    Coordinate conversion - Reading GPS from Bluetooth external device

    Hi all,
    I 'm developing on J2ME.

    Reading coordinates from external gps.
    Evaluating the GPGGA string.

    The latitude value is represented in DDMM.MMMM format
    and longitude value in DDD.MM.MMMM format.

    To convert on DD.DDDD value, I do in this way:

    DD + (mm.mmmm / 60)
    and
    DDD + (mm.mmmm/60)

    in this way, the mapped position is moved from the real position of 7~9 meters.

    I think there's an approssimation error on the division, anyone can suggest me a better kind of conversion?


    Thanks
