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..
