Trying to convert UTM to Long/Lat

$teamlocation =& new gPoint();
$longOrigin = -41;
echo "My GPS says it is this: "; $teamlocation->printUTM(); echo "<br>";
echo 'The LL Map reference is '; $teamlocation->printLatLong($longOrigin);

For the folllowing UTM figures Easting 511487 and Northing 5413791 55G gives "The LL Map reference is Latitude: -131.15964 Longitude: 146.84345" which is grossly incorrect.

Any suggestions please.
