Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I need to know how to search geographic coordinates in OSM. For example, type in the location (-20.45667 / -54.61852) into the search field of OSM but the system does not show the location. The format is incorrect? What is the correct way?

Type the numbers in the search field without the slash in between. You will then see something like

Results from Internal
-20.45667, -54.61852

Click on the link and you're taken to the map at the desired position.
