Statusbar plugin bug in L/G display

The attached screenshot contains it all. I stopped the gps and placed the ship in known position (full zoom). I also tried to place the cursor at the same position (during the 10s delay before screenshot is taken).
  1. Ship position reported by dashboard : 4850' N, 00325' W ;
  2. Cursor position, reported by dashboard, is the same, at 0,001' !
    0 - cursor is located at 71 cm from Ship position !
  3. Cursor position in OCPN status bar ;
  4. Ship position in plugin statusbar : OK 0.01" ;
  5. Cursor position in plug in statusbar : wrong, error = 1' (which is huge !)
The screenshot shows an error in cursor longitude, but errors can affect latitude and/or longitude of Ship and Cursor position, up to 1' (typical). It looks like a rounding error.

Re: Statusbar plugin bug in L/G display

great report.

I can fix in 2 possible ways:

1) minutes need to always round down if seconds are displayed.
2) If the minutes are used without decimal places, they should round down.

This fix can also allow for decimal degrees (no minutes or seconds) mode to work as well which is currently not possible
