        I know this is really old, but I'm going through some things on my to-do
        list today and this was still in there. I checked it out on the bench,
        and course and speed seem to be reported just fine in compressed mode.
        If you're still having trouble, I'll need more information about the
        display side.

        Thanks,

        Scott
