Many thanks for your input so far Bertrand, but my head is now spinning and I am nowhere nearer to coverting what I need.
So, I now know that my 2610 is operating on degree, decimal minutes.
I wanted to try and convert Ordnance Survey points to my 2610, this is to mark 'wetroads' to find in the Isle of Man.
To try out what I thought was 'sorted' I used Google earth which is in the same format as my 2610(I hope)
The OS point SC304 893 was put through an online converter and the result 'cut n pasted' on Google earth, and it put me 126kms SW of Cornwall
Why does it all so confusing??????????
'He who laughs last, was too slow to get the joke'
Never confuse the map with the journey.
