GPSD - INDI Control Panel - Bad Longitude Reading?!?

I'm getting 2 out of 3 GPS readings correctly in the INDI Control Panel from GPSD.

1) Lat = Great
2) Lon = a number off the charts . . .242.XX.XX invalid Longitude reading.
3) Elevation = Great

If I go to the terminal and type gpsmon, it's perfect!  I see the correct Longitude reading of -117.XX.XX

Does anyone know why I'm getting an invalid Longitude reading in the INDI control panel?

I'm expecting to see -117 for Longitude and I'm seeing 242  

Thanks!

It's just using a value from 0 to 360 increasing as you go east. Rather than the more traditional -180 through 0 to +180.
