Is there an easy way on the 49G+ to convert back and forth from degrees, 
minutes, seconds to degrees in decimal?

Yes! Think of hours, minutes and seconds, with hours = degrees.

Rightshift 9  (TIME) then choose 4. Tools,  then pressing NXT gets you 
to the commands

\->HMS, which coverts decimal hours to hours, minutes, seconds and 

HMS\->, which converts hours, minutes, seconds to decimal hours.

The HMS format is hh.mmssfffff where h's represents hours, m's minutes, 
s's seconds and f's decimal fractions of a second.

Or holding down Rightshift and pressing 9 leads you directly
to the Tools menu.

So it does.

Perfect!

And if I recall, I can assign the hms tools to a softkey in a custom menu, 
and have them ready to go.

Thanks,
