I have the Samsung WB650. You can't input coordinates, but this is how it can be used:

Take a pic of where you are, trace on a map. Simply put. Some don't even have the maps, but regardless, this does, and it's helpful. It will give you your actual location on the map, mark out certain things, streets, etc. There's also a photo view, which can be used to trace steps within a city.

There's also a home file in there, which one can edit in notepad with the home coordinates. It can't be edited on-board. So I use it to find our car, stations, etc. when we're touring cities.

Ok, that's news to me. I had no idea this existed.
