KStars+GPSD Geographic location setting. #13974
Can we have an option in KStars to Set Geographic Location with GPSD? It wouldn't even have to wait for INDI to connect to GPSD if KStars can refer to GPSD on startup. This would be useful for mobile setups. Currently I have saved my usual sites and have to manually choose the one I am at for the best accuracy.
Thank you.

Well whatever solution must be cross-platform, so nothing that uses GPSd directly. In Qt, there is Qt Positioning which can be used for this purpose but I'll have to do further research. If anyone can implement this and send me a patch that would be great.
