I'm looking at ways to convert MGRS coordinates to Decimal  Latitude, Longitude  I've come across CoordinateSharp  the Developer Guide makes use of tryParse but dosn't seem say how to trap the errors nor dose the dotnetfiddle example

I also note the output is Degree minute seconds not digital

The Developer Guide Suggests "c.FormatOptions.CoordinateFormatType = CoordinateFormatType.Degree_Decimal_Minutes;"

However this Errors

		string mgrs = "16R CV 05774 44722";
		Coordinate c;
		if(Coordinate.TryParse("16R CV 05774 44722", out c))
			c.FormatOptions.CoordinateFormatType = CoordinateFormatType.Degree_Decimal_Minutes;


So how do I rewrite the above trapping errors and output to  Decimal  Latitude, Longitude variables?
