates, which are latitude and longitude of a location, into the system to find a place.
You can easily get GPS coordinates of a location from Google Maps. In a web browser, point and right-click a place on Google Maps, click on "What's here?". It then tells you its address alongside GPS coordinates in decimal degrees.
Likewise in the Google Maps mobile app, just tap and hold a location until you see a red pin, then look in the search box at the top of the screen for its GPS coordinates on an Android device.
Besides using Google Maps, you can also head to this site Coordinate Converter in a browser, enter an address to convert to GPS coordinates, or even use its free Android mobile app GPS Coordinates to do more. It is particularly handy for use when you're on the move.
