Default GPS Mapping Tool

Please Login to Remove!

I've searched forum. I am looking for a GPS tool that will allow me to map coordinates for points of interest. Anyone aware of any tools that might serve this purpose.

Both Google Maps and BB Maps can map coordinates. I find BB Maps fast. Instantly finding the location, then downloading the map around the found location which is centered. Google takes time before it finds the location and then starts downloading the map/satellite pictures around the centered found location. Google can take coordinates that are have degrees & minutes (and I guess seconds) too. BB Maps you have to first change the minutes and seconds to degrees first. Maybe that's why Google takes time - it will be converting the coordinates to a decimal value.
