The lat and long are in signed degrees. There are a few online tools to 
retrieve your location in various formats. This is one of them 
http://f6fvy.free.fr/qthLocator/fullScreen.php

Click on your location and the popup will give you lat and long in 
signed degrees as well as a couple of other formats.

Eg Boston returns:
-----
Long : -71.05614 W (-71° 3' 22'' W)
Lat : 42.36311 N (42° 21' 47'' N)
QTH locator : FN42LI
----
You would use Lon "-71.05614" and Lat "42.36311" for that location.

Give that a try when your Kindle returns from holidays
