Actually, while related to the earlier question, this
is a different issue.  I understand that presently,
SYMxyz is used only with raw NMEA.  I'm past that. 
I'm now asking about something for the future...

I am asking about combining SYMxyz with a traditional
APRS lat/lon packet.  *If* that were to occur, is
there a precedence to decoding it (I'm hoping that
legacy systems favor /$ and ignore SYMxyz in that

I suppose I should just test it against UI-View and
findU and see what happens.  Sorry to bother the list.

Kind regards,
