GPSMonitor Updated

I got a phone call from a guy who uses GPSMonitor to document pole locations for installing fiber optic cables. It turns out that he wanted to copy the latitude/longitude information and paste it into his documents rather than having to read and type the numbers.

It was an easy fix to update it so the button on the Average Location screen automatically copies all of the positional information so it can be easily pasted. While I was in there, I tossed in a 1 meter grid so you can see how far the GPS points wander over time when you're actually stationary due to the built-in variance in the signal.

This is a free app, supported just by donations and some web page ads. I was experimenting to identify the differences between my purchased license app PingGraph, and this ad-supported freebie. Both trickle in with a few bucks a month, so I try to keep them up-to-date, especially when people ask for features.
