in a pinch you know that 30 mins = .5 . Just round off. Even a whole degree should not maike any difference to the result. You are only given a couple of options in the gps setup and it dont take long to try each until you get the one u want.

Just use a calculator & divide by 60.
1 Deg = 60 minutes
1 Minute = 60 Seconds
