Reading GPS Info on the N9342C Spectrum Analyzer

Agilent's N9342C spectrum analyzer has a GPS option which shows latitude, longitude and UTC date and time on the display.  Unfortunately, there are no SCPI commands that give access to this information.  The only way to record lat, lon and UTC is to save a screen shot which is useless for post-processing.

The Anritsu MS2721B, for example has the following SCPI command:
:FETCh:GPS?

This returns a set of comma delimited values including fix status, UTC date and time, latitude and longitude.  Although the N9342C has many useful capabilities, I can't understand why this capability was not implemented.
