Thanks, Magnus.  I've not heard of ICD-GPS-2000 or ION red book before. 
  Perhaps one day I will look them up.

GPS continues to impress me - I counted and on holiday recently we took 
(at least) 7 GPS receivers - his and hers smart-phones, 2 iPads, Garmin 
GPS 60 CSx, Ventus 750, and one built into my Sony HX200V camera!  The 
Garmin spent much of its time with a puck antenna stuck on the cabin 
porthole plotting our course.
