    Looking for lat. & long.

    Is there an app that will give you directions from "my location" to a latitude and longitude? Google Maps does not seem to have this ability.

    Might want to search for a geocatching app

    Geo Pointe might be it. I'll test it out.

    What did you try in Google Maps? It works for me. I think you just have to make sure you have coordinates that more or less correspond to an actual road.

    How so? You can enter lat & long for a destination.

    I mean, I just entered 29 25′ 32″ N, 98 29′ 10″ W (29.425556, -98.486111) would work as well, based on prior experience) for the Alamo in San Antonio as a destination and had no problems getting directions.

    It does require data coverage though. A geocaching/tracking type of app might be better suited.

    I personally use google maps on my droid while at work to figure if a geocaching puzzle answer is plausible. Use the layout of Serach: n 29 25.320 W 098 29.100. The google maps tends to come up with the nearest address, but usually has a green arrow at the actual coordinates.
