I really need some help. I am running SH3 with GWX and SHCommander.

I got a contact report with a position in Longitude and Latitude. Unfortunatly there are no Long/Lat coordinates on the navigation map so I have no idea where the contact is located.

Am I missing something? Is there a tool I am missing?

You're thinking of one of those "ambiance" messages that are added to the game. Real contacts are assigned a grid reference and the convoy sighting appears on the map. Other messages are randomly sent to you, such as from merchant ships sinking, U-boats reporting sinking, etc. These do not correspond to real events in the game, but are "chatter." They are added by modders to give some atmosphere to the game.
