Hi Graham,

As fate would have it I just created a video tutorial for my students on reading mobile device sensors.

Hope you find these useful.

I am reviving my LiveCode skills in these troubled times, and I want to do something that involves the location of a device using GPS. A very rapid (obviously too rapid) search of the documentation finds commands like iphoneStartTrackingLocation, but no link to a description of how one reads the actual geographical coordinates or what form they take. There is a reference to CoreLocation, but that hasn’t got a dictionary entry.

Can anyone point me in the right direction. Sorry if it’s obvious.

Thanks in advance
