Find decimal degrees from autocad coordinates

Good day.


I received a DWG file from one of our clients, of the metro of a city. It was exported from another viewer, and now I need to find specific points on the map, and then find the exact decimal degrees.


What I'm getting now is only the autocad co-ordinates ie. -73000.4049  -2886295.2588


That is not what I want. I want something like  S26.08124 E28.27016


I'm working on Win 7 Pro 64bit

Autocad LT 2013


Please help.

Try using the zoomp command to zoom to a specific point and try turning you mspoints layer on and clicking on your desired coordinate. That might work.
