The supersymmetric WIMP hypothesis is currently under scrutiny as there is no experimental result supporting the existence a lightest supersymmetric particle. The recent non-detection in large scale direct detection experiments has demonstrated that a broader approach towards dark matter particles is indicated. In this work, we show a simple approach to convert constraints/sensitivities from direct detection experiments into indirect constraints (and vice versa). This helps to use the complementary information provided by different dark matter search methods in a consistent way. Furthermore, the same approach is then useful to calculate the corresponding relic density under the assumption of thermal dark matter production.
