I would like to help with Polish translation but I didn't get a confirmation of my request to join on Transifex.

GPSInfo for Tablet has problems with satellite and compass info (on my tablet only?).
My jolla phone showes me 21 satellites (seven used) and the right direction (on GPS Info).
On my jolla tablet i see only one satellite (zero used) and the compass information is updated multible times in one seconde with random values.
I have version 0.8-1 installed.

Wish list: include altitude in "copy position to clipboard". By the way, altitude indication is always blinking. Why?

Any possibility to share the GPS location via email, text messaging, or social media.
-> Receives a link to Google Maps™ with my position.

@LeChuck I suggest using the clipboard.

The units shown at first startup are always imperial even if setting is metric. To get metric units, you must switch to imperial and then to metric again.

Then, how can I activate the satellite view?

balta's picture

Thanks for you report, I will look into this issue.

To activate the satellite view simply swipe to the right, as indicated by the sailfish-dot in the top right corner ;)

No, wait, just checked the version number and 0.1 got installed rather than 0.3.1. There was something wrong with my Warehouse app.

Vertical accuracy is always equal to horizontal accuracy. I doubt this is really accurate.

Sadly this is a problem of the hardware in the Jolla phone. See here: https://together.jolla.com/question/16827/bug-positioning-gives-bogus-numbers-for-horizontalaccuracy-and-verticalaccuracy/

On other hardware the values could be different.

Nice icon!

Jordi's picture

Any possibility to display the speed in km/h (and then also in mph)?

balta's picture

sorry for the late response, I've added this in 0.3

Jordi's picture

Thanks for this app, very well polished, I like the hability to choose what I see in the cover page.

A small bug: when choosing the metrics units, the speed value is displayed with a lot of digits after the decimal so it becomes unreadable.

Thanks for my first comment here :) I've updated to 0.2 and the speed is now rounded.
