I've been using wikimapia.org to find my favourite spots in Oman.
When you mark a new place it gives you the coordinates in degrees -northings and eastings. I use UTM on my GPS and can't be bothered to change it over to enter the waypoints - so I found a couple of useful online converters and thought I'd share them with you all.

They are both pretty straightforward;

Here's another coordinate converter that was posted today on the PDO notice web. It displays the result directly in a Google map. Cute!
