The Live GPS Traking should include more informations such as:
Dilution of precision (eg. PDOṔ; GDOP)
Availability of SBAS (WAAS/EGNOS)
The ability to choose the quality parameters to collect data (maximum PDOP; collect only in 3D and/or DGPS)
Also, the ability to capture points/vertex by averaging GPS positions (determined by the user); Also it could capture lines or areas by streaming GPS position by time or by distance (the user chooses it's favorite and it's value).
These feature could improve the Live GPS Traking.
Best Regards,
Pedro Ferreira

Hi Pedro,

The additional information fields are already being considered - see #4071.

Capturing data based on various quality and for varying purposes suggests to me that there should be specific tools for particular tasks. These would make use of the GPS information as provided by the GPS Information widget. A more specific definition of these tools - what each does and which qualities to check for choosing data - would help to design such tools.
