| What's wrong with putting :
| 43.19943186885426, 5.632711829632374 (Station)
| Into the search-box on Google Maps ?

bingo! give that man a cookie or a pint or whatever,
please. that did it. the issue here is knowing how
to specifiy lat./long. to Google Maps. I did search
but failed to find anything; albeit having seen that
example, a (new and different) search did locate the
relevant (but sparse) help page.

sounds even better — I'll look into this after the
game. but I'll _guess_ I wasn't using the best
terms to search for such a functionality....? ;-\
thanks & cheers!
