Definitely looks to be parsing the NMEA data sensibly, and the Map
tab now shows the current latitude & longitude!

Based on the Console log data, the Garmin etrex that I'm using
on my KeySPan adapateris a very talkative device indeed.

It sends several different kinds of NMEA sentences each second.
The so-called "sentences" begin with '$'.   And the ones beginning with 
$GP*
are NMEA standard, whereas the ones beginning with $PG* are
apparently proprietary to Garmin
