Having output from NMEA pipe does not mean that it is capable to say 
where you are. As you are indoors, there are zero satellites seen 
around. Hence both coordinates and altitude cannot be determined. So 
they are shown as NaNs (not a numbers). The systems seems operating 
correctly. Just walk in the open place and wait for a couple of minutes..
