gps

I am using XiiaLive Pro on a Garmin Monterra Android powered GPS. The local station feature doesn't work at all because the Monterra does not have a Phone/3G/4G capability, and therefore cannot use phone towers information for approximate location (it can connect to internet via WiFi only). It would be very helpful if XiiaLive could get the option back to use GPS as a location method.Maybe this could be implemented as an option available in the settings, that could be disabled for those who need. Thank you!

We are getting ready to release a new version which will use your IP as a backup to provide a rough location for the LOCALs search results.

Hey, thanks for the request! This is interesting tricky situation you have. Unfortunately in order to use the GPS location we would need the GPS location permission to be defined on the app... As we seen from experience this raises tons of suspicion from users that we are doing something else or that it is way to personal to have that permission simply for local radio... :(

This is the main reason we can't include that option. Maybe an option to provide zipcode could be useful in your case?
