I was given this GPS positioning coordinates
N 13753081.1854
E 2009789.8880
and I am trying to find a conversion tool or any way to convert it into Googlemap coordinates.
Checked multiple sites and cannot find anything thta could convert these numbers.
They are valid and come from a GPS device (I was not told the name of it).
Please help if you recognize the format.

Hi
I was able to use this tool and convert from X Y coordinates to Latitude Longitute coordinates:
http://www.gps2cad.com/CoordTrans/CoordConvert.aspx
Some of the standards need to be defined better, but here's what I got:
37° 52' 4.994" Latitude
178° 16' 48.0498" Longitude
I didn't know what to put in the zone.
Why don't you check it out and see if any of the instruction make sense.

Hi
Do you have the zone information that goes with the coordinates?

They look a bit like a Transverse Mercator projection, like the UK Ordnance Survey projection, or UTM

As uucknaaa said, you really need to know what zone is being used. By the way, that's a really good tool.
I've got some code kicking around that I wrote a while ago that converts OSGB coordinates to WGS84, it'd be simple to plug in the parameters once you know which zone you're using.
For example, the OSGB ones are:
