Thanks for your comments regarding this issue. I realise that the comma would actually be more in line with Swedish locale, but I also think that whenever (and wherever) coordinates are specified they are first and foremost provided as data to be treated by computer systems, and/or are an output from such systems. You wouldn't remember and write coordinates in a text meant to be read by humans. So I think that Google Maps made the right decision here.
