There is a very useful APT for the Androids devices call GPS Status. It's Icon is:
The Google play webpage for it is here:
What is nice is that the GPS formats are selectable.  There just happens to be one that matches the Gemini-2.  I will go through the 4 screens to set this up.  You will first have to goto the Google store and install the APT.  It is free.
This is the main screen of the App.

Use the Phones Main select button and select setting to see this screen.

Select the Units and Formatting selection.
Now you need to select location format.  This will take you to the next screen.
