Add Beidou support in addition to Glonass and GPS. Beidou constellation is already activated over Asia Pacific region and will have global coverage by 2017. This will greatly improve positioning with more GPS satellites available for all users, first in China, Hong Kong and neighbouring countries, then worldwide.

This is particularly important in highly built-up urban areas.

Future-proof Navigation for all!

The hardware should also be compatible with Galileo. I believe basic cross sytem compatibility is being built into most GPS chipsets now, but we should be aware that Galileo service will be starting soon and the software should allow for this.

@jotab14, this feature requires Beidou support on the hardware which is unfortunately not available on the Jolla tablet.

...maybe not in revision 1, but keep an eye on future chip development anyway! I do support the request generally!
