GPS Status Information

Post by Dubbedown »

I could’ve swore earlier versions showed GPS status, with a red/yellow/green status bar showing # of satellites fixed. Is this still available in v22?

Provided the number of satellites locked is available, they are shown e.g. in the top left bar in GPS View. The number of satellites locked is available in case sensor access is using direct access to a NMEA stream or some comparable low level protocol: samples having sat information available are external GPS accessories shown on LapTimer’s compatibility pages, and many Android phones. Examples missing this feature are the iPhone’s internal GPS, some Android phones or Android phones forced to use Android’s location service (Expert Setting), external GPSes not integrated directly (Garmin Glo in iOS).
