ED50 to WGS84

Fri Sep 25, 2009 6:55 pm

Hi I'm trying the coordinate conversion of GPStools, I would like to convert points in ED50 (ITALY) and plot them on google map-earth.

Dim pos As Position = New Position()
pos.Datum = GpsToolsNET.Datum.ED_50
pos.Grid = GpsToolsNET.Grid.UTM_ED_50
pos.Zone = "32N"

pos.Northing = 350506
pos.Easting = 5042375

here is the result.
Debug.Print(pos.Longitude)
Debug.Print(pos.Latitude)
7.0859934351099
45.5180207926802

But if I plot this on google map-earth the point is not correct, the coordinates taken from google earth for the same point are:
7.08452939987183
45.5171733534943
which differ a little bit from the one I converted before.
Is there anything I must take care of?

Thank in advance
