Race notes by coordinates - DMS format

Hi
Is there a way to manually enter race notes? I got a document about some fishing crates that were installed underwater close to our home port, and I wanted to enter some race notes to avoid them. There are 28 of them, so I dont want to place them on the map, and they are in DMS format, so its not possible to directly enter them in a .csv. Is there a better way to do this? os hall I look for a DMS to DD.DDDD converter?

Decimal degrees would just be

D + M/60 + S/3600

Re: Race notes by coordinates - DMS format

Hi Nick
I have created a csv file accourding the manual:
area name
lat,lon
lat, lon

and I get an error back. 
this is the beginning of the file:

haliv1
N45.906944,E13.848333
N45.906111,E13.848611

I tried DD MM.MMM format but that did not helped either. What am I doing wrong?

You could try

45.906944,13.848333
45.906111,13.848611
