    Sorry, i get a different Stand. UTC conversion for those lat/lon coordinates:

    Did you use Clarke 1866 as datum? BTW, NATO UTM uses a different format as explained earlier. Your coords are Standard UTM

    Yep, I did use the Clark 1866 datum.
    I think there is a problem somewhere...Blue Cathedral is the only point I know for sure.
    I will try to repair my GPS to see what unit/system is it.

    yes, I know it does not correspond at the stand UTM that I have for this point...strange

    Blue Cathedral Entry Point coords are given as N931.244 E12341.076 by this site:

    That's good enough 9.520722 123.684611 or 931'14.6" 12341'04.6" and is placed by Google Maps as about 50-70m to the immediate north of Balicasag Island: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. How come there's a problem, the lat/lon doesn't match with your data? The problem it seems is not with the conversions to Standard UTM therefore. The conversion on U of WIS site with Clarke 1866 datum i get is Easting 575139.3 Northing 1052496.8 Zone 51. i.e. to nearest whole figures:
    51575139E
    1052497N

    This is not the same cathedral. Blue Cathedral is in Siargao, Cathedral is in Bohol.
    My problem is that I have my list of points with apparently Standard UTM coord.
    and I can not translate it to another system to see where are those points.
    When I do it with Blue Cathderal ( it is the only point I have that I know exactly the location) I can compare UTM that I have and normal coord on google earth). And it does not match!
    all points of the list looks to be at the same location.

    @mamamouchi, I only recognized the format, but I actually know very little about this, so sorry I couldn't be of more help. It might help Neil and others to know which specific make and model number of your GPS unit that had created your list of way-points? Good luck.

    Thank you guys, but the problem is not Blue Cathedral!
    I know exactly where it is, and what is the exact location! (I am the only dive center here! )
    Blue Cathedral is good to work with (in order to find out what coord it is) , because I have both: UTM and normal coord.

    But I have a list of old dive sites, with old names. I would like to localisate them.
    and all sites have the same format.
    But when I want to convert the UTM to normal, it does not fit...and Blue Cathedral is a good example.
    arghhhh, not easy...
    and I can not post a photo...it does not work

    @mamamouchi
    Very preoccupied with 'cathedral' naming in Philippines it seems. Just to complicate life, there's also a tiny island 'Blue Cathedral' off Siargao at approx 9.844899 126.157463 about 1.5km NW of the dive site Blue Cathedral at 9.834645 126.167505:

    I'm so sorry, like tli i have no idea how to help you further. Caty's advice is good i think and you should contact other local dive shops/operators to check coords of the questionable sites. I recall dimly there's a problem using Standard UTM conversion outside continental NA as i said at first. This is something to do with a particular and area-specific equation used in converting there which is not usable for the rest of the world, however i thought the likely error was more that of a few [or at worse several] hundred metres, not many kilometres as you're finding.

    Here's another thing: When i convert the UTM coords [52174139E;1077749N] as you're supplied in P#9 to lat/long it places Blue Cathedral dive site at 9.736867 126.030315 and surprise, surprise! You'll never guess where that is:

    Yep, pretty-much right back where we started from at what you thought was a dive site ~200m directly to the east of the point of East Bacus Grande. Maybe you've accidentally mixed things up somewhere.
