Adding GPS data to Skyview

I recently added a GPS to my Raspberry Pi running PIAWARE. I’d like to have the location and maybe other data displayed on the Skyview webpage. I’m thinking of taking the setup mobile and it’d be great to have that info available in one place.

Take a look at the alternative interface tar1090, provided by @wiedehopf.
There you can configure the columns to display the lat/long position.

Not what was asked for :confused:

The current device location is what he wants to display from the GPS.

tar1090 won’t display that.

Oh, yes… sorry, already in Friday mood :slight_smile:

If you can get gpsd set up and working with your GPS receiver, you should be able to use it to set your location which should in theory set your SkyAware location . There’s a use-gpsd piaware config option to enable it.

If you see any issues getting that working, let us know and we can take a look.
