    conversion logic:
    -----------------------------------
    Latitude:

    original format: DDMM.MMMM

    Convert it to : DD + (MM.MMMM/60)
    IF Hemisphere is "N" value is Positive
    IF Hemisphere is "S" value is Negative

    -----------------------------------
    Longitude:

    original format: DDDMM.MMMM

    Convert it to : DDD + (MM.MMMM/60)
    IF Hemisphere is "W" value is Negative
    IF Hemisphere is "E" value is Positive
    --------------------------------------

    After the conversion you should be able to map the coordinates in Mappoint. Thanks
