I'm writing a document with some figures, each one has one label, and I'm using references. Every figure used appear at the list of figures, but not when referencing from text. When I do that, it prints "...like in Figure ??".

An example is:

GPS coordinates look like in Figure~\ref{fig:coord}.

\begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
    \includegraphics{/img/coord.png}
    \caption{GPS coordinates representation}
    \label{coord}
\end{figure}

Where is the problem here?

Your label is coord but you reference via fig:coord. Both must be the same.

Moreover it is always a good practice to provide an minimal example.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
GPS coordinates look like in Figure~\ref{fig:coord}.

\begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
  %  \includegraphics{/img/coord.png}
    \caption{GPS coordinates representation}
    \label{fig:coord}
\end{figure}
\end{document}
