Default Latitude/longitude puzzles

Does anyone else hate them as much as I do? I just exit out of them now, because if I do them it really increases my average time. I have a difficult time reading the lats/longs that are vertical, and sometimes it's hard to distinguish between an 8 and a 6, or an 8 and a 3.

yeah, i agree they're hard. i usually try to only look at like the last 2 digits of each and the W and N. that usually makes them unique. tho, they aren't in any order that way, but it's a smaller 'thing' to look at...

That's what I do too. Makes it a little easier but they are still quite horrible.

Default Latitude/longitude puzzles...

I simply refuse to work them. When one opens up, I simple click on a new puzzle...

Yep, I have discarded a number of those which have Long/Lat or three sets of numbers to work with.
