Default Grid format?

Pardon my ignorance but a rookie has to ask... which grid format is 87 13.295'W as commonly used on Escambia County Reef list?

hddd.ddddd(degree symbol)

or

hddd(degree symbol)mm.mmm' (I think this one.)

or

hddd(degree symbol)mm'ss.s" (I don't think it is this one.)

I appreciate any help or hints someone could give me.

Thanks!

Either divide or multiply by 60 to convert from one to the other.

Thanks. I'm trying to get them to match up to the format choices I have on my GPS.
