As many of you have figured out, the search feature on PowerMap that utilizes Lat/Long hasn't been working. John has done some troubleshooting and has found a solution to the problem!
To make the Coordinate search work do the following:
1. Select Decimal (this is the easiest way to search)
Lat : (small number) 35.851053

2. Select the Geograhic option
3. In the drop down menu scroll down and select GCS_WGS_1984
If the information has been entered correctly, the numbers will turn bold.
