You originally stated that you wanted speed/course/altitude.

If you transmit the GPRMC sentence you'll only have
time/position/speed/course sent out.

If you choose GPGGA instead, you'll be sending

Many TNC's that can send Standard APRS, Mic-E Compressed, or Base-91
packets allow you to select which of the speed/course/altitude
parameters to send, and can send them in every packet.
