[aprssig] newbee with D72 and AVMAP G5

Probably not a bug.  Typical devices expect to have a single GPS active 
at any point in time.  If you expect it to talk to an external GPS, then 
it will expect the GPS source to come from there.  From an 
implementation point of view, it makes sense to require the external GPS 
to be enabled to get waypoints to go out there.
