My goal is to convert gps coordinates to the format which the OLEX plotter has, so I can import them as marks.

So I created a point at 64 10.239N and 51 41.523W
I exported the point, and the file says 3850.2395026 -3101.5235411 1495562630
The last one seems to be the time, and is not important to me at this point.

So my question is: what format does the OLEX plotter have?
And possibly how to calculate this?

The answer to this is simple.
The decimal degrees just needed to be multiplied by 60.
In other words: The values in the file are minutes.

64.1707 × 60 = 3850.24
-51.692  × 60 = -3101.52
