  • There are no virtual earth methods for dealing with UTM coordinates, but there are plenty of external libraries available to convert these to WGS84.

    I recommend looking at FWTools (which implements the Proj.4 projection library, capable of transforming coordinates between lots of projections). It's available from http://fwtools.maptools.org/ and contains code samples of how to use the library in several environments, including C#.
