[TangoGPS] POI coordinates as WGS84 deg and min

I tried in the "add POI" window with this coordinate:
N 55° 33.144 E 8° 6.278
with or without the degree character (which hasn't made it into illume's
default keyboard, used ssh -X to test that).
The SQL command executed by tGPS looks like this:
SQL: INSERT INTO poi (idmd5, lat, lon, visibility, cat, subcat, keywords,
desc, price_range, extended_open) VALUES
So the lat/lon values silently fall to zero, I guess because of the
characters instead of ciphers in the text input field.
