I would like to have the user select a point on a map and then use this coordinate as input data in a coordinate column.
- Would something like this be possible "out-of-the-box" in the SF using the maps extension?
- Is there except for the paragraph in the documentation some additional documentation about this?

Using a point on the map as input for a column or task parameter is currently not supported. Feel free to create a topic in the Ideas section.
You can place a marker on the map and have the user drag the marker to the right location. There is a topic about this on the community site.
Mobile devices can also use the current location as input for a latitude/longitude field. More info here.
I read the topic about dragging the marker to another location. That could be a workaround for us.
Displaying the map with a default marker in the center of the country and then have the user drag it to the desired location and save that new location to the database.
Where/how do I activate/get the Google maps extention?
Do add a topic in the Ideas section if this solution becomes cumbersome.
