    AGPS in MP2k2 shows wrong long/lat but yet plots correct pos

    but im hoping you can shed some light - on running AGPS it shows my lat as 51.52.432N which is what i see if i use terminal to view what my gps is sending in NMEA - this lat is wrong, it is in fact about 51.87 - but AGPS DOES plot this correct lat of 51.87 yet its info box says im at lat 51.52 - do you know whats going on here?
    Thanks

    AGPS is showing degree, minutes.. the 52 is like 52/60, approx. the .87 you are seeing.. there are some articles on here and some more information and an on-line tool on Directions, see this link: http://www.mp2kmag.com/latlong.asp
