My local orienteering club have put out markers in the terrain as a
trial project and given their coordinates in UTM zone 34. My GPS
device only handle degrees, minutes and seconds.
Therefore, I am trying to use gpsbabel to convert from UTM coordinates
zone 34 in the northern hemisphere to degrees, minutes, seconds. I
realized the conversion put me 50 meters of the target, so I must be
doing something wrong. Can anyone see where I go wrong? My input file
"in.csv" looks like this:
34 N 420196 7732994, Post 42
I use the following command line:
gpsbabel -i unicsv -f in.csv -o unicsv -F out.csv
The content of "out.csv" looks like this:
However, if I use the tool
recommended on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Transverse_Mercator_coordinate_system,
I get the correct coordinates, which are:
I have verfied this in the terrain!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

sorry for the delayed answer! :-(
Some seconds ago I've applied new code for the conversion from UTM to
And here are the new results:
