Yes, I know that.

What I want to do is this.

Let's say I'm on a multiplayer server where I cant see the enemy ground units on the F10 map and I'm circling around a group and looking at them with the TPOD. The TPOD will always show the coordinates where I'm looking and I want to enter those coordinates manually into the CAS page so I can then assign targets to the coordinates.

The problem I have now is that the TPOD shows the coordinates like N DD.MM.SSS but you can only enter N DD.MM.SS in the UFC. So how do I convert them so it will work?

Can JTAC send coordinates and info directly to the CAS page?

The TPOD shows DDM (degrees decimal minutes) but there isn't an easy way to enter it in the DCS AV-8B or with sufficient accuracy i.e. DD MM.MMM

IRL you can enter

• DDM (inc. thousandths of a minute / 6ft)
• DMS (inc. 10ths of a second / 10ft)
• UTM (10 digit / 1 meter)

... coordinates.

For Wolixe


you must convert decimal degrees to degrees minute second.
you can put this table in your kneeboard.
The result in the table is read directly.
For example, 0.5 minute corresponds to 30 seconds and 0.35 minute corresponds to 21 seconds.

or just multiply the decimal part to 60

don't forget to divide by 100


To convert 41° 12.40' --> 40x60/100 = 24" --> 41° 12' 24"
