Substitute Decimal for Latitude, Longitude



I want to use bing maps in my power app. By using GPS i get the Latitude and Longitude with a "," Seperator. 

Bing maps can not use this information. I have to delete the coma and substitute it with a dot. Only if i do this i get a map in power apps. 


Can someone tell me please how to change the settings to get coordinates with Decimalseparator "."


I use the following function to get the Latitude and Longitude:


If(tglGPSLocation.Value;Location.Latitude&","&Location.Longitude;" ")

Thanks for your help. 


Sadly it still does not work

Does it throw any error or do you simply not see any value?

Can you break the formula down into multiple labels just to see the output?

I've got the same problem. Only on a android mobile phone. On an android/apple is the seperator a ",", while on the desktop is ".". I need this seperator to be "." on an android/apple. I've tried substitute, but didn't work. The thing is, it does send the coördinates to dataverse in "." but I created the geoJSON string in powerapp, which cannot in Dataverse. But the phones turning the "." in a ",". Is there an another way to concatened multiple coordinates into a geoJSON string to an Text Column in Dataverse? Sort of workaround for the phone? Business Rules or Calculated fields didn't worked either. 


EDIT: substitute control element did the trick e.g. Substitute(DataCardValue24.Text, ",",".") Which is toggle for Location.Longitude. You can patch this to whatever you want.
