I didn't know any of that was even possible with android. I'm impressed it shows your location at all. interesting
best solution I can think of is to buy an ipad.
I have an iPad Pro and use the Ag Finiti app on it. I find that using the built in GPS is less than desirable. If I try to use it in a vehicle with a cab, I don't get decent reception. If I try to use it with my Ranger without a cab, it works but the onscreen location moves in rather large jumps. If I drive slowly, my location indicator will stay in one spot and then make a large jump.
I tried a Bad Elf GPS unit that plugged into the lightning port. It worked better when in a vehicle without a cab but was actually worse in a vehicle with a cab. I have not tried any of the external units where the GPS antenna could be mounted outside on a vehicle roof.
Another choice would be to get a device that takes the GPS from my higher end receivers in the tractor and feeds it into the iPad.
