It looks like Qualcomm is giving software Updates and Support only for this SoC Snapdragon 427, 435, 617, 625, 626, 650, 652, 653,*820, 821 e 835, Wear 1100 and 820 Automotive.
So even if our Snap 800 and even the 808 have iZat8gen GPS chipset seems like they'll not be updated, surely when the updates will be delivered (Q3 2017) someone will have to work on it and bring a custom driver for the other devices.
We can have BeiDou and Glonass but they're old comparing to the new standards carried by Galileo!
Unluckily this is the market and it's based on built-in obsolescence and new features are shown only on the last flagships.

Is there any chance for the Nexus 5 to get Galileo?

I think our chipset supports it?
