When I enter the coordinates 37°01.67'N 027°25.12'E into google maps it gives me the pin in the correct place, but seems to change those coordinates and gives conflicting results

Latitude and longitude are specified as degrees, minutes and seconds. In your coordinates, you specify 37°01.67', which means "37 degrees, 1.67 minutes". 0.67 minutes is the same as 40.2 seconds, which is what Google Maps shows (37°01'40.2" or "37 degrees, 1 minute, 40.2 seconds").

In other words, it's the same number, just written differently.
