    I have several tour guide books that list GPS coordinates for various sightseeing features.

    Is there any way to enter these into Google Maps or Navigation as a destination? Is there an app that lets you do that?

    Enter the coordinates into Google Maps on your desktop machine. Save to My Maps.

    On your phone, open Google Maps. Then Menu > Layers > More Layers > My Maps. You can eliminate a step by enabling a Layer button on map via Google Map Labs.

    If you want to do it directly from your phone, you can probably just enter or search for the name of the destination.

    Does Google earth on the phone allow you to enter coordinates?
