The recent upgrade to Android Lollipop may lead to the degree sign (°) showing up in the co-ordinates as a question mark in the Font used by “Gaybod" on your smartphone. We are therefore in the process of changing the “degrees, minutes & seconds co-ordinates" to simple co-ordinates as used in many GPS systems. This has the added advantage of being able to automatically connect the site to Google Maps.
Just right click on the underlined coordinate on the site or touch it on the screen of your smartphone and you will immediately be taken to Google Maps (sometimes you have to open a new tab). This brings up a map showing the exact position of the co-ordinates on the map. You can then click-on the routing icon, choose whether you are going by car, public transport, walking or cycling and then put in your postcode for your present position (unfortunately the present location button doesn’t seem to work) and you will have a step-by-step description of how to get from there to the site.
