    so i put in my maps into the Davies Chest.

    when you put them in you get a gump kinda like the BOD books.
    5 columns.
    Get / facet / Level / Coords / Status

    so i thought to myself, cool, it gives you the coordinates!
    so i put in a not decoded map.
    it says Unknown... k, makes sense.
    so i decode the map and put it back in.
    it dosnt give u the X and Y Lat and Long, it gives you the N and W numbers..... BUT..... it dosnt give you the MINUTES for it!
    so you cant use auto map to show you where you need to go.

    so whats the point of giving us half the coordinates?

    example.
    it gives you 64N 22W
    what you need for the map is 65'37S 22'16W

    OMG, i just realised that the numbers arnt even right in the Davies Chest.... its telling me i need to go to 64N and its 64S

    what the heck..... seems like a bit of a waste of that column.

    I think the coordinates column is there so that you have a general idea where the map is before you pull it out from the locker. They still want you to work from the map image to find the exact spot, and use mining to make it easier.

    The issue of it always saying "N" and "W" is a known bug and will be fixed in Publish 80.
