Re: [OziUsers-L] GNSS
- Hi Philip
GNSS is not a chipset. It is an acronym which means Global Navigation
Satellite System, a generic acronym which covers every type of satellite
base location system.
Which of course include GPS (which is the American one), Galileo (the
European one), Glonass (the Russian one) and may be others.
Note that this is is just an explanation of the wording.
I do not mean by now that the chipset on your tableat is compatible with
one or many of these systems.
We would need more details on your tableat and its effective chipset.

properly this time. :-)
Being a firm believer in "some blabbering in a forum does not a
standard make", I looked it up, and it does indeed appear the APIs can
do that and more.
It doesn't explain why near-nobody supports it though.
I'm sure I read a reply by Des that said the API doesn't have that (or
words to that effect), but I can't find evidence of that, so either it
was someone else quoting Des, or I imagined it.
Perhaps an early version of the API was documented that didn't have
that, a flakey guess, but that's the best I can do for now.
