Just replace the 2 decimal places with spaces. I do this with places 
where my digis are on commercial towers. It does update the posit when 
you change the decimals.. It'll move it within a mile or so of where the 
exact location is depending on how close you are to .00 x .00 unless you 
just so happen to be right in the .00 lat and .00 long then you might 
want to try moving the .00 to .50 or something like that.

I created a POS list for most of the texas repeaters and since I don't 
have exact lat and longs I use the posit ambibuity and I do it mostly to 
protect the repeater sites just in case.
