    A coordinate is only really meaningful when you know which datum it is associated with.  Avenza doesn't directly indicate to a user which datum a coordinate is associated with.  You have to know a system setting as well as the datum of the map you are using, to know what datum a coordinate is associated with.

      I use custom maps provided to me, and they come in various projections and datums.  So I have to search around the app itself to work out what datum a coordinate is associated with.   It is a bit of a PITA.

    I think that it would improve the app usability if you displayed the datum a coordinate was associated with.  For example   -> --23.867632, 148.138781  WGS84

    Or For example   -> --55 615950 E 7359962 S  WGS84

    Or For example   -> --23.867645, 148.138774  GDA94

    Including The Edit Location page when Adding a Placemark, as well as when viewing an existing Placemark's Details-Location.  Also on the location tab on the menu at the bottom of the map display.
