New feature to add how MANY Sats connected to?
« on: March 21, 2008, 05:50:06 PM »
Hi,

I was thinking while using MS trips that a nice feature they have the TF doesnt is it Tells when and how long the GPS has been connected and also it Shows How many Sats the GPS is detecting. That would be a nice little feature to add to the next version?

What do you think? Right now I cant tell how many sats I am connected to with TF which 3 are needed but 4 for speed.

Thanks for the suggestion.  We'll look into it.  There should be standard NMEA sentences for that info.

It helps having the feature because my GPS in internal and has no Lights to show its connected. Also I never know how many sats are in my area with TF where MS trips I do. It would be a really helpful addition to TF imo.
