Is there any way (such as a program) to convert back and forth?

Such as this?

for instance in your example the 83 degrees would stay the same (doh!) Take the .547676 multiplied by 60, which would give you a new figure of 32.861 minutes. Do just the opposite to convert back. However, most GPSrs can be programmed to read in whatever format you want it to - a lot simpler to do it that way.

Ever notice everybody is willing to give THEIR 2 cents worth but only offer a penny for YOUR thoughts?

I often use the web site at http://www.jeeep.com/details/coord/ when I want to make some translations. There is also a little program available that handle all the translations to the various formats.

.14235 * 60 = 8.541, so 30 08.541',

.547676 * 60 = 32.86056, so -87 32.86056'
