[GeoStL] Question about coordinates on Google Earth

I can read a map and use a GPS but when it comes to all the different formats 
for coordinates, I'm lost.  When looking at Google Earth, the coordinates that 
show up at the bottom of the map indicating where the cursor is located shows 
up like this:   38 24' 09.64"N  91 01'09.57"W        Using the GPS that same 
spot would be:   N38 24.160  W091 01.159
My question is, what would be the easiest way to take the coordinates from a 
spot on the map when using Google Earth and convert it into the coordinates we 
use in our GPS?
What I'm wanting to do is find a spot on Google Earth, place my cursor there 
and get the coordinates, then convert them to the format the GPS uses, put them 
in my GPS and be able to find that spot in the real world. I'd appreciate any 
help you guys can offer. Thanks.
