Yes, i tried both "Sensors Status" and "Location Test", but they are
more or less "yes-no" apps, giving little o no information about the
process of getting a fix.

Sensors Status gave me a copule of times indication that a fix was
aquired indeed, but with very bad precision, and with no z axis positioning.

Yes, definitely i don't need a full featured graphical app (wich surely
will arrive over time), but a text log with selectable verbosity that
could help to track the fixing process.
