 Does any one know what the degree format of the GPS fixes one get from
the LocationManager is? It looks like DD, but I can't find any
documentation specifying this.

DMS Degrees:Minutes:Seconds (4930'00"N, 12330'00"W)
DM Degrees:Decimal Minutes (4930.0', -12330.0'),
DD Decimal Degrees (49.5000,-123.5000), generally with 4-6 decimal

I can't back this up, but I'm fairly certain it's decimal degrees. Seems
like the only format that's easily represented by a single double value.
