Ok, the network has a "BestSignal" of -70 somethings(db, dbm, power, whatever). It has a "MinLat" and "MaxLat" ( which are different and reasonable). The same is true for Longitude.
There are 19 entries over 42 seconds in the .gps for this BSSID. The signal values range from -74 to -77. Interestingly, the signal delta between chronologically sequential points is 1, in 17 out of 19 transitions.

There is no "BestLat" or "BestLon" because there was no GPS fix >2 at the point in time when the Signal=-70 was seen.

Is that approximately how this works?
