AU / Docomo ( GPS mode ) returns a 'lon' and 'lat' variable.
for more info have a look at this page :
it has a lot of useful information.( its in Japanese but you can find all the code examples in the text )
Incidentally l know that on AU handsets you can request the co-ords to be delivered in either decimal ( like google eg 145.4523, 35.700 ) or in degrees and minutes - which looks like your examples (eg. 145.64.23, 35.23.23 ) using the 'unit' parameter when you make your request.

Subject: (keitai-l) parsing gps phone urls
I need to parse lat/lng parameter links created by a variety of GPS
phones. My understanding is that one can change the base url on such
e.g, the Toshiba 810T's
can be changed to
This elements contains the lat/lng
... and is easy enough to parse into decimal coordinates - but what
other syntax do JP phones use?
I know phones can handle several formats, including decimal degrees,
and that this is under user control on many handsets, but the fewer
changes users have to make, the better....
Does anyone have a list, or know where I can find one?
If your phone uses something different to the above I would
appreciate an offlist message letting me know what the format is.
It would be useful to know, for example, whether they all use the
"pos" term in the GET.
I want to build something that covers as wide a range of handsets as
Many thanks and kind regards
