    Using the lat/long returns by GPS, how can I find the name and location of the closest city/town on the web?
    I am using a small GPS unit attached to an EPS32 wifi computer.

    Google Earth will display a map showing cities etc. If you go to the magnifying glass icon and enter the co-ordinates into the Serarch box, it will accept many different Lat/Long formats, eg. :-

    N43.65345 W79.384018

    You can also enter the above directly into a Google search to get a map like this Click HERE
