Explain to me again why you're not using base-91 compressed
positions?  Is it because Kenwoods understand base-91 stations, but
not base-91 objects?

If you _could_ use base-91, you'd have separate icons as you zoomed
in, at their correct positions and within 2 or 3 feet of the true
location if the GPS was capable of it (which it is not, but it's
capable of better than 60').
