    I take it you want doing it with Google Maps :)
    Use this format for to put the coordinates in the search window of Maps:
    loc:12.3456789,12.3456789

    I need it to access geobeagle to get lat and long readings. Also for c:geo and Geobeagle.

    I see, geocaching. But I'm not familiar with this, sorry.

    I know, you didn't ask how to input the coordinates. But if you want it to do some day ... I corrected the format in my first answer.

    Without "loc:" in front of the coordinates, Google Maps would show in the map the road/address next to the coordinates.
    With "loc:" Maps will show the exact point in the map.
    It's important when you are in the "wilderness" :)

    loc:12.3456789,12.3456789
    The same would do
    12.3456789,12.3456789(MyPlace)

    Doesn't Latitude need N or S somewhere in the entry?
    Same way Longitude needs a minus sign west of Greenwich.

    I have to specify N for astronomical purposes.

    As I know, with a decimal input there is no need for an additional N, S, E or W.
    West of Greenwich longitude needs a minus sign and so also latitude for south of equator.
