(I can zoom out the map and these locations are shown ABOVE the world in the grey area! But then I have to go back and forth between different views)
As far as I know that is the only way to do that with stock Lightroom. There might be a plugin out there that can do it. Maybe the gps plugin that jeffrey friedl wrote (google for it) using its proximity search might work.
List View by John Beardsworth could also sort by latitude; that might help.
Thanks for those ideas. I have moved to Lightroom. Overall it suits me better but it still niggles. I'm getting round to thanking people who tried to help as I thought about moving, based on a little experience with it now.
The easiest way I have found is to import a batch, highlight them and click on Map, then zoom out. Click on the icon with a number shown outside the map area proper, which selects everything with invalid coordinates, and right click - delete coordinates. (That also lets them be searched for by missing coordinates but only while in Library view.) Then I give them all a colour tag so they stand out when I go through the whole set and add correct coordinates where missing. Finally select all and clear the colour tag.
It is a bit of a pain, but no more than using any of those add-ons.
