Subject:Does gps data get logged to .csv and .gps if no gps-fix occurs?
Date:01:52:13 07/02/2007

I checked the source code, it appears in GPSDump.cc it has "if (in_packinfo->gps_fix < 2) return 0" so it appears that is does not record information in the .gps file. It was a little harder for the csvfile, it looks
like this is also the case in packetracker.cc in ProcessPacket and a few other places with "if (info->gps_fix >= 2) then it updates gps min lat etc.. .

If I could get confirmation to be sure that'd be great.

Does this mean that data in the .csv file is the same way, that is only AP information is recorded when there was a gps fix?
