GPS

Qt includes all kinds of nice positioning and location things, unfortunately they are not allowed in Jolla store yet, but it seems to be allowed to talk directly with geoclue trough D-Bus. Examples? Oh nonono. So after a loot of searching I found a blog post describing what you need to do and combined that to a simple Hello World GPS application.

Hello GPS was born.

It is a very basic app, just displayes the GPS data and nothing more.

Hello GPS!

Hello GPS is a basic GPS Hello World app, showing basic GPS information. The applications main purpose is the source, showing how to access GPS data trough D-Bus from GeoClue.

Why ?

This was the only way to access GPS information in a harbour sanctioned way. Since update "1.1.4.29 (Äijänpäivänjärvi)" you are allowed to use the Qt provied QtLocation and QtPositioning APIs.
