1)   http://map.findu.com/kc8gkf-5   shows the posit as you entered it; 
i.e. in correct DD MM.mm format.  Apparently you are transmitting it 

2)  You haven't stated WHAT SOFTWARE you entered the posit into, or 
where, or on what device, the incorrect display is appearing.  Without 
this rather obvious information, it is nearly impossible to guess at 
your problem.
