Show current GPS Position as Maidenhead Locator (used in HAM Radio).

  • Also show GPS position as latitude, longitude and altitude.
  • Locator can be copied to clipboard
  • Shows some basic info about the GPS satellites.

Known bugs:

  • The icon doesn't conform with the standard (I'm really not talented for this)

Disclaimer:

This is my first App for Sailish OS

It was heavily inspired by the GPSInfo App, but C++ code was rewritten from scratch.

Could you add a sound of connect/disconnect to satellites please? That will be good difference and enhancement of functionality from GpsInfo.

Thanks, but no any GPSLocator for my device still here in Storeman. Xperia XA2, 4 5.0.25.

Seems to be working fine on 4.5.0.25 for me. Installed with no issues from storeman.

On what Sfos version is this release? No available for 4.5.0.24+

I compiled it using SDK 3.10.4 for SFOS 4.5.0.18, could install it via the storeman app and use it with SFOS 4.5.0.25 on aarch64 without problems. Does it work if you use the direct download links from openrepos?

From Openrepos site it loads and works, yea. But.. It's a same app as GPSInfo, even with less functionality and languages. . Eh, sad.

Ah, for aarch64 only.. I have armv7hl.

I allready compiled it for armv7hl, but then deleted it again when I found it doesn't work on my Jolla 1 because it only has SFOS 3.4.
But if there are really armv7hl devices running with SFOS 4.5 out there, I will compile and upload it again.
Out of curiosity, what kind of device do you have with armv7hl and SFOS 4.5?

Edit: I just have compiled and uploaded the latest version for armv7hl
