GPS Formats on Pentax K-1

Hello

Since a couple of days I am the proud owner of an Pentax K-1

Now I have some question about the GPS Format Displayed on the Camera!

The Format ist;
Degrees and Decimal Minutes
DDD° MM.MMM'
32° 18.385' N 122° 36.875' W

Is their a way to change it to Formats that are more popular hier in Europe
Degrees, Minutes and Seconds
DDD° MM' SS.S"
32° 18' 23.1" N 122° 36' 52.5" W

or

Decimal Degrees
DDD.DDDDD°
32.30642° N 122.61458° W
or +32.30642, -122.61458

Regards
Gérard

Congrats!

And no, I don't believe there's a way to change the format.

It seems that most online resources these days (google maps; Bing maps ) use decimal minutes rather than the traditional 1/60 rule, so unless we are using an aircraft navigation system to check where our pictures were taken there is a logic to use the decimal convention.

Oh man! I really wish that this was selectable. Sure doesn't seem like it would be difficult. Getting tired of having to convert every GPS logging to decimal.
