1. GPS Timestamp
The date and time of the last received valid GPS update.

2. GPS Coordinates
Last coordinates received from GPS sensor.

3. GPS Course
The calculated course based on the last received GPS coordinates. This is only usable when moving at significant speeds.

4. Logger Orientation (Tilt)
The orientation of the logger on the horizontal lateral axis.

Note: This data is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

5. Logger Orientation (Compass)
The orientation of the logger on the vertical axis, with 0° as north. As the compass is sensitive to local magnetic interference this needs to be calibrated before usage, see your GPS Logger manual for details.

Note: This data is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

6. GPS Acceleration
Calculated accereation of the device based on the last received GPS coordinates. This is only usable when moving at significant speeds.

7. GPS Elevation
The elevation from sea level as reported by GPS updates.

8. GPS Satellites
The number of GPS satellites reporting data in the last update.

9. GPS Speed
Movement speed based on the last received GPS coordinates. This is only usable when moving at significant speeds.

10. Logger Orientation (Roll)
The orientation of the logger on the horizontal longitudinal axis.

Note: This data is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

11. Logger Pressure
Air pressure as measured by the barometer of the Logger.

Note: This data is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

12. Maps Button
Opens a browser window showing the curent GPS coordinates on Google Maps.

13. Logger Orientation (Visual)
Visual representation of the orientation values (Tilt, Roll and Compass) of the Logger, similar to aviation controls.

Note: This control is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

14. Logger Orientation (Summary)
Summary display of orientation values without GPS data for easier reading.

Note: This control is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.

15. Logger Datarate Setting
Controls the interval between updates of the Logger sensors other than GPS. The setting will stay even after disconnect and poweroff of the Logger (so it will be active for offline recording on SD-card), but will be reset to default (10 blocks/s) on the next connect.

Note: This control is only available when using the external Aaronia GPS Logger.
