For a GPS position, you could use two sensors with SENS_ANGLE and UNITS_DEGREE.

Unfortunately, the 16-bit resolution of RDM sensors won't work very well for GPS because of the large scale. Depending on where you are on the earth, you'll only get about 1/2 mile resolution. You could break each value into two sensors, and report the full degree and fractional degree parts separately.
