G'day all, how do I convert one set of co ordinate number system to the other system with minutes for my old GPS?

Latitude 25.0477º S 25º 02' 51.72" S
Longitude 148.2075º E 148º 12' 26.96" E
25º 02' 51.72" S 148º 12' 26.96" E this one is the one I want,
both of these numbers are for the same site, thanks, aussiedingo

Go to Members, Members Fileswap, Conversion & Calculation Tools. In that directory is a GPS Coordinate conversion Excel File.

Aussiedingo,

The chances are you can change the Latitude/Longitude display on your GPS device. Have a look under Lat/Long display in the device's configuration menu.

There should be an option to select Degrees; Degree, Minutes; or Degrees, Minutes, Seconds.

60 minutes in a degree

25.0477º - multiply .0477 by 60 = 2.862 minutes

60 seconds in a minute

25º2.862' - multiply .862 by 60 = 51.72 seconds

25º2'51.72"

to go the other way divide by 60 and 60.

You did ask how to convert. :-)
