I have received some GPS co-ordinates in the following format like - "17267690N 078279340E"..
How to convert the co-ordinates to show it on Google map.

the native GPS coordinate system is WGS 84, but one should be wary that the GPS could have been configured to another Lat/long system (wrong datum induce up to 150m error). Looking at your data this is most probably lat/long in decimal degree DDD.DDDDDD for Longitude and DD.DDDDDD for latitude (need to divide both by 10e6). I assume this because you probably have the same precision in Lat and Long, and you don't need three digit for Lat ( -90 to 90) contrary to Long (-180 to 180).
EDIT: However, you should make sure that it is not DD°MM.mmmm by looking at the digits after the degree: if the value never exceed 59.9999, then it was probably DD°MM.mmmm (especially if your point is in the sea, which is not the case here) as suggested by @mkennedy
