Live GPS works ok. However if you set a local CRS and a transformation error occurs (error is lat or long is out of range), then a Dialog pops up to let you know - waiting for a button press. Then it continues to pop up on every gps position (effectively locking the user access to the program) until you can kill the GPS input.
A friendlier notification is needed something like 'only show if last message was > x seconds/min ago' or something other then a message box, say a message in RED in the Live GPS Gui.
Also useful would be a capability like in the capture coordinate to put a second Coord (CRS) in the Gui as well. Maps are generally not printed in lat-long! and despite the digital world, printed maps are still a nice in the field QA.
Another item - can the gps device spec be editable as well as the pre-defined ones? Eg USB GPS devices under linux can occur as ttyUSBx or in some cases as ttyACMx.
