On the Mag 315 (which may be totally different) I go Setup->Coord System->Primary->Lat/Lon, and then I get an option as to which format for Lat/Lon I want. This is a little long-winded, but I haven't yet found an easier way.

 

It should be fairly easy for Groundspeak to put up a web-based converter script, a few lines of Perl should do it. Alternatively, put in code to display all co-ordinates in the different formats on the pages themselves.

There is a clickable button on each cache that converts the co-ords to several other common co-ords, including what you want.

 

However, the accepted practice seems to be to use another button on the cache page to download info to EasyGPS, then use a cable to upload the waypoint to your GPS.
