Most  GPS devices embedded in mobiles like the Nokia N810 output
something called the Recommended Minimum sentence C ($GPRMC).

I think GGA is also very common, though most device drivers filter GGA
(and other lines) and expose only RMC.

RMC is the minimum standard defined by
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NMEA which a device must support to be
considered 'a GPS device'.
