Re: [gpsstash] Digest Number 86


the way i figure it, since every GPS i've ever seen by default comes setup
displaying hddd mm.mmm in WGS84, people who want to use utm can convert it
themselves..

nobody can get 1 meter accuracy, so I dont see the advantage, other than
making finding your position on a printed map easier -- in which case we'd
also need to change the datum.. maybe one of the web scripting wiz's can
make a converter... who knows..
