Google Earth. It'll probably give coordinates closer than the GPS and
it's free. Besides, for most things I can read them off an aeronautical
chart far closer than ever needed for ham radio.
BTW I do use on of the new Garmin aviation hand helds, but it's usually
hooked up where I can use the moving map display to good advantage.
and good luck
