GPSBabel 1.2.2 is now available for download. The only changes
since the beta were the addition of Ron's 'correction' filter
and several changes in MacGPSBabel, so if you are happy with
gpsbabel_1_2_2_beta0317a2004 then there's really no reason to reload.
Thanx to everyone that contributed time to getting this out the door.

Am I correct in my reading of the XCSV style that it understands decimal
coordinates, but not GPS coordinates?
For example, it can handle this
N37 24.269, W121 56.030
are there any formats that do use GPS coordinates?

Those two aren't mutually exclustive, but....

What I personally use - and it's admittedly a contrived fit because of
the synthetic multiply-by-100-thing - for representing what you call
"GPS coordinates" is "gpsutil" which would describe that waypoint as
BlahBlah 3724.269N 12156.030W 0000000m Blah blah blah blah h
I know of no human-readable (XCSV) format that accepts coordinate as
DD.MM.MMM, though I've flirted with inventing one solely so I could cut
and past from geocaching logs and cache pages which are traditionally
