Changing between the simple and advanced modes

The GPS Position window displays information about the GPS connection and the current position. The window has two modes: simple and advanced. The simple mode shows the latitude and longitude values, altitude, speed, and heading for the current position. It also shows the connection status. The advanced mode adds the time, date, and magnetic variance. The horizontal, vertical, and positional dilutions of precision values are on the right side of the window. The dilution of precision values reflects the current satellite distribution. At the bottom left of the window is the number of satellites and the average signal-to-noise ratio. The ID of the differential GPS unit and the time since the last contact are displayed (if applicable) at the bottom right of the window.

  1. Click the Advanced button Advanced button and the Simple button Simple button to switch between the two displays.
