If you asked about me while in Morocco, sorry I did not keep any raw 
data. However, as soon as I made the first one test while waiting at the 
Paris airport (back to Europe), everything was fine again with reporting 
proper position. It seems that probably buggy dxlAPRS client software 
had issues with reporting negative latitudes in Morocco.

Btw, the TNC was Rigblaster P&P, and it was commanded by the same APRS 
client software (but another module, separated from the GPS module).
