Here in GPS mode:

   VE2PRT 3,BN  VIA D-RATS*47  

The above is translated at the receiving end to be fed to APRS-IS as 

   VE2PRT-3>APDPRS,DSTAR*,qAR,VA2RKA-B:!4527.32N/07335.26W- VIA D-RATS/A=000089

In GPS mode, there is option to send $GPGGA and/or $GPRMC. Sending both 
will provide both altitude, speed and course. 

and here in GPS A mode:

   $$CRC7647,VE2PRT-3>APRATS,DSTAR*:@141113h4527.32N/07335.26W-ve2prt at sympatico.ca 

After validation, the CRC is removed and the string is passed as is 
starting to APRS-IS.

When I mention "APRS-IS", it can be some remote server to redistribute 
over the Internet and/or a local server to feed local APRS clients 
(Xastir, UI-View, etc).
