You may choose to enable logging. Figure 4 below shows the fully configured GPS settings tabs.
Click the OK button. inSSIDer will connect to Network/Bluetooth GPS and begin parsing the NMEA data. If the GPS has a location fix you will see the GPS location information in the status bar at the bottom as shown in Figure 5 below.
