Hi Chris,
Are you storing latitude and longitude as a separate individual user meta
key / value pairs or as a serialized array?

I usually use json_encode on a php array to store multiple values in user
or post meta and did not have issues with negative values in this case.
Regardless, negative sign shouldn't be stripped out. Perhaps, it happens in
the the processing code rather than in the core?
