Sometimes a task arises to find on a map and save a point according to its geographical coordinates, but at hand from navigation programs only Google maps or Yandex Navigator on Android - these programs are on most Android phones and are usually always at hand. It turns out that this task is quite feasible in these "simplified" navigation programs.
Note: all the functionality of these programs is not available without an Internet connection and the described actions without the Internet will most likely not work.

Google Maps on Android:
Search:
Searches for places by coordinates in a format (two coordinates can be entered separated by commas with a space or by a space - there is no difference):
- Degrees, minutes and seconds. Example: 45 ° 03'27.8 "N 38 ° 58'55.1" E
- Degrees, minutes and fractions of minutes. Example: 45 03.463, 38 58.918
- Degrees and fractions of degrees. Example: 45.057717, 38.981961

Preservation:
Option 1:
1. If you click on the marker of a place found by its coordinates, its properties will appear and there will be a button "Save"(with an asterisk)

In the main application menu -> section "Your places" --> "Saved"there will be a list of such places. But they will be called as it happens (the name is taken from the map data and you can’t change it).

Option 2:
1. If you click on the marker of a place found by its coordinates, its properties will appear and there will be a button "Label"(For shortcuts to work, the application and web search history must be enabled. If it is disabled, it will be offered to enable it)
2. When you click "Label"you’ll be prompted to enter a label name and save it.

In the main application menu -> section "Your places" --> "With Shortcuts"there will be a list of such places.

Yandex Navigator on Android:
Search:
Searches for places by coordinates in a format (two coordinates can be entered separated by commas with a space or by a space - there is no difference):
- Degrees, minutes and seconds. Example: 45 ° 03'27.8 "N 38 ° 58'55.1" E
- Degrees, minutes and fractions of minutes. Example: 45 03.463, 38 58.918
- Degrees and fractions of degrees. Example: 45.057717, 38.981961
Please note: if you entered the coordinates without indicating the hemispheres (the second or third format option) Yandex will offer you at least two places: in the first case, the coordinates will be as you entered, and in the second they will be swapped (and you run the risk of being in Turkey!)

Preservation:

1. If you click on the marker of a place found by its coordinates, its properties will appear and there will be a button "Add to My Places".
2. Next, you need to select a list of places or create a new one (You can simply save to "Favorite").
3. Then you should specify the name of the place and click "Save"

The list of saved places is available under the "My places"on the home screen.
