Location services

Useful when your tablet or PC doesn't have a built-in GNSS receiver or the receiver cannot communicate on COM ports via NMEA sentences. The option can be switched on or off after restarting the program. When using location services topoXplore will get the position information from the Windows Location Services. You'll be prompted to enable to share location information. Note that the location from the Windows Location Services is less accurate than using a GNSS receiver because Windows will use location data also from Wi-Fi and other networks.
