Is the paste of your file accurate, it doesn't quite match your description? If it is meant to be more like:
'car reg, location', 'gps string: lats:xxxx,longs:xxxxx, Alts:xxxx', ' +number of satellites fix';
then passing {quote_char => q<'>, allow_whitespace => 1} to Text::CSV->new should be enough.
