Default TDs to GPS conversion Sites.

I'm looking for a good Site for converting TD numbers to GPS.

Thank you

I don't think there is a "good" conversion. As far as I know, this is as good as it gets.

No such site. All conversions are approximations but it can be done but requires a bit of local knowledge and to do this requires the Loran unit working or some well known, accurate and relatively recent Loran TD's in each area of interest.

Regards, Kerry.

If you own a Lowrance you can convert them on the unit. GPS set up, coordinate system, change the left column to UTM, exit out and create waypoints in UTM, then go back to the same window and change it to degrees/min and you are done. This will have no effect on the waypoints you have on the unit. UTM, Degrees/minutes are just a different language. It is like changing a word from English to French.
