converting loran to gps

I just acquired some numbers from an old friend for reefs and fishing spots in the gulf. He use to fish a lot and was successful, but due to age and health he has not fished in a while. The olny issue is his numbers are in the old loran format. What is the most accurate site to use to convert these to gps?

    The Andren program is the best but you have to have some marker numbers for the area. which means known Loran and GPS numbers to match.

    Do you have any known numbers of both for the same spot?

    I have a furno gps with that will switch over to TD. It gets me pretty darn close. Good news is that once you find a spot, you'll figure out how much and where it's off. Add two the top and one to the bottom, or whatever.

    I've been fishing some ancient loran stuff this year and it's darn sure hit or miss. Just because it's old does not mean it's good. I fished some areas last weekend that 10 years ago were loaded with fish, last weekend they were just absolutely pounded down to nothing. Desert. Point being, old can also mean just that many more people know about it, but it can also men stuff that folks have forgotten about.
