    Is there a method / formula to convert the various forms of map co-ordinates to the metric style?

    GPS

    There is normally a setting on the gps so you can change the units you are using.
    Includes different GPS formats,

    I have a tomtom 630 and can select which format I want.
    I change it according to what the coordinates are displayed as.
