Bug Description

Hi,

Although this is not a "bug", is a feature missing that has impact in the user experience. If we're "indoors" it's hard to get our location.

Best regards

Agree, same missing feature, the GPS signal does take a while to be picked up.

This is getting closer to being fixed thanks to the work of DeCode on the GeoClue2 location provider for Ubuntu: https://github.com/iamDecode/ubuntu-location-provider-geoclue2

I hope that it's possible to include this in our April 30th releases, but it depends on the state of the upstream project at that time.
