Supported formats
There are many formats for submitting GPS data around. On this page only some
are supported. I include support for a format, if a user requests it at the
mailinglist or i feel, i should support the format.

Garbage in -> Garbage out
If you send malformed or incomplete formats, you get incomplete or unexpected results.

The parser tries to find more than one format in a message, this means,
you can send more than one position in different formats in a message. Example

Even if your format is not exactly the same as in the examples below,
send your position to the server inside a SMS, the parser will try hard to
find your position.
You can place for example the GPS data inside other text:
Hello friend, this is my position: GPGGA,050353.000,5215.0450,N,01214.3691,E,1,11,0.9,70.2,M,46.0,M,,0000*6B Check it out !

i couldn't find enough information to properly decode the network status.
