As developers start to use firmware 1.5 I have updated the GPS status app to work with the new firmware.
The good news is that I no longer have to use internal APIs. Some features have been removed or changed:
- Screen orientation settig has been removed as it can be configured globally in 1.5
- Magnetic declination setting is removed too, but the good news is that declination is now automatically calculated (without internet access) based on a geomagnetic model. The model also gives the absolute value of the magnetc field at your location which is also displayed.
- finally: the GPS is not automatically turned on, because average programs can no longer turn on the GPS (it is possible only by using the system settings program) (GPS switch appliction will no longer work)
Have fun, comments are welcome.
