There is an app called SensorsStatus which gives some of the GPS
information (not the numbers of sats); at least it would show you if you
get a fix; in general, the apps I found until now are more for consumer
minded people, then for tech folks :-)

but we have the terminal app and we have SSH, and sudo...

btw: what would be the best approach to compile own software in C or
Java for the BQ? Is there some BQ-Ubuntu developer guide?
