Hi there...

i just wanna fix a little gps coordinates... the reason not changing position on map for no reason.

Cutting 2 or 3 decimals - what is the best (your opinion counts) ?

Any idea for fast decimal count or decimal cutting... ?

Thanks in advance

I'm not 100% sure what you are asking but I'm guessing you are referring to stationary drift? You can use
NumberFormat2(gps, 3, 5, 5, False)
Change 'gps' to the variable you have for either the lat or lon.
The 5,5 is the minimum and maximum number of decimal places. Using 5 is used by quite a few GPS trackers on the market. Anything less and the accuracy starts to diminish noticeably.
