GPSInfo is a simple tool to enable and disable aquiring GPS position, and it displays various information about the location, such as the coordinates, current speed of the device and positioning resolution. The application also displays satellites in a graphical view.

Translations, issues and other contributions are welcome!

This is a fork of the original GPSInfo by Marcel Witte.

I like the "Time to first fix" as well.
Is the magnetic declination supposed to be automatic? If so it doesn't appear to be working automatically for me.
When I try to enter it under "Settings " nothing is displayed against the declination line on the main screen. Also when I try to put in an East declination which is a negative number it throws up a red error symbol.

I also like the time since last fix

Installed the latest version 0.13.5-1 just now on SFOS /Xperia 10.

I really like the new 'Time to fix' display and also the new compass display 'Calibration', that gives an impression how reliable the compass information is.

How is the 'Magnetic Declination' display to handle?

Many thanks!

Hello there! If you would like to test the improved bar graph (and a few other things), please check out this pull request for the binaries. It's a work-in-progress, but opinions are welcome, especially about the bar graph appearance. Thanks!

Many thanks man for further updating this tool. I will push my PRs to your repo as well.

You're welcome! I'm open to PRs and issues are enabled as well.

As I can't create issues on the github project I'll post it over here. Regarding commit : maybe a bit of nitpicking, but just adding  a license of your liking to the work of someone else is not how it should be done. To make things worse, no license (which is the case here) could mean it has copyrights, so any license would have been better than no license.

Did you ask the author to put a license on his original work? That would be the proper way to handle this.

It's nice to see that people actually pay attention to these things!

I originally made a pull request and waited for two weeks until I closed it. I also noticed that balta3 has been rather inactive in GitHub, and that the comments in Jolla Store long for updating the comment. Therefore I decided to publish my work under the same name, and make it clear that it is a fork of someone elses work. I have to admit that I assumed the developer has abandoned Sailfish OS, and just went with it. If he so wishes, I am more than happy to push my work back to the original branch so that the Jolla Store application can be updated.

And finally, the actual concern which is the license: as @martinmiklos wrote before me, the original project is licensed under GPLv2 license and it is expressed on the About page (although the text only says GPL without a number, the license file is GPLv2). The change I made only makes it clear in the context of GitHub repository.

I hope this fully answers the issue!

Edit: I also enabled issues in GitHub, thanks for pointing that out!

I only checked the github repository, but now it it is clear that it is mentioned in the About page, it is only better that you included the license in the repo. And thanks for doing some maintenance on this app!
