I am not sure why GPSOut is setting this field to 0 (invalid). The value should be 1, where 1 = GPS fix (SPS).

I'm not sure where you are getting those GPGGA lines from. The output from GPSout.DLL (the original), and the equivalent GPSout facilities in all of FSUIPC3, FSUIPC4 and FSUIPC4 versions is actually hard-coded to be a 1 in that position. I think you must be looking at something else?
