Thanks uncluesteve, for helping Carlos and me out. That’s why it’s called the “mesh community.”
I don’t really use Pins and at first I couldn’t find how you did that, although I did find some old pins sent to me that showed the Lat/Lon. This is a good example of how you have to know what to ask for with software or it gets confusing for everyone sometimes.
How to do this is actually in the FAQ, so it’s also a reminder to read through that if you can’t find something on your own, as it may provide the answer or at least help you ask a question more likely to elicit an answer. In this case, it doesn’t say anything specifically that you will generate coordinates when you do create a Pin, but that’s what happens.
Sorry I wasn’t able to suss this out for you, but when. you started with the map needing the coordinates on it, I knew they weren’t there. I actually created my very first Pin to send. Note this is different than sharing your location (“Attach My Location”), which is strictly temporary. Even the seemingly obvious “Attach a Pin” doesn’t show you your current Lat/Lon. Rather you have to follow the FAQ instructions under “Maps & Location” as the answer to “How do I create and share a specific location (pin) on the map?” Follow that and the Lat/Lon comes up when it gives you the form to create a pin.
For the goTenna Staff,
Might want to capitalize “Pin” inside the parentheses in the answer to the FAQ question, as that will make that more obvious for everyone. It may also be good to note that this will send the exact Lat/Lon just for privacy awareness purposes. It’s one of those good options that you want to be fully aware of the possibilities when you do send it.
