Lack of opportunity to purchase a lifetime license. And instead of this, only subscriptions for a certain time, that is what I don't want for sure. Not going to pay forever for the every tiny service on the Earth. Nowdays nearly everybody try to charge people in this way. So my choice lifetime license, or wait for a crack. Reply on reply: Looking forward for the lifetime license. Of couse not for a few euros. But I hope not as much as my GPS receiver.

A lifetime license would definitely be possible, but not for a few euros! Every developer has to constantly adapt their app to updates in new Google Android versions. Unfortunately, this can't be billed again for one-time purchases, hence the subscription model. Sorry if you don't like this, but no one is forcing you to license the app.

Using this, I have managed to link my non-gps Honor X9 Android Tablet to the Garmin Glo to allow use of Offline Google Maps. Critical steps were: 1) Select "Set Mock Location" in the app. 2) Enable "Developer" options in Android (If not visible, go to settings, find "About phone" or "About Tablet", and click "Build number" 7 times). You can select GPS connector in "Mock Location App".

Works fine when mock location is turned on in the phone's "Developer options" settings. Otherwise the data from the GPS receiver is not transmitted to other apps eg Race Chrono (or Google Maps). Some notes in the app on this requirement would be handy for new users. Also the app seems to be very power hungry even when not providing mock location data. Good thing: The Developer responded to my initial review and advised about the "Developer option" requirement.

You have to activate mocking on your phone in order to use the location from your external GNSS device. Please check my forum: http://gps-connector-forum.pilablu.de/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17
