		sorry if i'm being missing the point and being pedantic, but i'm sure
		latitude measures angle north/south of the equator.
		longitude measures the angle east/west of the greenwich meridian
		are you at a point where the two have similar values, and getting them
		the wrong way round?
		alternatively, how precise is the lat/lon reading? tangogps provides
		an hdop value - realistically, this should be as low as possible.
		maybe you can't get a good fix, because of trees/buildings/old kernel
		with microsd interference?


One degree in latitude means 111 kilometers.
This thread is yearning for a screenshot!
