Default Probably been discussed before but..Loran Conversion

Has anyone had any luck converting Loran-C numbers to GPS?

I have about 500 Loran numbers ..a few might pan out to still be good spots..

Arden works good but it’s better if you have have at least one confirmed number so help set the accuracy

There are numerous online sites offering conversion charts, apps, etc. I personally prefer the loran numbers over gps numbers.

The best conversion I know of is using a Furuno GP-32 or GP-35. Enter the loran number in, change the Furuno to GPS, they are spot on. (slow process) Andren will give a fairly good conversion, it will get you in the ball park. I'd still use the Furuno to get pinpoint accuracy with the TD's. I keep one on my boat with the display in TD's for use when I'm looking for an old reading.
