Eh? What do you mean? I dont really use google earth but I do know Google maps accepts both decimal lat and long which is by far the easiest to use and the degrees minutes and seconds format.

Click on Google Earth Pro in the menu at the top left of the screen. Click on Preferences then on 3D View. Go to show Lat/Long and select Decimal degrees. Click Apply at the bottom. Job done.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
