Converting DegDec to MinDec


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I have TI30X-IIS calculator that will let me convert longitudes and latitudes in various ways. I can't for the life of me figure out how to convert DegDec to Mindec or MinDec to DMS. I'm using MS Streets and Trips with a Garmin Etrex and I thought these conversions would make it easier to make my maps without having to switch the format back and forth on the Etrex.

Just multiply the decimal portion by 60. Example: 97.506355* = 97* (.506355 * 60 = 33.813)' icon_cool.gif

I finally got all the figures I needed. Thanks to everyone that responded. After only being in the sport for a couple of weeks I only have one thing to say........GOOD SPORT, GOOD PEOPLE. Markwell, thanks for the post. I found some stuff on your site I didn't even know I needed to know. In other words I've got a lot to learn.
