Currently Alien dalvik layer does not support "set location by GPS" function.

How to reproduce: Install sports tracker ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stt.android ) - start tracking your downhill skiing - you will see message "location set by GPS" - when opening sports tracker next time, you will see error message: "unsupported action - That action is not currently supported" (and sports tracker crashes). Same behaviour with all versions up to

This would be nice to have next winter ;)

GPS works fine on Endomondo (both free and pro version)

Seems all the location based Android apps have this problem, I have foursquare, sports tracker and fieldtrip they all give the same error for GPS...

Tested with Sports Tracker 3.6.18 release (1115) and Update 10

I couldn't reproduce this problem anymore during 2h downhill skiing.

I think this has been fixed in Update 10 or in some previous update, but searching through the release notes the only line about gps in Android was in U10 release notes: Android runtime - Adds network provider support for GPS service.

Also Sports Tracker has been updated since last winter - I'm not sure if updates has made it to work any better.

Anyway, I will close the case as fixed to clean up the TJC. Thanks Jolla Sailors!
