New Simrad GS25 GPS

I just received a new $300 GPS to add to our $9,000 Simrad autopilot and Instrument system.  I was really excited as now I'd have super fast position updates coming from the new NMEA 2000 Simrad GS25 GPS.  

I plug in the new Simrad GS25 GPS and here is the position it displays.  S152 53.811
 Yep, it says we are at SOUTH 152 degrees?  WTF!  Where exactly is that?
It took a few weeks and WAY more time and hassle than it should have, but Navico came through and shipped me a working GPS 25 unit.
